The Consortium Melinda prolongued for the fourth year in a row its partnership with the Tour of the Alps, the Euroregional pro’ stage race organized by G.S. Alto Garda scheduled from April 20th to 24th, 2020, with start in Brixen/Bressanone (South- Tyrol) and the grand finale in Riva del Garda (Trentino).

Also this year, Melinda logo will be proudly displayed on the GC leader jersey of the Tour of the Alps, conquered by Geraint Thomas (2017), Thibaut Pinot (2018) and Pavel Sivakov (2019) so far, looking forward another world-class champion to be crowned after five exciting stages crossing Tirol, South-Tyrol and Trentino.
“The Tour of the Alps earned an impressive media success year by year and we are delighted to continue this successful collaboration – Michele Odorizzi, the Consortium Melinda’s President explained – welcoming in our territories s one of the most fascinating stage races in Europe”.
