The Giro d’Italia began its northward journey on Friday with a stage to L’Aquila in the mountains of Abruzzo, ten years after one of Italy’s worst ever earthquakes ravaged the region and the day’s finish-town in particular.
Having been abandoned by Lionel, Daniel Friebe rounds up the cream of the Giro’s international press pack to dissect the day’s action, which culminated in a stage victory for Pello Bilbao of Astana. Meanwhile, the overnight leader, Valerio Conti, overcame a few nervous moments to preserve his lead on the overall standings.
There are interviews with local boy Dario Cataldo, one of the stars of the stage, Davide Formolo, and of course our near-daily update from the inimitable Gianni Savio, manager of the Androni Giocattoli - Sidermec team.
