Have you ever dreamed of experiencing the magic of the Giro d’Italia from the inside? The BKOOL training platform and RCS Sport, the official organiser of the Giro d’Italia, have teamed up once again to bring the Corsa Rosa closer to the fans.
A new edition of the Giro d’Italia Virtual hosted by BKOOL, an indoor training experience that transports participants to the real stages of the Giro 2023 without having to leave home, starts on 18 October.
How can you take part in the Virtual Giro d’Italia?
All you need to take part in this virtual experience is to own a Smart Bike or a Smart
Wheel and create a user account at www.bkool.com. BKOOL offers a free 30-day trial on its website for all new registrations, and

The immersive technology behind the Virtual Giro d’Italia
To create the most realistic and immersive experience possible, BKOOL has implemented an innovative simulation technology that combines high-definition videos shot during the real stages of the last edition of the Giro with 3D elements. The result allows the user to discover in detail the most emblematic sections of the race as if they were there, sharing their experience with thousands of cyclists from all
over the world.
