Denis Menchov at the 2010 Grio d'Italia presentaion

The route of the 2010 Giro d'Italia was officially presented in Milan on Saturday afternoon. The race begins in Holland, and includes a team time trial after returning to Italy, ending with a tough week in the Dolomites and Italian Alps before a final time trial to Verona.

Just like this year's Vuelta a Espana and next year's Tour de France, the Giro has grabbed the money offered by Amsterdam and Holland and will spend the first three days in the Netherlands before transferring back to Italy.
