2012 GiroDonne (Giro d’Italia Femminile)

The 23rd edition of the GiroDonne, Giro d’Italia Femminile (Women's Giro d'Italia), get's underway tomorrow, June 29th, in Naples. The race, the most important stage race on the women's calendar, will finish in Bergamo after nine stages. The race will cover nearly 1000 km through seven regions, Campania, Lazio, Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Piedmont and Lombardy. A shame that the most important woman's stage race will be in the shadows of the Tour de France.

Raisport 2 will have a 50 minute daily program from 7.00 pm to 7.50 pm (Italy), with a replay at approximately 11.00 pm. It will be possible to follow the coverage through Raisport 2 streaming on the web  at the same time at www.raisport.rai.it.
