Ciclismo Cup 2018

The former "Coppa Italia" turned into the Ciclismo Cup in 2017, and with the introduction of PMG Sport as a new media partner it turned out to be a very successful first year, I think. Let's hope we can expect more of the same this time.

February 11th      1.HC      Trofeo Laigueglia

April 16th-20th      2.HC      Tour of the Alps
April 22nd      1.1      Giro dell’Appennino
June 20th-24th      2.1      Adriatica Ionica Race/Following the Serenissima Routes
September 15th      1.1      Coppa Agostoni – Giro delle Brianze
September 16th      1.1      100° Coppa Bernocchi – 43° GP BPM
September 18th-19th      2.1      Giro della Toscana – Memorial Alfredo Martini
September 20th      1.1      Coppa Sabatini – Gran Premio città di Peccioli
September 22nd      1.1      Memorial Marco Pantani
September 23rd      1.1      Trofeo Matteotti
October 6th      1.HC      Giro dell’Emilia
October 7th      1.HC      Gran Premio Bruno Beghelli
October 9th      1.HC      Tre Valli Varesine
October 10th      1.HC      Milano-Torino
October 11th      1.HC      Gran Piemonte

Unfortunately it starts with a low, as the GP GS Emilia (formerly GP della Costa Etruschi) had to be cancelled, but therefor the Trofeo Laigueglia the week after is set to have a stellar line up at least, and for the first time with live coverage.

The Giro del Piemonte return to its place as the final race before Il Lombardia after sitting out in 2017 (and hosting the National Championships instead), and as a new addition in June there's the Adriatica Ionica Race. It's a very ambitions project, organized by Moreno Argentin. Over a period of three years, it it supposed to grow into a 10 day race, starting in Venice, and finishing in Athens, visiting countries like Slovenia, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia and Macedonia.

For the first edition the organizers "only" plan to visit Italy, Austria and Slovenia, but even that sounds very ambitious, and I guess it's better to be a bit cautious at first.
