Pink makes a statement
It is suggested, but not substantiated, that ‘blue’ was originally the traditional colour chosen for baby girls, and ‘pink’ was the popular choice for baby boys. Perhaps this goes a long way to support everyone’s fascination, irrespective of gender, with the colour, Rosa.
No one does it better – race reviews, that is, than Cosmo Catalano
We can do this all day long
Add to this, Italian flair, 100 years of racing heritage, landscapes to blow all of life’s worries away, and you’ve got the start of an incredible summer of racing.
If the Classics inspire us to get out on the bike in the dark, harsh days of spring. Then the Giro is the inspiration for the turning up the summer volume. Don’t believe me? Just see how many pink jerseys you spot on your next outing.
As ever, thank you Signore Cosmo Catalano for a formidable round-up of week 1.
