|Anyone read or watch the Giro coverage today? It seems our diminutive American cyclist in the Giro really held his own today in the mountains. He went over the top of the first big climb of the day in a very select group of Garzelli, Simoni, Casagrande, and Bettini. He then managed to hold on for a ninth place finish despite a crash on the descent. Woohoo, go America in the Giro!
Garzelli also gave Hamilton some major respect before the stage even started: "I am also wary of Hamilton, who seems to be in great condition." However, Garzelli hasn't showed that he really needs to be afraid of anyone yet...
