by Jeanine Laudy

The pink confetti has been swept off the streets of Italy, locals are returning to their day-to-day, and the riders have moved onto the next race or training block. The 2016 Giro Rosa is in books but we’re not done talking about it yet.

The feeling around women’s cycling’s only remaining grand tour, the Giro Rosa, this year was mostly frustration. The best female riders in the world were putting on a show that no one could see.

Sure, the timing is unfortunate as all the attention is focused on the Tour de France but the information and coverage provided by the organisers and TV media was scarce at best. Luckily, the women’s cycling community took to Twitter, as it always does, and with the help of several teams live-tweeting the stages, it was possible for us to follow and report on the event.

You can relive the 2016 edition through our coverage, the Giro Rosa Round-ups here, or simply scroll down to the bottom of this article for the UCI highlights videos of all the stages.
