Where I stayed
Park Hotel Grilli
My first big ride is tomorrow, Nove Colli - 200k's, 3900m of climbing and 11,000 people. Should be amazing. The weather looks like it will be ok, forecast is to be cloudy and 27 degrees, those of you in Mlebourne should just remember that temperature - HA.
Glad I got a diesel car to drive around, as I put in 26 litres yesterday at a cost of Euro$39 (about AUS$60) That was for about 380k's so fairly economical, I can hear my father laughing right now as I have never been so fuel efficient in my life
Today (Sabato 17th) is ride registration and chilling out, Giro d'Italia is on TV every afternoon live for about 3 hours, so times I wish there were english subtitles but watching the racing live is quite a thrill. Yesterdays stage saw Di Luca attack with Ricco and then Contador straight on his wheel, shortly after they had a closeup of Di Luca's face and it looked like his was literally gong to explode with the effort.
Highlight of the trip so far: Uno Espresso for a dollar!
