Ale Jet... after 27 Giro wins you are allowed to be called Ale Jet. Petacchi holds off Cavendish and takes the win for Lampre at Parma.
Cavendish seems happy enough with second place. A picture says a thousand words, but its the rest of the story that it misses; Cavendish was not so happy and 100 metres after the line where we were standing he was accusing Petacchi of not riding a straight line.
Di Luca looks nothing less than brilliant on a bike. Sure he failed a test and has been suspended but now he's back. Many don't like that fact, but the Italian tifosi seem to care little about that and I am with them.
The guy in the suit behind him is the owner of Lampre, Mario Galbusera. He seems like a real enthusiast sitting in the team bus watching the stage, I get the feeling he sponsors the team out of passion rather than solely for marketing gains, perfect.
Lampre. They have had some troubled times as a team of late, but they are still dead flash at the finish line.
