On Monday 5th April, the U23 international classic race in Villa di Villa (Treviso, Northern Italy) will take place without spectators, while adopting strict security measures. The race will be streamed live starting at 4.30 pm CET
Only one week to go before the 82nd edition of Giro del Belvedere, the international race for U23s, scheduled on Monday 5th April in Villa di Villa (Treviso, Northern Italy). The ongoing pandemic did not discourage the Pro Belvedere: the organizing committee is preparing an event of international significance, with 35 teams including several youth UCI World Tour ones.
In compliance with the current Italian regulations, Giro del Belvedere will be held without spectators, but fans will get the opportunity to follow the competition by live streaming. Starting from 4.30 pm CET., Giro del Belvedere footage will be broadcasted on the Facebook page and Youtube channel of the event and Tuttobiciweb.it, one of the most popular cycling media in Italy.
“At the Giro del Belvedere, we usually welcome a huge number of spectators as in the top classics for professionals. – the head of the OC Gianfranco Carlet explained – This year, as we won’t share these emotions on the field, we decided to give fans the opportunity to watch the event live on streaming. It’s something we had been thinking about for years and now the time has come.”
To guarantee the highest safety standards, the Pro Belvedere organizers will provide staff and accredited media with a free COVID antigenic test service during the days leading up to the event.
Athletes racing at Giro del Belvedere will ride on a 166,8 Km route, designed on two loops: the first one of 9,4 Km with the “Conche” climb will be repeated 14 times, while the final circuit (17,6 Km to be repeated twice) covers the symbolic climb of the race, the Montaner from the Borgo Canalet side.
Unlike the last editions, the final circuit does not cover “Via delle Longhe” hill, but from the KOM of Montaner, athletes will face a 2.5 km downhill stretch and a 6.5 km flat section through the towns of Sarmede and Silvella.
