Giro d'Italia organiser RCS Sport is considering a women's race to run alongside its top event. General Manager Paolo Bellino explained to Cycling Weekly that his team has discussed it.

"It's not at the top of our list but it's also not the last item," Bellino said. "We are looking over a series of things, including something for the women. It's an important subject. We want to be modern and up to date like we've always been."
