60th Giro della Provincia di Reggio-Challenge Calabria

De Rosa, just making their debut as a sponsor this year, must have been very pleased with the overall race victory of the De Rosa-Stac Plastic team. The GC winner was Matteo Montaguti.

Alessandro Petacchi (Lampre-Farnese Vini) demonstrated that he was in very good form as he aims for Milan-Sanremo by winning two sprint stages, the earliest victories in a season which he has ever had.

  1. Yippee! The racing season has begun! Sunday is the GP Etruschi. We hope to get out and see Tirreno-Adriatico which should be sort of close to us here in Viterbo. We'll rent a car to drive up and see l'Eroica and later Milano-San Remo. It's wonderful to see the riders in their new kits and on their new bikes as the season begins -- now we just need it to warm up a bit!
