Friends Along the Way
This is one of the many reasons that I love the Giro d'Italia, Felline knew that he had friends up the road, so he jumped out of the peleton looking like he was going on an attack to catch up to the break away. The next time the TV Moto catches him in the lens, he is hugging two friends along the side of the course. Once the peleton caught back up to him, he kissed the cheeks of his friends jumped back on the bike and got on with the race at hand. The first time I watched the Giro, it was the birthday of a rider in the peleton and they were going to ride through his home town. He rode ahead and joined a party on the side of the course. When the peleton arrived, he handed out pastries to the riders, as they got back to riding they took the trays of desserts with them, making sure everyone had a treat. When they got to the end of town, they passed the trays to fans and got back to the hard task of the Giro.
