The cycling season is here

May 9, 2017

The new cycling season is in the spotlight with the beginning of the 2017 Giro d'Italia, one of the three Grand Tour races in the world, the other two being the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España. This year's edition of the Giro is also special, as the race celebrates its 100th anniversary. For that reason, we wanted to celebrate this event creating a pronunciation guide that our user could use to learn how to pronounce the names of the cyclists who are taking part in the race, as well as the names of the places that these cyclists will visit between the 5th and the 28th of May.

Check out the pronunciations on Forvo now!

We'll continue to add more, but in the meantime, is there a sporting event you'd like us to feature? What names do you find difficult to pronounce? Write to us at or tweet us @forvo with your ideas.
