Let's cheer for Primož Roglič together!

Primož Roglič, the ambassador of Slovenian tourism, is one of the main favourites to win the pink jersey, the highest prize of the Giro D'Italia, considered one of the three biggest cycling events in the world.  On 27 May, the race will also take place in the immediate vicinity of Slovenia.

On 27 May, the penultimate stage of Giro D'Italia will take place in the immediate vicinity of Slovenia, which is why organisers are expecting a large number of Slovenian and foreign Primož Roglič fans. The "Let's Go Primož" charity fan caravan will also provide a great atmosphere for the fans and you are kindly invited to join it.

Roglič's outstanding performance at Giro D'Italia has once again brought many Slovenian and foreign cycling enthusiasts to their feet. The penultimate stage of the Italian peloton will stop in the vicinity of Kranjska Gora, where one of the most high-profile stages will take place with the climb to Monte Santo di Lussari. The "Let's Go Primož" charity fan caravan, which will cheer for Roglič on 27 May 2023, is also supported by the Slovenian Tourist Board in partnership with the organisers of the campaign - the Slovenian Olympic Committee, the Primož Roglič Foundation and the Miroslav Cerar Foundation.

Primož Roglič is the ambassador of the Miroslav Cerar Foundation. It was established in 2015 by the Slovenian Olympic Committee to raise funds for young promising athletes from socially disadvantaged families. By donating to the "Let's Go Primož" cycling campaign, you can help children from socially disadvantaged families with a minimum donation of €10 and receive a thank-you gift including fan and sporting props for your cycling exploits.

From all the donors who will help the charity campaign until 27 May 2023, the organisers will draw four lucky winners who will receive special prizes with Primož's autograph, including a cycling jersey. There will also be a prize for the highest donation and the 1000th donor, and special thanks will be given to those who donate €25, €50 or more. With just a few clicks you can take part in the charity campaign. The website is in Slovenian, but you can still participate.

Let's cheer for Primož together!

The organisers are encouraging fans to cycle from Kranjska Gora along the cycle path from Mojstrana to Tarvisio for the penultimate stage of the Giro. On the day of the event, there will be a collection point for the gifts to donators at the Ledine car park in Rateče. It is also possible to collect the gifts by post or in person in Ljubljana. Due to the limited number of tickets for the finish of the stage, the organisers recommend that fans cycle to Tarvision, watch the start of the stage in the city centre and watch the stage on the big screens. Afterwards, the cycling caravan will return to Tarvisio for the award ceremony.
