Amateur cyclist and fan Fernando Alonso on Tuesday will take part in the sixteenth stage of the famous Giro d'Italia grand tour.

The Ferrari driver has been invited to enjoy the 12.9 kilometre mountain individual time trial between San Vigilio di Marebbe and Plan de Corones.

The 28-year-old will "enjoy the Giro on the crucial final moments of the stage", the organisers confirmed.

Alonso confirmed last year he would like to set up a professional cycling team, perhaps with a project involving top Spanish rider and friend Alberto Contador.
