We are pleased to announce that once again Eros Poli will join us port part of our tour. In the words of one of our guests from last year's trip. " Of course you cannot overstate Eros . He was Mario Chippolini's lead out man, rode 9 Tours,7 Giro's and 2 Vuelta's and it is just about worth going on the trip for him alone--he is fairdinkum a LEGEND in Italy and a laugh a minute".

Testimonial: Richard Mullaly commenting on Cousins Tours & Travel Giro tour with Eros 2012

The team that Eros Poli has assembled are awesome. All are gun riders and expert mechanics; all are fluent in English and Italian. Their empathy with the tour group is a real plus – nothing is too much trouble, and no rider no matter what their level, is left out. Their dedication to the group’s bikes is shaded only by their focus on the tour group; no squeak, no rattle is left untreated
There is always someone in the van, a rider up the front and (for me) always one bringing up the rear. The guides are experienced and know the routes well, as they live in the area and the tour rides are their local rides.
Through his innumerable cycling connections, Eros is able to open doors and facilitates access to all areas of the Giro start and finish – in Giro history, Eros is a legend. Access to the team buses through to accommodation in really comfortable hotels – everything is possible. His hosting of the group dinners is a highlight
I've done two Giro tours and this was so far superior it wasn’t funny. Highly recommended.
