The four-day Giro del Trentino starts Wednesday with a super-flat 17.5km crono. Definitely one for the specialists, though it’s short enough for the climbers to survive. The rest of the race is all about mountains, anyway, so the climbers have plenty of chances for revenge.
The race orgs have posted some barely comprehensible interviews on youtube. They pretty much sound like the parents talking in a Peanuts cartoon. Basso says something about how hard the race is, the Giro is coming, Amstrong won’t be at Trentino, and the team is… tranquilo? Just guessing on that last one. It wouldn’t be a pre-race interview without some tranquilo in there somewhere.
I have a full preview up over at steephill.tv.
