    Colle delle Finestre will be epic.

    Stages 13-14-15 are gonna bring out the true strong men... the a rest day an uphill TT. Nice.

    I also like the looks of stages 6 and 11, great for the classics / breakaway guys.

    Remember earlier this year then a lot of posters where slagging the GIro? I think they were trying to make an argument that the tour of california was the better race.. Man where they proven wrong!

    I think a lot of that is just due to the tv coverage here in the US.
    ATOC had not only Phil and Paul (and the rest of the Versus gang), but the High Def camera team directly from the TdF!
    Beeeeautifully photographed.
    Meanwhile the poor Giro had to do with the horrible duo of "GoGo" and Schlanger and we had to suffer through the abysmal grainy picture. Looked like somebody shot it on their iPhone.
    The Amgen Tour of Cali certainly looked a helluva lot better onscreen!!

    I am really stoked about this Giro and think it is going to be a great race in '11. I think it is very cool that stage 13 takes place in Austria for the Grossglockner with a 8.6 grade average. I did this climb over the summer.

    I just hope there will be good TV coverage.
