Vegni: “Reducing the Round from 21 to 18 stages? We want damage, but we will defend the product”

After the decision, which was already in the air, to slide the Tour de France at the end of August (29 August-20 September), the full calendar of the UCI will be to reprogram. Also the Vuelta , and then the Giro d’italia are to reschedule. And if ASO, which also organizes the Vuelta over the Tour, has decided who will be 18 and not 21 the stages of the Spanish race, RCS does not want to do the same for the Giro d’italia.
