Round Italy race may start in Amsterdam

The Giro d’Italia cycling race may start off in Amsterdam next year, the city council said on Monday.

If it goes ahead, it will be the third start of a major cycling event in the country within one year. The Giro di Spagna starts in Assen at the end of August and the Tour de France kicks off in Rotterdam in July 2010.
