A few minutes before the peloton came, a strange character -
promoting a candidate of the
upcoming local elections
- reached the final straight on his bike...
... to the amusement of the crowd for sure.
Whether they'll vote for him or not,
is a whole
But shortly after it was the Red Army
that stormed into Milan with the
rest of the pack
and with Damiano Cunego and his Guard of Honour
And Alessandro Petacchi on their wheels
But the Sprinter Gentleman has his "Guard of Honour" too
Another pic featuring the two stars of the 87th Giro d'Italia:
Damiano Cunego on the left,
Ale-Jet on the right
The peloton riding in the Milan urban landscape
Who are these guys?
And who's this one?
More from the bunch in Milano's Corso Venezia street.
The man in the red-and-white chequered jersey
is Croatia's National Champion Radoslav Rogina (Tenax);
the man in blue on the right is Intergiro king
Raffaele Illiano (Selle Italia)
A Lampreman at the bottom of the peloton
With all the Panarias behind him, trying to regain the bunch
Our man Radoslav Rogina inside the bunch, one lap later
The Tenax guys displayed their fighting attitude also
the final day, with Slovene Dean Podgornik
going on a solo attack
... but the Fassas immediately took matters into their hands
and started the chase
To the delight of Petacchi, who had another winning sprint.
Here's Marco Velo starting the
leadout with 300m to go
