The Giro d'Italia on Google Maps
The Giro d'Italia is an annual bike race primarily held in Italy. This year's race takes place from May 4th until Sunday May 26th.
Cycling the Alps creates detailed Google Maps and Google Earth tours for most of the major European cycle races and this year's Giro d'Italia is no exception. On Cycling the Alps you can find detailed Google Maps of each of the tour's stages. For each stage you can view a detailed stage profile, view a 3d tour of each stage using the Google Earth plug-in and even play a Google Earth cycling game of each stage.
This year Cycling the Alps has also created a great preview video of Stage 19 of the race using Google Maps Street View imagery of the beautiful Stelvio Pass.
