It was another week in the Giro – there was an historic first maglia rosa, a lot of hair, a Giro donkey, and a little kangaroo who could. Over in California, we had pirates, cookies and Cav.
A Movistarlet’s close-up
That Andrey Amador is a VeloVoices favourite so we raided the drinks trolley when he became the first Costa Rican rider to ever wear the maglia rosa. I’m just going to show you a bunch of pictures now.
