Congratulations to Gilberto Simoni...Francis

... the 2001 Giro d'Italia Champion.

Gilberto Simoni has won by 7:31 over Abraham Olano, the largest margin since 1973, when Eddy Merckx beat Johan De Muynck by 7:42.

Even the doping distraction is not enough to take the spotlight away from Simoni's beautiful performance!!

My two highlights are:
- Simoni's incredible defense of the pink jersey on the Stage 15 time trial.
- Simoni risking it all on with a 49k solo in the ugliest weather conditions on the mountains in Stage 20.

1. Allowing Perez to take the stage win after Simoni took the pink jersey.

2. Attacking on the last hilly stage to win a stage after he had the race in the bag.
