Flickr'ing the Giro

I had hoped this year's Giro would be heavily posted on Flickr, but so far, it's been pretty disappointing. Finally, today, Sergio Maistrello posted 18 photos from the start in Pordenone.

There are a few from yesterday's stage, too -- I'm partial to this shot (which two minutes later got a few more cameras), and AllessioAllessio's set from Livorno.

Also, this one shot by Giovanni Lentini.

Here's a composite from the prologue that's a nice idea, and a great panning shot of Bobby Julich (at right) in the ITT.

So is there any other shared gold out there on the other photo sharing sites? Feel free to link good Giro photography in the comments. Here are Flickr collections for Giro d'Italia and Giro.

Howzit All

Glad I googled my way onto this blog as I am a huge TDF fan

Have huge respect for Lance Armstrong- and for Bjarne Riis

So although Ivan Basso maybe the firm favourite for the Yellow Jersey in Paris

I hope that Jan Ullrich can turn it into glory this year.

Interesting thing is that CSC is not that strong as a team in the Giro

Anyone in the know that can enlighten me on that issue?

Cheers

I think CSC is incredbly strong as a team this year, as they shown in their TTT win and helping to get Basso an overall win. The TDF will be VERY interesting this year!
