La Corsa Rosa is here!

Giro d'Italia 2018

Finally, after the Israel (mis)adventure, which to us was little more than a money-grab by RCS, La Corsa Rosa returns to home soil.

The riders and staff flew from Israel to Sicily (Catania, less than an hour from us here in Siracusa) this morning. Where they are shaking their legs out on the bikes in or near Catania is an interesting question, but they leave there tomorrow headed for Caltigirone.

The race passes close to us in Sortino, the lunch stop for our 2017 Sublime Sicily Tour. We'll ride the same route out there ourselves tomorrow to see the race, so the next blog post should have photos and details of the Giro's return to La Bella Italia.

Thursday's the stage finish atop Mt. Etna. We have a car rented to go up and see that one!

Forza Aru!            Forza Pozzovivo!

  1. In addition to Sortino, that day's Giro route passed through a number of locations from the 2017 Sublime Sicily Tour: Vizzini, Monterosso Almo, and Palazzolo Acreide. What took us a few days the pros accomplished in a few hours, but we had more meals and vino to enjoy...
