Preview

A challenging parcours awaits the riders who will contest the 27th Giro del Trentino. The race features four stages, running from April 24-27. With several climbs included in each stage, including a mountaintop finish on stage two (with a final kilometre at 8.5%), the race will serve as a key test before the Giro d'Italia, which begins May 10. A strong climber is favoured to win the race, which is anything but flat.

Dario Frigo (Fassa Bortolo), Gilberto Simoni (Saeco), and Marco Pantani (Mercatone Uno-Scanavino) are expected to line up at the start, although two-time defending champion Francesco Casagrande will be leading the Lampre charge at Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
