2012 Giro d'Italia: The Young Riders' Edition

This year's Giro has 54 riders, of the 198 starters, classified as young riders and competing for the Maglia Bianca. Riders born after January 1, 1987 are in this classification.

So far, the pink jersey has been won only by young riders:
Taylor Phinney, 21 years old
Ramunas Narvadauskas, 24 years old
Adriano Malori, 24 years old

This year's race also has a foreign slant with only 58 Italians in the 198 starters.
