Holding Them Off
Most everyone was surprised to see the young Italian, Davide Formolo (Cannondale Garmin), hold off some very experience riders on the final climb of Stage 4 into Le Spezia. Apparently, he proved his abilities last year when he finished just behind Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) in the Italian National Road Racing Championships. Spoiler alert, Formolo kept the entire peloton at bay taking a solo victory on the streets of Le Spezia 22 seconds ahead of the head of the rest of the field. Behind Formolo, you can see one of the neutral service vehicles sponsored by Vittoria. Vittoria is a very familiar logo having donned many of the tires on my road bikes over the years.
