2009 Giro d'Italia Route, Rumors

The 2009 Giro d'Italia is rumored to be finishing in Rome, on May 31st, rather than in Milan. The race route will be unveiled on Saturday.

The 100th anniversary (1909-2009) of the race is expected to be a real battle with 5 ex-Giro champions (Gilberto Simoni, Ivan Basso, Danilo Di Luca, Damiano Cunego and Denis Menchov), and Lance Armstrong (racing in his first Giro) participating.
