The 98th Giro d’Italia began with an Australian team win: Orica-GreenEdge first in the TTT to San Remo. Since then we’ve seen a succession of Aussies in the maglia rosa: Simon Gerrans, Michael Matthews and now Simon Clarke. The fifth stage will end with a mountain top finish and it’s possible that the lead of the general classification will change again. As we wait for stage five to start, here is a collection of photos by our roving photographer Wei Yuet Wong who has been filing every day… (while we’ve been busy in the office putting the finishing touches to RIDE #68 – which begins printing later this week).
Be sure to click each image below as they open a slideshow from the opening four stages.
