    The Giro d'Italia 2010 route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the route and time schedule

    Originally published on Saturday 8 May 2010 at 0.10AM, regularly updated with new stages and finished including the possibility to download the route in Google Earth on 20 May 2010
    Today, Saturday 8 May 2010, the Giro d'Italia 2010 will start from Amsterdam in The Netherlands. La Corsa Rosa will stay in The Netherlands for three days with each of the stages starting in Amsterdam.
    The Tour of Italy 2010 will finish in Verona on Sunday 30 May.

    Unfortunately a bit later than planned, you can now discover the Giro d'Italia 2010 route on Google Maps/Google Earth, together with the the time- and route schedules and the stage profiles.

    The Giro d'Italia 2010 in a few words

    After a 8,4 kilometer time trial in Amsterdam, two other stages will start in Amsterdam: one towards Utrecht and one towards Middelburg in Zealand, the province which will also be visited during the Tour de France 2010. These stages will be followed by the first rest day with the transfer to Italy where a team time trial will be organised between Savigliano and Cuneo.

    After this typical start, 11 stages in line are programmed: 4 plain stages, 4 hilly stages and 3 high mountain stages. After the second rest day the climb from San Vigilio di Marebbe to the Plan de Corones / Kronplatz will be done as individual time trial before a hilly stage, a plain stage and two high mountain stages. The Giro 2010 finishes as usual with an individual time trial, this time in Verona over 15,3 kilometers.

    In 3418 kilomètres the riders will have climbed the Monte Terminillo (16,1 km with a 1172 meter height difference and an average climb of 7,3% with a 12% part maximum), the very difficult Monte Zoncolan (10,1 km with a 1200 meter height difference and an average climb of 11,9% with 22% maximum), the Passo del Mortirolo (12,8 km with a 1317 meter height difference and an average slope of 10,3% and 18% maximum) and finally the impressive Passo di Gavia (Cima Coppi, the roof top of the Giro at 2618 meters; a 24,9 km climb with a 1399 meter height difference and a 5,6% gradient with 14% maximum).

    5 of the Giro's stages will have a mountain top finish.

    01/ Saturday 8 May 2010 - individual time trial - Amsterdam > Amsterdam - 8.4 km

    The very first stage will be an individual time trial connecting the Museumplein with the Stadionplein over a distance of 8.4 km and with a completely flat track.

    The first rider will start at 2PM and the last rider should have finished the 8.4 kilometers at about 5.45PM. At that time we'll know who will be the first rider to wear the pink leader's jersey. You can check out the start order and -times for this individual time trial here.

    The second stage, first stage in line, will also start in Amsterdam and will visit the capital of Dutch television before entering a loop around Soesterberg, Driebergen, Amerongen, Rhenen, Wijk bij Duurstede, Houten and finally a loop around the finish city, Utrecht.

    The organisation managed to find two places in this stage where the first points for the king of the mountain classification will be awarded: in the Kaapse Bossen in the Amerongse Bos between Elst and Veenendaal.
    The feed zone will be in Leersum while the very first intermediate sprint of this Giro will be in Houten.

    03/ Monday 10 May 2010 - Amsterdam > Middelburg - 224 km

    The third stage starting in Amsterdam will go to Middelburg and is the last stage in The Netherlands.

    With a completely flat track, the only difficulty the riders have to cope with is probably ... the wind! Indeed, after a visit to Rotterdam - where the Tour de France 2010 starts - this stage will follow - just like the first stage of its French brother - the coast line of the Zealand province and the wind will most probably lead to the creation of several groups in the peloton.

    One sprint is planned in this stage, on the Afrikaweg in Zoetermeer and the feed zone is on the Stationsweg in Zuidland.

    The fourth stage is the first stage in Italy and will be the second time trial of this 93rd edition of the Tour of Italy, this time it's a team time trial.

    This collective effort will be done on a relatively flat route between the Piazza Santarosa in Savigliano and a city which is used to receive the Tour of Italy, Cuneo, where the finish line will be drawn on the Corso Nizza. The route is almost a straight line south over 33 kilometers.

    07/ Saturday 15 May 2010 - Carrara > Montalcino - 222 km

    The start of the second hilly stage will also be in Carrara for a relatively flat stage start until kilometer 106 where the climb of the Volterra (altitude : 532 m, maximum gradient of 9% for an average of 4.7%) starts. The riders will than arrive in the more hilly half of the stage with after the Volterra the climbs of the Passo del Rospatoio (467 m, maximum gradient of 10% for an average of 4.7%) and the Poggio Civitella (585 m, maximum gradient of 16% for an average of 3.7%). A few kilometers after the top of the last one, the finish line will be painted on the road in Montalcino.

    For this stage, the feeding zone is in Roncolla and the intermediate sprint in Murlo.

    UPDATE: due to falling rocks in Volterra, the first climb of the day at 117 kilometers from the start, the route of this stage has been slightly modified.

    When the riders arrive at kilometer 102, the race continues directly to Roncolla (on the SR.439dir where the feeding zone is), without visiting Volterra. There will thus be no points to win for the King of the Mountains classification at that point since the top of the 3rd category climb will not be visited. From Roncolla the riders will continue on the initial route and the stage is thus reduced from 222 to 220 kilometer.

    This change is correctly reflected in the time- and route schedule below but not in the stage profile and on the map.

    At the end of the first week, the climbers will finally get what they're waiting for with the first high mountain stage. However, they will really be happy only at the end of the stage, since after the start from the thermal city Chianciano Terme - apart from the Valico di Monte Nibbio (altitude : 544 m, maximum slope of 8% for an average of 3%) and the climb of Marmore (368 m, maximum slope of 9% for an average of 2.5%) - they will especially be interested by the climb to the mountain top finish at the top of the Monte Terminillo (1668 m).

    20/ Saturday 29 May 2010 - Bormio > Ponte di Legno - Tonale - 178 km

    For this last high mountain stage, the Giro organisors will not spare the riders who have managed to get there. Indeed, with a circuit around the start city, Bormio, and a short visit to Switzerland, they managed to get one big and two smaller climbs in the circuit: first of all the climb of the Forcola di Livigno over 18 kilometers and a 1278 meter height difference (altitude : 2315 m, average slope: 7,1%, maximum slope: 13%) before the continuous climb of the smaller Passo di Eira (2211 m) and Passo di Foscagno (2291 m). After the descent to the start city Bormio, the climb to the rooftop of this Tour of Italy (Cima Coppi) starts, the Passo di Gavia over 24,9 kilometers and with its top at 2618 meters altitude. The height difference of this climb is 1399 meters and it thus has an average slope of 5,6% with a maximum slope at 14%. After the descent it's not yet finished because the riders will continue with the final climb of 11 kilometers to the mountain top finish at the Passo del Tonale (altitude : 1883 m, height difference 631 m, average slope 5,7% with a bit at 10%).

    The Giro d'Italia 2010 route in Google Earth

    You have now discovered all details of the different stages of this 93rd edition of the Giro d'Italia, including the time- and route schedules, the stage profiles and the route on Google Maps for each of the stages.

    If you would like to see the full route of the Giro d'Italia 2010, you can download the file below and open it in Google Earth.
    > Download the Giro d'Italia 2010 route in Google Earth

    This file will not only allow you to see the full route in Google Earth, but also to do a virtual fly-over over the route of one or more of the stages. To do so, you can of course use the default settings of Google Earth, but if you want to do a fly-over which really gives you the idea you were on your bike riding on the roads of the Giro d'Italia 2010, I recommend you the following settings: in the menu Tools > Options choose the tab Touring and fill in the following choices on that tab:
    - Camera tilt angle : 80.0 degrees
    - Camera range : 150.0 meters
    - Speed : 500.0 (if this makes you feel dizzy or if your computer or Internet connection don't allow you to get clear images with these settings, you can try lowering the speed)
