More Fun with Giro

Hmmm....lets have a looksee at today's Giro action shots, shall we?

Uhhh...huh? Why would anyone take, let alone post, a pic like this? Please tell me that's someone's elbow or ass and not someone's pointy head.

The melodrama of the day goes to Jan Ullrich who cut off his long locks because they made him sweaty. Besides making him less sweaty, cutting his hair symbolizes that party boy Jan is over for the season. He's all business now.

You know you're a small dude, when you ride next to Bettini and you make him look like a giant. Damn Bettini, he always looks like the cat that ate the canary. Worth a second look by the way, are Bettini's golden slippers.

Today's photogenic peloton shot is this. I know, but it was the best I could find. You will have to wait until the Giro leaves Belgium and actually enters Italy before we find pretty sunshiney shots.

And here we have the hands down (or is it thumbs up?) winner of the cheesy rock star photo of the day. There are at least 8 things in this photo that I could blather on about. Instead, I will let you look at it and relish in its cheesiness.

The finish photo of the day. I must say, I do like the sprint finish photos. All the men in their full peacock struttiness. Plumage galore.

And finally, I scoured the net for a good photo of the day of Basso. This was all I could find. Hardly worthy of our high BB standards. So I am opting for the photo of Basso that appeared in an ad on the Giro coverage for today instead. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do after all.

I think they should have had a live report on the rest day action.
