What a great Centennial Giro d’Italia it has been. The Corsa Rosa always promises drama and beauty and this race has proven to be no different. Filled with sub-plots and individual tragedies as well as unbelievable individual and team accomplishments – it also seemed to herald the arrival of a changing of the guard at the very top of our favorite sport with many new names making huge entries into the Giro’s illustrious history books.
As the final Maglia Rosa is draped over the shoulders of its well-deserving champion, I’ll have to control the urge to look forward to the 101st edition – and just savior the moment, like a fine Chianti.
Thanks for following my ramblings yet again this year and sharing your insights as well. Ciao Bella!
Stage 21: Monza National Raceway - Piazza Duomo (Milano), 29.3km
And the last shall be first…not.
Starting from the world famous Monza Autodromo, this ITT is going to be an amazingly fast downhill affair. The last man to ride into the Piazza Duomo will be wearing a pink skinsuit, but will not ascend to the top of the podium to a shower of prosecco and pink confetti, that honor will go to the races best ITTer. The 100th Giro d’Italia will have fulfilled its promise yet again.
My Call: The Netherlands will exchange orange for pink – at least for this evening.
