Giro d'Italia 2012 Stage 3: Racing Resumes On Monday

The third stage of teh 2012 Giro d'Italia is slated to begin on Monday. This stage is a flat one much like Sunday's Stage 2, and it's a bit shorter overall -- 190 kilometers. Visit this link for more particulars on the stage, including a map.

For the third stage the peloton has moved a bit to the east, to the town of Horsens. The stage will take place completely around this town, because not only the start and finish are located here, but along the stage the riders will also pass through and in the finale the riders even have to ride three local laps of over fourteen kilometres.
