The hostess on the right in the first pic has a beautiful bang (and she's beautiful too).

Concerning the winner I just hope it's not a Sky, these guys are worse than the emperor of dope L.A. and his USP team.

Re: 2013 Giro d'Italia: who will win the Maglia Rosa or Pink Jersey

Worse than the emperor of dope L.A? Why do you think Sky is so bad? Is your opinion same about Wiggins and Froome

I don't blame you. I was a huge follower of LA too. Trust me, I felt like he broke the trust. It really hurts when someone cheats big time

Re: 2013 Giro d'Italia: who will win the Maglia Rosa or Pink Jersey

German sprinter John Degenkolb bagged the fifth Stage





Luca Paolini keeps Maglia Rosa and Red Jersey

No change in General Classification post Stage 5; crash marred at the end (3 Km).

Re: 2013 Giro d'Italia: who will win the Maglia Rosa or Pink Jersey

6th Stage falls to Manx Missile aka Mark Cavendish



and re-takes Red Jersey




Luca Paolini keeps Maglia Rosa

After sixth stage, General Classification remains same. Today it might change...

Re: 2013 Giro d'Italia: who will win the Maglia Rosa or Pink Jersey

Mark Cavendish retains Points aka Red Jersey




After Stage 7, General Classification got rattled*

Benat Intxausti ~ 28h 30' 04"
Vincenzo Nibali + 5"
Ryder Hesjedal + 8"
Giampaolo Caruso + 10"
Mauro Santambrogio + 13"
Cadel Evans + 16"

*Bradley Wiggins dropped to 23rd from 6th place

More surprises likely today (time trial).
