Giro di Francia 2011?
Rumors are flying about the route for 2011's version of the big race in France where the leader wears a yellow shirt. Some are saying the race will visit Italy! The dates being talked about fit nicely at the end of our season since Legendary Climbs EAST guests go home July 14. We're very familiar with the roads in the area the rumors are about, Pinerolo and Sestriere and if it turns out to be true, CycleItalia may offer a special tour to these areas to see "Le Beeg Shew" up close, as we have other times when the race entered Italy. We'll know more next week. Meanwhile, tomorrow's the final pro race of the season, Tour of Lombardy. We'll be watching it live on the 'net via Universal Sports.
