Una bellissima notizia! #girodonne is safe, and it will take place from the 28th June to the 7th July! #CICLISMO fb.me/1U3RsP2Za— Valentina Scandolara (@ValeScandolara) February 27, 2013 This is excellent news - the Giro Donne is the only women's Grand Tour left on the calendar, the only race allowed to be over a week long. It was under threat after the organisers withdrew, exhausted after sponsors pulled out in 2011, and it's been touch-and-go every since. This is such a relief!
