Trofeo Melinda was a single-day road bicycle race held annually in Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, Italy. After 2005, the race was organised as a 1.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour. It was created after the disappearance of Giro dell'Umbria, held between 1910 and 1991. In 2013 and 2014, the Trofeo Melinda was run as the Italian National Road Race Championships.[1] After 2014, the race was merged with the nearby early-season stage-race Giro del Trentino.[2]
