More Giro d‚Italia Femminile News
(coutresy Giro press service)

Back at sea level today (July 12th). The sun is peeking out from the clouds and it‚s getting hotter. The race just started. The papers today are full of the news of the "unfairness" of the climbs and courses custom-designed for Fabiana. In any case, she's still pretty incredible as a rider. Without Jackson, the Giro wouldn't have been as contested....
