Finally we are back on the roads of the Giro D’Italia
Jay Hindley, the winner of last year, is not running
Number 1 is therefore reassigned to the reigning World Champion Remco Evenepoel.
And Remco takes the stage victory and the first pink jersey, ahead of Ganna and Almeida
Only Girardengo, Binda, Merckx and Bugno took the jersey on stage 1 and brought it to the end. Can Remco take this record too with the world champion jersey and the belgian TT jersey also ?
The last time this happened was when Gianni Bugno won his giro in 1990 and this was the year when i started following cycling. 13 years later the Fantasy Giro was born and this is the 21st time we run it
21 times i do this…. i am getting old
Edward Caley’s Cyclepathic wins the stage with a mirable 117 points. this is what we call “filotto”: 1st, 2nd 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th (and also 9th, 10th, 12th 13th). @Edward, please add in the comment the translation of Filotto
Second by just 2 points Andrea Quercioli’s Quercia is Back with 115 points. almost a Filotto for you (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th,7th, 8th, 9th, 10th). This is 9 out of 10. How do you say this is “toscanese”?
Third is a Triplete: Marco Nesi’s Terapia Tapioca Team, claudio Mandressi’s Pedalemolle Team and Jeroen Vandeput’s Molteni. You had a lot of these also.
Can you keep the pace of Remco?
Stage 1 is won by a bunch of 32 riders…. i won’t list this… it’s too much
Let’s see when the real mountains come
