A memorable three days, with the Slovenian writing a page of cycling history and recalling his connection with Little Tibet

Livigno, 21/05/2024 - It was an epic moment at the climax of the queen stage of this edition number 107 of the Giro d'Italia, in an afternoon of great sporting narrative, which no one will ever forget. Even in a context of absolute excellence, full of side events, concerts, and shows, it was the Slovenian who took all the cover of this Livigno passage of the pink race, for a well-deserved media storm that overwhelmed him and Little Tibet with affection, arm in arm in this triumph.

From a technical point of view, the most eagerly awaited stage of 2024 was resolved in the extraordinary solo performance of King Tadej, who set off alone in pursuit of the escapees, once he reached the Foscagno Pass. It was a feast of cycling, with unreal gradients, the support of the thousands of fans who had arrived in Livigno from all over the world, and breathtaking shots. None more spectacular than the one that immortalised the two young Italian freestylers, Flora and Miro Tabanelli, vaulting over the Slovenian's head at Mottolino: a perfect photograph of the soul of the resort. A collective ecstasy, later confirmed by the words of an excited Pogacar, who on arrival recalled his deep bond with Livigno, admitting how he had been waiting months for this stage. ‘This is one of the most beautiful places in Italy, I've been coming here since I was a kid. I have been thinking about this stage since September,’ said the champion.

After the organisational success of the queen stage, the most followed of the Pink Race, Livigno also offered a full programme of entertainment to all the fans who flocked to the Little Tibet, who between Saturday and Tuesday were able to enjoy numerous side events, able to enrich the experience of this 2024 edition. Great participation, in particular, for the show of The Kolors, who on the evening of Monday 20 lit up the sky of Livigno, making the more than 4,000 people flocked to the occasion, among fireworks, balloons and food trucks. Excellent audience response for the talk ‘La fabbrica dei Sogni’, with the participation of Sonny Colbrelli and Elia Viviani, and for the Carovana Party, which entertained those present with a play of lights and choreography in pink colours. There was also a good turnout for the children's race, organised by the Sporting Club Livigno, and for the Village of the Stage Partners, which animated the resort for three days.

A place that greeted the Giro d'Italia with the start of stage number 16, which was planned from the Aquagranda Olympic Preparation Centre, and then moved to Lasa.

Everything was ready to ensure that the numerous spectators present also enjoyed the spectacle of the start, but due to unfavourable weather conditions, the organisers modified and shortened the route of the stage. A change that did not affect the magnificent three days of sport, entertainment and culture that welcomed the Giro d'Italia to Livigno. For cycling fans, an appointment with the Alé la Merckx, scheduled for 29 June.
