If you do not have cable, etc. and did not subscribe to the OLN internet coverage, and if you speak Italian, and if you live in a country which does not televise the race,
the Giro is available on Rai Click TV.

"Le tappe" is a segment previewing each stage.
"Prima Tappa"; "Seconda Tappa", etc. is the coverage of the stage.
"T Giro" is a wrap-up of each stage.

The coverage is good; the commentary of Davide Cassani, Auro Bulbarelli and Silvio Martinello is excellent; and the wrap-up analysis with Gigi Sgarbozza and various guests is fun.

And, of course, Paolo Belli. E' Un Gran Bel Giro....!

Enjoy!

As far as the start times, they usually vary between 10:00/11:00 (in Italy).

Neat site. I like the rerun of the post race commentaries. I have no idea what theyre saying, except for a few words, but it's interesting to find out how the racers sound and how they carry themselves in interviews.

and that chick sitting in the chair in the middle of the commentators' stand is smokin' hott...

Yes, the commentary/analysis/interviews are really good.

Luciana Francioli, a Brasilian model who after several years still can't put three phrases together, barely speaks any Italian and has terrible pronunciation.
I have no idea how she got this job.:rolleyes: :confused: :rolleyes:
