The first Monday of the Giro d’Italia is still a Monday. It is too early for a rest day as the Corsa Rosa has just begun and with fights to win jerseys already breaking out and intermediate sprints. Straight from the race in Italy, home of good food and art, the Sidi team will explain the beauty of the toughest race in the world in the most beautiful country in the world in just a few minutes. Just in time for a coffee.
