The Giro d'Italia Femminile is an annual elite women's road bicycle racing stage race. One of the main races in women's road cycling, it was rebranded in 2013 as the Giro Rosa, having previously been branded the Giro Donne.

History[edit]

Previously known as the Giro Donne, the race historically was a nine- or ten-day event taking place in Italy in early July each year, generally competing for attention with the more famous men's Tour de France. While the rebranded Giro Rosa has kept its position in the racing calendar, it was shortened in 2013 to eight days, before returning to its traditional ten-day length the next year.

With the cancellation of the Tour de l'Aude Cycliste Féminin after 2010, the Giro Donne was the only Grand Tour left in women's cycling, and in December 2012 Wieler Review reported that the company Epinike had withdrawn as Giro Donne organiser, making the 2013 edition uncertain. In April 2013, however, organisers announced a shortened and rebranded Giro, so that the Giro Rosa would go ahead in 2013. In 2016, the race became part of the new UCI Women's WorldTour, organized by the Union Cycliste Internationale.[1]
