The city of Gent, Belgium, hopes to get the official word today that it will host the finish of the fourth stage of the 2010 Giro d'Italia.

The 2010 Giro d'Italia will start in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The organisers will hold the first three stages in The Netherlands before moving south to Belgium.

"We still have no official confirmation," Christophe Peeters, head of Sport in Gent, said to Sporza.be. He discussed the proposal late last year at the Gent Six Day.

The finish would be on the Charles De Kerchovelaan, where the second stage of the 2007 Tour de France finished. (SW)
