The Race is On
Giro d'Italia. It is a long distance professional bike race that is three weeks long. It started in Venice and ended today in Rome with a 14.4 kilometer route. We had no idea that this was going to happen today and were shocked to see the huge crowds and the roads blocked off for the bikers. It was impossible to get anywhere and the people in the crowds were cheering loudly for their favorite bikers. There was a TV set up near the Colosseum to show the bikers in other parts of the city. Today the winner was Denis Menchov!
