2013 Roma Maxima, ex-Giro del Lazio, March 3

For the second time recently RCS Sports has changed a race name. First, the Giro del Lombardia became Il Lombardia. Now the Giro del Lazio becomes the Roma Maxima. Me, I like the traditional names.

The 2013 Roma Maxima (ex-Giro del Lazio) will be held March 3. The 180 km race will start at the  Fori Imperiali of Rome after which the riders will face the climbs of Rocca Massima, Rocca Priora and Campi di Annibale, and also a few km of the Appia Antica before arriving at the finish in Via dei Fori Imperiali. Should make for stunning photography of a bike race.
