The Giro d’Italia is a race known for epic mountain battles on climbs like the Passo di Gavia and the Passo di Stelvio. To celebrate this iconic race and its always exciting fight for the Maglia Rosa, Castelli and Strava are challenging you to ride the combined distance of stages 10, 14, 15, 19 and 20 from this year’s race. These five stages, all major summit finishes, are where the eventual winner will undoubtably prove they have what it takes to bring home the Maglia Rosa.
Riders that successfully complete the Challenge will have the chance to take home an exclusive jersey produced by Castelli and only available for purchase by Challenge finishers. To join the challenge, visit Strava’s website for details.
In addition to the Strava challenge, Castelli will also be hosting a photo contest on Instagram through the duration of the Giro. Show off your favorite rides, a favorite view, or where you will watch the Giro. Post and Tag your photos to have a chance to win.
Five winners will receive a Castelli Climbers Jersey, and five more will receive Castelli Socks.

Castelli traces its roots back to 1876 and a fine tailor, Vittore Gianni, in the heart of Milan. Through the years, Vittore Gianni clothed AC Milan, Juventus, and the Milan Ballet. The first cycling clothing was made in the 1910s for the five-time Giro champion Alfredo Binda.
