I shouldn’t be as geeked out about this as I am, as we haven’t even put 2009 to bed yet as we’ve got the final monument, the Giro di Lombardia this weekend (poetically named “Race of the Falling Leaves*”), this weekend. but I just can’t help it.
One thing I love: 13k of cobbles on stage 3- ending at the Arenberg. That’s cool.
In italian: “la classica delle foglie morte”
