I’m delighted that Marco Pinotti won the final stage of the Giro.
But did he have a little extra help from the Carabinieri motorbike?
If he did well done for capitalising on it. He is a top time triallist who has won the final stage of the Giro before so today’s result is no surprise.
A year ago he was lying in hospital with a fractured hip after he and Craig Lewis crashed out of the 2011 Giro during Stage 19.
