With just two weeks to go before the Giro d’Italia, the Tour of the Alps will be a key preparation race as the contenders test their form and that of their rivals… and Kwesé Sports 1 will have exclusive coverage on the fifth and final day’s action when the winner is crowned.

For those not familiar with this race, it is because it’s a new name on the UCI World Tour circuit. However, it is a familiar race… it’s the Giro del Trentino, rebranded for 2017.

In its original guise, it started off as a one-day race in 1962, was held a year later and then the third edition only came around in 1979. Since then though it has gradually grown and this year’s will be the 41st.

In years gone by, the race has (unsurprisingly) been dominated by Italians; Damiano Cunego holds the record with three titles while Francesco Moser, Paolo Savoldelli, Francesco Casagrande and Vincenzo Nibali have each won twice. Cunego, Moser and Savoldelli even went on to win the Giro the same year they won in Trentino.

However, the last three winners have not been from ‘The Boot’. Australian Cadel Evans won the 2014 edition, followed by his compatriot Richie Porte in 2015 and Spaniard Mikel Landa last year.

The question though, is who will triumph on the final 192.5km stage from Smarana to Trento in this year’s race and will it be decisive?
