Giro del Veneto

The Giro del Veneto is a semi classic European bicycle race held in the region of Veneto, Italy. The race is a 1.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour, meaning a one-day race that is not the hardest in difficulty, but harder than most. In 2012 the race merged with another Italian classic, Coppa Placci, after some financial problems.
