2007 Giro di Lombardia

While I was out playing yesterday in the Granfondo Italia the pros were out battling for a victory in the final classics race here, the 2007 Giro di Lombardia. Verona local Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Fondital) won the 101st edition of the race in a two up sprint against Riccardo Riccò (Saunier Duval-Prodir).

The race passes along beautiful Lake Como, has famous climbs such as the Madonna di Ghisallo, and finishes in the town of Como.

Cunego rides a special, special edition Wilier. Wilier, a Veneto region bicycle manufacturer, created the "Cento" model for its 100th anniversary. Furthermore, they created a special Damiano Cunego Cento (which is sold at Wilier dealers). The frame is white with exposed carbon and is easily identified by its curved top tube and its headtube which has a flat front. In addition, the frame has small graphics portraying key events in Cunego's life.
