Just another Saturday team ride

15 09 2008

During the 2008 Giro di Lago, the peloton was well-behaved until the initial foothills. While not really attacking the field, Mr. July set a blistering pace up the feared Cima Norway and rode Messrs. June and January off his wheel to summit alone, clinching the stage win. Mr. July proceeded to follow the wheels of the opportunists during subsequent stages, taking further time from the enemy on climbs and nimbly following the fast wheels in the sprints. When the cleats were finally hung up, Mr. July retained the coveted leader’s blue jersey, with Mr. June securing the sprint title. Also of note, Mr. Yaegerschnitzel earned the distinction of the only rider during this year’s Giro to maim a rat.
