Enjoy latest pictures from the Giro 2009:







giro23Astana’s three Musketeers ride together – Lance, Levi and Chris

giro30Konstantsin Siutsou rumbles up the rocks just 20 seconds in front of the field en route to win the stage. Imagine this couble stones when they are wet on a rainy day…

giro29Edvald Boasson Hagen’s excellent campaign continued today with a stage win in Chiaverna.

giro22Podium girls at Giro! Aren’t they cute…

giro28Astana new jersey design. I don’t quite know how they did it… but “Astana” is almost gone from the jersey.

giro27Lance Armstrong in trouble… he had a hard go of it today. He said before the stage that he hopped to only lose 2 minutes. He lost a bit more than that, but I don’t quite think he’s done with this Giro just yet… Young Slovenian Janez Brajkovic (front)  is there to help him.


giro26Alessandro Petacchi got over the final lumps in today’s stage, dusted everyone in the sprint, and goes to bed tonight with the Maglia Rosa.

giro25Alessandro Petacchi still has what it takes to beat the best in the world.

giro24Another bunch sprint: Here Petacchi and Cavendish staged a showdown in this sprint… Ale-jet scored!

giro33Danilo Di Luca certainly has left a mark on the first half of the race…

giro32Danilo Di Luca showed once more his afterburners in the Classics-style-run-in to Pinerolo…
