The Pro Belvedere Organising Committee already at work towards the 83rd edition of the U23 international cycling “classic”, scheduled on Monday, April 18th, 2022
Nearly seen as a springtime World Championship for U23 riders, the Giro del Belvedere is one of the most awaited showcases of the season for cycling rising stars whose heritage will be strengthened by the 83rd edition to be held on April 18th, 2022, as usual on Easter Monday.
Future international cycling prospects world are awaited in Villa di Villa (Treviso, North-East Italy), first up the five-star Spaniard talent Juan Ayuso, who won last year thanks to a powerful action which led some cycling opinion leaders to dare his name to a true two-wheel legend such as Alberto Contador.
The international classic held in the Veneto region will be once again organised by Pro Belvedere, an historical club deeply linked to the U23 cycling panorama now managing to be on the spotlights again after a hard pandemic period.
“The organisation of the last edition was a tough challenge indeed, but the results paid off – the OC leader Gianfranco Carlet explained -. We are already working on 2022, at the moment we have already received around forty applications and we expect even more before making the final selection of the teams at the start”.
Once again there will be 35 teams on the starting grid, each of five riders. As usual, a large number of international Continental teams are expected to participate. In almost a century of history (the first edition dates back to 1923), the Giro del Belvedere has seen the triumph of many future champions such as Vito Favero, Maurizio Fondriest, Silvio Martinello,Ivan Gotti and the current double European TT champion Stefan Kueng.
