The four jerseys will be exhibited for a week in the Rizzoli Bookstores in Milano Galleria and in New York, plus Apeldoorn in the Netherlands, where the 2016 race will start.

Participating at the launch were Trek-Segafredo's sprinter Giacomo Nizzolo (winner of Giro 2015 red jersey), Paolo Bettini and past general classification winners, Gianni Motta and Vittorio Adorni.

“It was a great emotion for me winning the best sprinter’s classification and wear this jersey on the Milan podium, the city where I was born," Nizzolo said.  

"I fought for this jersey day after day. I think about it a lot and I want to win it again this year. My goal at the Giro will be that and my team, Trek-Segafredo, is organising the perfect supporting cast to help me in the sprints. We will have a very strong team at the Giro d’Italia”.

SBS will broadcast and livestream every stage of the 2016 Giro d'Italia from 6-29 May. Full details will be published as we get closer to the event.
