Roads, landscapes, finish lines, fans, passion and colours: the same as those of the Giro d’Italia and taking place on the very same days, but this time on e-bikes. After three weeks, 18 stages and 1,829 kilometres, the first Giro E powered by Enel X has ended with a flourish: on Saturday 1 June the Dolomites served as the stunning backdrop for the final stage, from Predazzo to Croce d'Aune-Monte Avena, in the province of Belluno.
In the end the maglia viola (purple jersey), which is awarded to the race leader, went to the Epowers Factory Team. But the Giro E is not, and will not be, merely a race, but a unique experience, offering a new way to savour the Italy of the Giro with all its climbs and descents. Of course, there was no lack of serious competition from some quarters, but the event was above all a celebration of sport and one that managed to achieve its main goals: to offer the possibility to anyone to experience the thrills of the Giro d’Italia and to promote electric mobility.
