Grand Tour season is within touching distance and we can’t quite contain our excitement at Skedaddle HQ…
Alongside two last-minute spots becomming available on our Giro d’Italia 2017 special departing next week, we wanted to share the trips where you can experience riding the regions which will feature in the 3 big races this year!
Ride the route: Giro D’Italia
We say: 2017 marks the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia, and kicks off in much-loved Sardinia, promising an unforgettable start to the race. But for those seeking impressive mountain stages, the Stelvio promises to wow later in the race (stage 16). To have a crack at this impressive mountain climb yourself we recommend: Italian Alps or Raid Dolomiti.
Ride the route: Tour de France
We say: The biggest road race in the world is back for more dramatic action this summer when it visits 5 mountain ranges (the first time in 25 years!) For your chance to conquer a couple of the iconic cols that will feature, join us on the: RAID Alpine or Pyrenees Challenge.
Ride the route: Vuelta a España
We say: Seeing the European Grand Tours out for the season will be a challenging route in sunny Spain where the pro riders will face everything from the stunning Sierras in the South to the legendary Angrilu in the North. Try these peaks for yourself by joining: Andalucian Cape to Cape or Vuelta Classics.
