The Giro Donne was launched on Saturday 27th February with the unveiling of the stages and reaction from previous champion, Edita Puckinskaite. The event took place at the Diadora Museum of Sport. Diadora are to be a long running sponsor to this race.

Maurizio Sacconi, Director General of Diadora, along with the President of the Italian Cycling Federation, Renato Di Rocco and President (and long-time Director) of the Giro Donne, Giuseppe Rivolta and other dignitaries presented the twenty-first edition of the race. The Giro Donne is highly regarded by cycling authorities, the Italian public and competitors. Running during the first two weeks of the Tour de France, the event benefits from extensive TV coverage when the broadcasters in Italy switch from their live coverage of the Tour stage to show highlights from the Giro Donne stage of that day.

The 21st edition will be a 921 kilometre test, based mainly in the northern Italy, with a sojourn into Switzerland in the closing stages. The event is considered a test for the climbers and the highlight will be the mountaintop finish at Stelvio on the penultimate, eighth stage. The race returns to familiar ground, the mecca of cycling; the Ghisallo on stage seven, which is where Puckinskaite secured her 2006 overall victory (when it was the final stage). This time, though, instead of finishing there, the race descends to the finish in Albese con Cassano.
