Barbara Pedrotti, Voice and Beauty at the Giro d'Italia

Dear Barbara,

I know that as a young girl you dreamed of becoming Miss Italy. I know that you then fell in love with cycling and now you are the finish line voice of the Giro d'Italia.

Thank you for the photographs, please send more and I will add them to this collection.

  1. Best blog entry ever. Keep 'em coming.

  2. Barbara's more than just a pretty face - she does a good job with the announcing chores at the races. We've heard her live at the Strada Bianca, MSR and Giro the past few years and while she's got a way to go to equal the classic announcers of back-in-the-day, she's got 'em all beat in the beauty category....just perfect for ITALIA!

  3. Nice Photos, she is a real beauty. Does she ride too?
