After a decade of absence, the Giro del Veneto returns to the professional cycling calendar. Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert is invited to the classic, organized for the first time in 1909 and now part of a triptych with the unprecedented Serenissima Gravel and the Veneto Classic.
Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux will write the first pages of the Veneto Classic (1.1, 17/10), which is for the first time on the calendar this Sunday. From the start in Venice, the riders will leave the Lagoon behind to enter the Belluno province, at the feet of the Dolomites. They will have to accomplish the short climbs of La Rosina (3x) and the Mur de la Tisa (2x). At the end of 206 kilometer of racing, the peloton will arrive in Bassano del Grappa, native village of Andrea Pasqualon.
