The famous road cycling race Giro d’Italia returned to Slovenia after 17 years, as today’s 15th stage from Grado to Gorizia also made a turn to Slovenia’s picturesque wine-growing region of Brda and the city of Nova Gorica.
This is the sixth time the Grand Tour race passed through Slovenia, after 1922, 1971, 1994, 2001 and 2004. A number of spectators gathered along the 40km Slovenian section of the 147km route, particularly along the steep 2km-climb to Gornje Cerovo.
