Online PR News – 16-July-2010 – – United Kingdom, London- 15th July 2010 -- As some of the biggest names in cycling today prepare to head to the Netherlands for the opening three stages of the 93rd edition of the Giro d'Italia, the travel experts at MyAmsterdam.co.uk recommend fans book their Amsterdam hotels early.
As one of cycling's grand tours, the Giro d'Italia is an important race that draws participants from all over the world to compete. This year's event starts in Amsterdam on May 8 and remains in the Netherlands for two more stages. The race moves to Italy on May 12 with the first leg of Italian competition taking place on a course that runs from Savigliano to Cuneo. It eventually wraps up May 30 in Verona, Italy, after racers take part in 21 different stages in total.
The event typically has more than 200 participants, many of who are famed in the sport. Cycling greats Lance Armstrong, Alberto Contador and Denis Menchov have all taken part in the event in the past. This year's slate of cyclists has yet to be finalized, but fans can anticipate seeing some of the sport's biggest names. This event combines with the Tour de France and the Tour of Spain to make up the Grand Tours for racers worldwide.
With more than 4 million tourists making their way to the Dutch capital yearly, the earlier reservations are made for big events, the better, travel experts at MyAmsterdam.co.uk say. The first leg of the Giro d'Italia begins at the world famous Van Gogh Museum and winds its way through the capital city on a brief 8.4 kilometer course. The second stage of the race picks up again in Amsterdam, but runs a grueling 209-kilometer course to Utrecht. The final leg of the tour's stay in the Netherlands begins in Amsterdam and runs 224 kilometers on a flat course to Middelburg.
With all three stages of the Dutch portion of Giro d'Italia starting in Amsterdam, hotels within the capital city will provide spectators the best vantage point for viewing the event. Amsterdam hotels are still available for the May 8-10 stay of the tour, but experts at MyAmsterdam.co.uk recommend securing reservations soon to ensure booking along the cycling routes.
