Although Movico will be on the road for RCS Sport - organiser of the Giro d'Italia amongst others races - for the 11th consecutive year, it is only the 3rd time that the “Big Start” takes place in the Netherlands. Once the race has passed through Apeldoorn, Nijmegen and Arnhem, Movico will also stand ready at the Italian stages with a 2nd convoy.


At the departure locations of the Dutch stages, Movico will appear at the start with a hospitality unit for the reception of VIP guests and a stage for the presentation of the cyclists and the signing of the start list.
The finish locations will be equipped with an accommodation for the press, in order to facilitate the live reporting of the stages on radio and TV, the finish arch and the ceremony stage, a facility for doping control, 4 large grandstands for guests of the organisation, and a 3-storey hospitality unit for VIP guests.

Parallel to the Big Start, a press tribune and two hospitality units will depart for southern Italy, to subsequently be present at the 18 Italian finish locations.

Starting this week, part of the Movico fleet will gradually display the characteristic pink colour. Follow us on social media for photos of this metamorphosis, and of course coverage of the stages!
