The whispers and rumblings that the Giro d'Italia start for Washington D.C. next year may not be happening appear to have some merit. DR Sporten reports:
"DR Sporten erfarer, at Giro d'Italia starter i Herning i 2012.
Hernings borgmester Lars Krarup vil ikke bekræfte det. Men han siger, at der på et pressemøde i Horsens fredag vil blive annonceret, at en stor sportsbegivenhed kommer til Herning. Og det er ifølge DR Sportens oplysninger det store italienske cykelløb, der er tale om.
Noget kunne tyde på, at Horsens også bliver involveret i løbet, i og med det bliver offentliggjort der og ikke i Herning.
De midtjyske byer er blevet valgt frem for Washington DC og Monaco."
"DR Sport understands that the Giro d'Italia will start in Herning in 2012.
Herning Mayor Lars Krarup would not confirm it. But he says that at a news conference in Horsens tomorrow a major sporting event will be announced that is coming to Herning. And it is, according to DR Sport information, the major Italian bicycle race.
It would seem that Horsens also is involved in the race, with it being announced there and not in Herning.
The central Jutland cities have been chosen over Washington DC and Monaco."
Tomorrow is April Fool's day...let see what happens!
