Giro D’Italia

Leave a comment

Today two friends and i went to the start of the Giro d’Italia in Apeldoorn, a city about 100km from where i live. As it was great weather, it was pretty busy in the city. At the start there is a Velodrome where the riders were to start. Before that we strolled through the parking lot where the buses of the various themes were standing. Saw a lot of riders and we then checked the start from the inside.

We then checked a bit of the course before we went to the city to find a bit of comfort and shade. Altogether a very nice event to watch and due to the great weather it was actually very crowded. Great crowd and great fun! And to top it of for the dutchies, a Dutch rider named Tom Dumoulin managed to win the prologue by no less than 2 hundreds of a second and may now ride in the pink jersey.

I leave you with a few shots of the day.
