Giro d’Italia(GDI) 2019 – 102

Giro d’Abruzzo, friends & guests witnessed the GDI 2019. We saw the finish of a stage, took part during the stage & finally saw a start of the stage. Riding on closed roads prior to the event & being a part of the VIP areas where the riders were being interviewed.

We had the best news ever when we found out the Giro d ‘Italia was coming to our town, Canosa Sannita.

Giro D’Abruzzo, the Mayor & locals of our town, put on an amazing celebration for the event.

The town was lavished in GDI merchandise & the local businesses supplied food & wine. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity & we had the best time we could ever imagine.

We were up close to the officials, talking with the cars & Police checking the route prior to to Pro-cyclists & getting all the updates.

We had a group of clients with us & we rode the closed roads route, prior to to Pros. When we came into the town, we were cheered by the locals who treated us as if we were the Pros.

Fun, memories, laughter, good food, wine & quiet Italian roads, what a great way to see and celebrate GDI 102.

 

We cannot wait until 2020’s route is announced & plan your next venture.

2018 marked the year of Giro D’Abruzzo launching & the making of our film(see video at the bottom of the home page)

It was also year 101 of the Giro d’Italia(GDI).also the year we last saw Team Sky racing.(GDA)

GDA, along with friends & guests got involved in riding the closed roads of 3 stages, joining in. the start and finish of the celebrations & we had a competition as to who could get the most memorabilia. Nick won of cause ( we, we decided to let him haha, as he was cooking that evening)

Arrival in Penne, Abruzzo, guided by Debbie & Kevin, saw us enter the Pro-Riders area where the tour buses & riders were waiting to start.  There we rode & spoke briefly along to the start with the likes of Chris Froome & other famous world tour team riders from teams such as Bora Bora, Trek, Michelin Scott, Lotto to name but a few.

While the the race was waiting to start, Debbie & Kevin were interview by the local TV news channel & by Miss Italy 2018 & were very excited about this. Although, there is a funny side to this as Debbie didn’t know who the woman was talking to her until Kevin mentioned it & she saw the pictures later that days!

These celebrations were a great time full on memories to launch GDA. All the pictures you see related to this were taken by GDA & our professional photograph on the day.
