Civitella climb (dirt/mud)
Cadel shows how it's done...on EVERY surface. A dirt, well mud really, climb and then a finish through the town on the cobbles...are you kidding? The cheese eating surrender monkeys that put the Tour together don't have that much imagination.
I know the word 'EPIC' gets batted around a lot...too much really, but Stage 7 of the 2010 Giro was EPIC!!!!! It's a rare thing when the fittest men on the planet come across the line and look like hammered shit! Just watch the videos. If you don't agree, take up tennis!
There were 5 parts total of video...the bits I've posted are 4 and 5.
Here are #1, #2 and #3...the Civitella starts in part 2 and continues through part 5.
Did the TdM this morning with Il Prof. It was big fun. Good front group of 10 guys that stayed together until @ the 100km point. Il Prof was starting to come apart, so I sat up with him and we rolled in. It was worth the trip out to God's country. I wanted some miles, some sun and a good time...I was not let down!
