Italy's Giro d'Italia

This is one of the top multi stage cycling races in the world. This years Giro will cover 3510kms' over 21 stages for the entire month of May. The race is rolling the 3rd stage just finishing and 196 riders surviving. Two Kiwi's are racing, Greg Henderson (17th on points so far) and Julian Dean (27th on points so far). The race will go into Holland and Switzerland in the process of racing through Italy. When they get to the mountains that's usually when the real interesting action happens. I hope Sky TV covers it!
Graham Watson is one of the photographers covering the race for American reporting. A couple of his pictures follow.
