Races in Paris and Italy in June(4 posts)

Races in Paris and Italy in JuneSpecialTater

My wife and I are headed to Paris (2 days) and Italy (Tuscany) (7 days) June 5-16. Not taking my bike, but may hopefully rent one. Would love any tips on that, but my main question relates to watching a race.

It appears there are 4 in Italy while we are there.

Coppa della Pace--8 June
Trofeo Riviera Della Versilia--8 June (in Massarossa, Tuscany--nearby)
Giro Ciclistico d'Italia Internazionale Under 26--12-22 June (Don't know where)
Coppa delle Nazioni - Memorial Fausto Coppi TT--14 June (Don't know where)

Of course we miss the Giro d'Italia and Paris-Robaix by a couple of days :(.

Can someone provide more details or a website that might provide more information? Googling doesn't provide much english language info (like the city or area).

Thanks in advance for any help.

This is the website of La Gazetta Dello Sport (the sponsor of the Giro-the newspaper is also pink-and the daily sporting newspaper of Italy). They have a chat room, etc., at the site; maybe someone can help you out.

Tuscany will be great. I don't have info on where to find races but if you're wife will allow you check out Cycles Laurent in Paris. A cool pro shop where you can pick up some unique stuff.

It's about a block or two from the Place de la Republique on Avenue Voltaire. The closest metro stop is Oberkampf.

The website was down this morning but try typing cycles laurent into google and the link will come up...
