Two Grand Tours in the UK in 2014 as the Giro will start in Belfast with a Prologue which could see a certain Knight of the realm swiftly back in the Maglia Rosa.

What a stupid thing to do. Another Gt ruined by this ridiculous obsession of traveling far far away for the start. It adds nothing to the race and brings forward the first rest day. Cycling needs to stop shooting itself in the head like this.

There does seem quite a distance between Ireland and Italy to justify this, i assume they'll get on planes but...

Italy with the best cycling terrain in the world wants to find roads in Ireland. Everybody wants to milk the Sky cow.

Great news that the giro is coming to Ireland. Over the past number of years cycling has enjoyed a boom in Ireland with many people taking up the sport. Once again we see plenty of jealous begrudgers out there!
