Giro D’Italia 201310th May 2013
Similar to Tour de France, the leader of Giro d’Italia wears the ‘magnolia rosa’ (pink jersey). Introduced in 1931, the jersey is the colour of the paper La Gazetta dello Sport printed on!
British cycling hero Mark Cavendish won the first stage this year on 4th May and has gone on to win the 6th stage on 9th May. Cavendish dedicated his second win to Belgian cyclist Wouter Weylandt who tragically died in a crash two years ago during the 3rd stage. The two wins are not only a huge achievement for him, but also a fantastic step in promoting cycling and bringing the Giro d’Italia to the attention of British public.
We wish all of the riders well for the remaining stages.
