DiLuca wins Giro d'Italia


No time to wait the end of the race to drink champagne

The last few days were just formalities for Danilo DiLuca but were still important for the remaining spots on the podium. While Andy Schleck was only a few seconds ahead of Gilberto Simoni before the time trial, he was expected to do better against the clock and thus, keeping his second place overall. He did. Gibo and Cunego had to fight for the third step but they both failed as a surprisingly fast Eddy Mazzoleni (husband of Elisa Basso, Ivan's sister who's under investigation for doping traffic or something) smoked both small climbers by minutes to take the last podium place in Milano, sending Simoni in 4th and Cunego in 5th.



You may have noticed a new Cannondale TT bike saturday. The new Slice carbon frame, more info on it can be found here.
