2024 Giro d’Italia with inGamba
We’re going to celebrate the 2023 Giro d’Italia in style, and we officially invite you to join the fun! Eros Poli will be your guide to the Corsa Rosa, arguably the season’s most difficult, and most beautiful, grand tour.
With a palmarès that includes an Olympic gold medal and a legendary stage of the ’94 Tour de France, Eros is the perfect guide for this race, and he will not only share his vast knowledge of the pro peloton, but also show you some of the most amazing rides that Italy has to offer.
On this trip you’ll get to sample the best of it while also getting closer to the action than anyone else thanks to our friends in high places. There’ll also be plenty of Mangia, Beve and Bici along the way as you test yourself on some of Italy’s great climbs before heading to see the final dramatic stage.

MEET THE GUIDES
The night before Eros Poli took victory atop Mont Ventoux he couldn’t sleep. It was not like he was dreaming of victory or even had the slightest idea the next day’s stage would change his life forever. It was just that it was hot. Unbearably, unsleepably hot in his less-than stellar French hotel. His roommate had taken his mattress off the bed and was sleeping on the small balcony outside their room. And the man who would shortly become known as Monsieur Ventoux was watching football, Italy vs. Brazil in the World Cup final, to be exact. Italy lost. The following morning as Eros dragged his weary, tired legs out of bed and down the stairs, as there was no lift, James Brown came into his head. “I feel good, I knew that I would now,” started to repeat over and over in his head. As it would the rest of the day. He felt good and the rest, as they say, is history.
Paulo began mountain biking at the early age of 16, and soon his love for bicycles, road cycling, and mechanics were there. Almost a decade later, he decided to take the risk and become a bicycle mechanic, but he never stopped participating in granfondos and amateur races. He joined inGamba as a mechanic in 2019 and now he is also one of our guides.
