Although we’ve got to wait until Sunday before next year’s Giro d’Italia route is unveiled, race organiser RCS Sport whetted our appetites yesterday when they released a fantastic teaser video. It’s a bit dramatic and perhaps a bit over the top, but I liked it. Especially when it contains quotes like “This is Giro d’Italia, the toughest race in the world’s most beautiful place”.

You won’t actually learn anything about the 2013 Corsa Rosa but nevertheless it’s epic stuff and includes some great footage from the 2012 race. Team Sky and Mark Cavendish feature in it quite a bit, as do some of the more spectacular crashes from this year’s race, including Cavendish’s high-speed crash in Denmark on stage 2. There’s also some memorable moments such as the snow covered Passo dello Stelvio and Ryder Hesjedal’s victory in the final time trial in Milan.

Watch and enjoy the YouTube video below, if the footage doesn’t get you in the mood for next year’s race then the superb orchestral soundtrack is sure to. Don’t be suprised if it sounds familiar, it featured heavily in the London 2012 Olympic Games athletics finals.
