Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

One week to go...

Tim @ Pelotonblog has posted a great review of the first two weeks racing and the impact that the ProTour has had on the race. Heading into the final week of the Giro, Savoldelli is holding a 25 second lead over Danilo DiLuca and 1 minute 48 seconds over Simoni. For Savoldelli, the rest day may have come at exactly the right time to let him fully recover before the tough final week. DiLuca continues to amaze me in his ability to hang in there - certainly not a one-day classics rider any more. In the mean time, Simoni has started the mind games claiming that he is going to win this year's race claiming that the Finestre on Saturday will be his launching pad. Given how things have gone over the past two weeks, I wouldn't be too keen on betting either way!
