  1. We loved visiting Sardegna and will return in June for Sardegna Coast to Coast to Coast
    riding on some of the same routes as the race. We still have a few places available if you'd like to join us.

  2. Damiano Cunego had a good stage yesterday (stage 2). It was a hilly finish and he was battling neck and neck till the last few meters. Lovely fir-covered mountains in the later part of the stage- very pretty.
