This year’s Tour of Italy has begun. The famous cycling tour is called “Giro d’Italia”. It is one of the most important stage races and, to me, the most fascinating in the world! It usually takes place in May. This year as many as 23 teams are partecipating with nine riders for each of them.
Usually, the victory of this important event goes to the one who wins the hardest uphill, in fact, it’s always the Dolomites which decide the winner 😉 The prize for each race is a pink shirt.
I hope Nibali will win because he’s my favorite runner, although Wiggins will be hard to beat. I am happy because my parents will allow me to go and see them on the three peaks in Lavaredo.
