Yay for Giro!

Really, the scenery is just so lovely there in Italy this time of year, isn’t it?

With two mountain stages and a time trial left, Contador hold 1.21 over il Vecchio and .44 over Ricco. Savoldelli seems to think that there is room for attacking off the Vivione on Friday. He’ll no doubt go stage-chasing in his native Bergamo, and could well take a GC fave along for the ride. Then, there is the Gavia-Mortirolo. Last time the Giro climbed the Mortirolo, Basso and Simoni rode away from the field, leaving them all far, far, behind. This is Simoni territory for sure. But he’ll need time in hand to survive the final crono in Milano. This is what I love best about the Giro: Most years, it comes down to the final few days. That, and the scenery of course…

Oh, and have a look here for some cool photos from the Plan de Corones.
