Presentation on Mottolino of the toughest finish line of the pink race: under the gaze of the champions the countdown begins

The perfect appetizer for what promises to be an epic day was enjoyed in Livigno on Saturday, April 20th, one month before the arrival of stage 15 of the 107th Giro d'Italia. Starting from Lake Garda and leading cyclists to the peaks of the Little Tibet, this pedal-powered spectacle, marked on the calendar by top contenders for the final victory, kicks off the third week of the pink race and has all the makings of a pivotal moment in Italy's most beloved tour. The spectacular finish line, situated at 2400 meters above sea level and at the end of a grueling 220 km route rated five stars for difficulty, will surely provide unforgettable moments and likely significant shifts in the rankings. All within a four-day extravaganza filled with collateral activities and unmissable cultural events, including The Kolors' highly anticipated show on the evening of May 20th and the talk The Factory of Dreams with Elia Viviani and Sonny Colbrelli. It's a true cycling celebration, complemented by theatrical performances, film screenings, a race for children from the Sporting Club Livigno to kick off the weekend, and numerous other initiatives tailored to make the Giro's arrival in Little Tibet unforgettable.

To present the stage, Mottolino, the venue for the 2026 Olympics, was decked out in celebration with the installation of a grandstand embracing the entire finish area.
