Having watched Il Lombardia on Sunday, our friend Nathalie Novembrini headed to the Giro d’Italia presentation on Monday. Here are her thoughts on the occasion.
Just like every year, many rumours preceded Monday’s Giro presentation. Some of the host towns were already known but the only certainty was the 98th edition of Giro d’Italia would start in San Remo and finish in Milan. Maybe the RCS management did it on purpose, maybe it’s only a coincidence, but the start and finish remind me of an inverted Classicissima (Milan-San Remo).
