Leading It Off G17-1
Just two kilometers in to the 100th Giro d'Italia a six man group got away from the peloton, eventually opening up a seven minute lead. On the front of the group is Micro Maestri (Bardiani CSF) follow by Pavel Brutt (Gaxprom-Rusvelo). Bardiani CSF had two of its team pulled from the race before the wheels rolled due to a positive blood sample, it will end up being one of the many stories of this year's Giro. Hopefully we will spend more time focusing on racing and the beauty of the sport, than on those that try to get an extra edge.
