According to Nick Mills, head judge and technical director, The success of the day was due to quality decision from the safety crew and a positive and professional response from the athletes. It was obviously less than ideal and replica cartier Must 21 Series Must 21 Chronogra watches potentially hazardous conditions for everyone, yet we managed to responsibly move around the mountain and have an epic day together in the hills.The competition will run through August 8, 2010. --Shauna SweeneyPhotos: Courtesy of Tony Harrington
Denis Menchov won his first Giro dItalia on Sunday in Rome. The Russian rider for the Dutch Rabobank team survived a crash on rain-slicked cobbles about 800 yards from the finish that probably cost him the stage victory, but an replica Omega 3835.74.34 Ladie's watch amazingly fast bike change from his support crew minimized his losses. Menchov actually managed to double his lead in the overall standings over second-placed Danilo DiLuca of Italy, who finished the three-week race 41 seconds behind Menchov. Thats the finish line at right, and it seems to sum up this whole race: tons of pink, horrible traffic, giant foam tea cups, and ancient ruins.
All very Italy.Stage honors for todays 14-kilometer time trial through Rome went to Cervélo Test Team rider Ignatus Konovalovas, who was one of the last riders to start today before a light rain made the mostly cobble-stone course almost unridable. Even team cars were sliding on the slick, oily stones. I had the chance today to ride in one of a replica Omega 3510.50 Men's Watch Cervélo team car behind Vladomir Gustov, who was unlucky to start just seconds after the rain began. Already the victim of one nasty crash at this Giro, Gustov went down twice today and finished the stage dead last.
