IN NUMBERS - THE LE COL GIRO CHALLENGE

Whilst the Tour is a whirlwind of madness, the Giro is a race of passion. Celebrating the racing on the roads of Italy, hundreds of thousands of you took to the road, generating staggering numbers.

Slightly down from the number of people who took part in the Tour Challenge, but the Tifosi are a discerning group, and they powered on into late October - over half a million in strength.

That's a whopping 88% of people who signed up to take part completing the challenge - over half a million riders making it over the 4 hour finish line.

26 million hours. For contrast, the Empire State Building took just 7 million to construct, giving you a sense of just the monumental scale of this achievement.

Dropping by 500,000 from the Tour Challenge, 7,290,405 activities were recorded, suggesting people rode longer and further through rougher weather.

They're on the rise. With winter knocking at the door, virtual rides crept up to over the half a million mark for the first time since March. With European lockdowns coming, will they rise further?

That's roughly 36 laps of the sun at it's equator, let alone Italy, completed in just three weeks. It's an impressive total given the wet weather as the world switches seasons and we look towards the road ahead.

OUR WINNER IS....
