The Final Four G17-127
The last four members of the large early break crested the penultimate climb of the Passo di Pinei together. I went with this title (a mixed sports metaphor) because of the presence of two Americans, Tejay van Garderen (BMC) and Joe Dombrowski (Cannondale-Drapac). Joining them was the captain of CCC Sprandi Polkowice, Jan Hirt, and the Maglia Azzurro of Mikel Landa (Sky). Lining the road on the backside of the climb are the trucks that haul the fencing, banners and inflatables that demark the summit of every catagorized climbs. The Giro is a true traveling circus of cycling fun.
