Giro rest day

"REST" day at the Giro d'Italia because of weather issues. Only the third time in the race' history this has happened. 1969 and 1989 were the other times. I'll devote NO time to the moron who tested positive and made the news yesterday all about doping. Instead, here's a link to Bill and Carol McGann's "The Story of the Giro d'Italia" now available in audio form, perfect for those long drives in the car for summer vacations or to liven up a dull commute back and forth to your job. Larry pestered Bill for years to write a book about his favorite race and contributed piles of reference materials and helped with the final editing. Almost the encyclopedia of the Giro, but much more interesting to read or listen to!
