Giro D’Italia 2018 – Stage 08


Sorry for the delay in sending updates but I had some personal issues over the last week-end (i even had to wear a suit and tie…)

Stage 8 was won by a young Equadorian “Carapaz” on a climb that in the recent years had seen the light of Di Luca and Cunego

Froome splipped on wet with 5 kms to go but was able to come back


None of our teams had Carapaz, so we had team score few points today

Again we saw a hand in hand victory by Edward Caley and Giacomo Salmoiraghi


we have anoter couple at the top of the Giro. Alessio Ciardi and Atletico lasonil


Bands of Brothers

Speaking about brothers/couples we have this year two band of brothers:

Stefano Mandressi’s “MAS Memento Audere Semper” and Claudio Mandressi’s “PedaleMolle team” who are currently 5th and 6th separated by only 7 points

And we have Davide Guarisco’s “Dark Polo Team” and Matteo Guarisco’s “Mucelio’s Pro”. These two are further down the list with Davide 103 points ahead of Matteo. Davide has won the mountain stage today

The competition is tough here with 4 teams in 19 points. Massimiliano Cividini is the new Black Jersey

  • Massimiliano Cividini’s “Coppa cobram”
  • Alessandro Mariani’s “VanPoppeDaPaura”
