The organisers of the Giro d’Italia Donne have said a change of date may be considered for future editions of the race as they look to coexist with the newly-launched Tour de France Femmes , both held in July in 2022. The 2022 race, officially launched on Thursday, promises several changes including two hours of live TV coverage per day, and a prize pot of €250,000 , increased to be in line with the Tour de France Femmes’ prize money offering.
The Giro Donne currently takes place at the start of July, this year finishing just 13 days before the start of the Tour de France Femmes. It has been suggested that the race align with the RCS-organised men’s Giro d’Italia in May, but PMG Sport say this is not a priority.
“We are evaluating as organisers, and together with the UCI the best date on the women’s calendar for the Giro Donne,” said Roberto Ruini, founder of PMG Sport and the race’s General Manager.
“In order to guarantee a window between the two races, Giro Donne and the Tour de France Femmes, the key is not really the Giro d’Italia men, but the women’s cycling calendar.”
