The 100th Edition of the Giro d' Italia kicked off Friday May 5th on the island of Sardegna (or as we say in the states, Saridinia). The first three stages featured some exciting racing with some unexpected results in the opening stage and stage 3.
The racers are already enjoying their first rest day on Monday as the race moves to Sicily for an early test of the climbers legs on Mt Etna. Mt. Etna may be more famous for volcanic eruptions than bike racing. The Giro organizers are always looking to inject excitement into the race. Maybe they are hoping for an eruption while the racers scale this active volcano!
This week's Lucha Vino matchup features a Washington Grenache taking on a Cannonau challenger from Sardegna.
