28th GiroSardegna - How has the 2024 edition changed (for the better)?

The GiroSardegna 2024 program was published in September 2023 in its classic structure: two race routes (GranGiro and MedioGiro) with six stages to compete and within these an International Middle Distance Championship and a National Combined Championship…

… the hotel chosen was “super” (the Club Hotel Marina Beach****) and the 330 reserved rooms were already filling up with old and new friends day by day; at the end of October we had already exceeded 100 members, which in December would probably have become 400 and then reached 500 by the time registration closed on 28 February 2024!

In short, everything was going as expected… but it wasn’t enough for me; for some time I was looking for “things” to improve an event that is already absolutely more than valid!

I had eliminated the Team Time Trial and replaced it with a Circuit stage in which I had wanted the “division of the sexes” (men competed in the morning and women in the afternoon), but it wasn’t enough for me: I felt that the “something” I was waiting for would arrive…

Then one day, by pure chance, I visited the Bidderosa Naturalistic Oasis not far from Orosei, an 860 hectare park with 5 dream coves; forest, beaches, ponds and pure Nature and I said to myself “it would be really fantastic if all the participants in next year’s GiroSardegna could see it!”

  But the roads inside that Earthly Paradise were unpaved and although there are events that seek out unpaved roads (the Eroica, the Strade Bianche, etc.), I certainly couldn’t let the GranGiro and MedioGiro pass through them… but day after day the “something” grew and consolidated, until it became what, without knowing it, I was looking for: the GiroSardegnaGravel!

Thus was born the first outline of the “Bidderosa Gravel circuit”: a spectacular stage/game intended only for GiroSardegna members which then, day after day, became what it is now: one of the tests of the UCI Gravel World Series!

Obviously the recognition that the UCI wanted to give to Sardinia fills me with satisfaction, because it attests to the trust that the governing body of world cycling has placed in GiroSardegna, recognizing its organizational quality and deeming it worthy of being a world selection event!

It is true that I had to review some details of the program because the “big news” made it necessary, but there is no need to fear: the GiroSardegna will remain what it has always been preserving the formula that everyone has liked for about thirty years, and yet he adds “that something extra”.

And in the 5th stage, forgetting the General Ranking for a day, the men and women registered will be able to limit themselves to doing just one lap of the Gravel Circuit, pedaling relaxed in areas that they would never have been able to see if “this thing” had not manifested itself (it will have right inside the enclosures of animals that graze in the wild or on the sand of the splendid beaches of the Oasis)!

… but the Women (by engaging in two Laps of the Circuit) and the Men (with three Laps of the Circuit) if they want to do so, will ALSO be able to gain the right to participate in the Gravel World Championship: it will be enough to be at the finish line within the 25th position of each category!

But being a World Series event (25 races in 19 nations) can and must be an even broader showcase for a GiroSardegna that deserves the world spotlight and for an Island that has the right to have it!

And perhaps, for the Gravel Champions, it could also be a reason to discover the 28th edition of a cycling event that starts from a very high base to become even bigger!!!

Ultimately, the GiroSardegna 2024 is an opportunity not to be missed, read the program, choose the method of participation but, above all, sign up now if you want to be there!!

What the event "GiroSardegna" is?

The secret of the success of “GiroSardegna” is quite simple: after the first stage each cyclist knows the number, the name and the face of “his” opponents; from that moment all the others will disappear and for a week each cyclist lives to overcome the one that beat him for a few seconds … while watching his back from the one he left behind a few seconds!

So even those who arrive at the finish line one hour after the winner they will study the rankings everyday!

And then it’s wonderful to go cycling in beautiful areas at that time of the year (Sardinia in late spring is a riot of colors and smells!) living the absolute quality of the selected hotels and the “climate” that we always managed to create between all participants.

Stages starts in convenient times; departures/arrivals are close to the hotel; the roads have a perfect asphalt; nature is a postcard: all these combined elements built an event without equal in the world with a right philosophy and well done organization!

The cycling week is a complete and multiface event:

The “competitive” racetracks

Two are the competitive racetracks everyday but, ATTENTION, the levels of participants are very different, and EVERYONE can join the Giro without fear: there are those who are riding the 40 km hourly average, but also those who go to 30 and those who are struggling to get to 20:

Blue path (made by the registered at MedioGiro) – stages of medium difficulty.

Red path (made by the registered at GranGiro) – longer stages, with some more climbing.

Each day TWO departures and TWO charts that, in sum of times, forms TWO overall rankings (absolute and age categories) in each path:

WARNING: To remain in the overall rankings (absolute and for age category), the cyclist subscribed to GranGiro or MedioGiro must conclude the path each day: if you do NOT reach the finish line in a stage, you leave the charts but in the following days you can be at the starting line anyway, attending only the day charts.

Race departures

In the stages we respect our ancient tradition: two grids including all cyclists (men and women) with TWO departures (at the start will go first the members of the MedioGiro then the members of the GranGiro).

In the time trial races: the start of the individual time trial (2nd stage) are in reverse order to the general classification (the last in the standings start first and at the end the first ones will start); in the team time trial (4th stage) the departures are in order of presentation of the teams.

Types of entries

Cyclists at the time of registration must necessarily choose whether to join:

to one of the competitive routes: MedioGiro or GranGiro: those who register must be in possession of a sports card for cycling races; the card can be Italian or foreigner but must be valid for the year 2024. Those who do not have one, can apply to join our sports group by sending an appropriate medical certificate to girosardegna@gmail.com

to the NOT racing “Tour”: you can join WITHOUT be enrolled in a sports club and simply endorsing the accession implying disclaimer. Tour will also enroll cyclists with an Electric Bike. The registered “Tour” pays a lower level despite having the same rights as agonists (custom number, gadgets, refreshments, draws lots of awards, etc.). In each day you will be free to choose the path that want to (Green, Red and Blue) course without participating in the race rankings. Every day is fixed a starting “group”, but everyone is free to ride when, how and with whom he wants.
