The island will host a stage of the Corsa Rosa for the third time in its history. Cyclists will trek 565 kilometers across the entire region, cycling from Sassarese to Gallura, from Nuoro to Olgiatria, until they reach the center of Cagliari.

This year the Giro d'Italia knows no limits and will be broadcast around the world. The race, for its 100th edition, will be followed by 194 countries.

Record coverage for the international signal, with four and a half hours of live broadcast for each stage, plus three weekly magazines of 52 minutes each with race highlights, how say the GazzettadelloSport.
