What do I love most about Italy’s Giro? The vivid colours that sweep past and almost catch you off balance as you try desperately to swivel & stay with the leaders but[t] end with a view of spandex clad lean bottoms.
Just like a rainbow, one minute it’s there in vivid glory the next the street is empty, as the crowd shifts down a gear, triumphant that they saw Italy’s speediest act of ‘passione’; the advertising hoardings are dismantled and put on trucks ready for their equally short tv slot on tomorrow’s tappa…
Congratulations to the UK’s Mark Cavendish who won the Termoli-Teramo Stage + good luck to all for tomorrow!
