The 2010 Giro d’Italia will begin with three stages in and around Amsterdam. The 93rd Giro will begin on 8 May 2010 with a prologue through the center of Amsterdam (boy, that should be fun!), followed by 2 stages that start in the city. On May 9, the stage ends in Utrecht which is more or less in the center of the Netherlands; and on May 10, the end of the stage is all the way down in the south, in Middelburg, a beautiful historic city in the province of Zeeland. On May 11 the riders fly to Italy. The Giro will announce the entire parcours in October.
