Discussions started on Prague start for Giro D’Italia

Václav Klaus junior, the son of the former Czech president of the same name, says he is discussing the chances of Italy’s flagship cycling race, the Giro D’Italia, starting in Prague. Klaus, a cycling fanatic, says he has started discussions about the possibility of a Prague start in 2017 or 2018 with the director of the race, Mauro Vegni. He said he will now consult with cities and towns to see whether the necessary funds could be raised. The Giro often now starts abroad, in 2014, for example, it began in Ireland.
