Giro visiting extreme northern Italy
The Giro d'Italia kicks off today, in Seraing, Belgium.
Today's stage is another of those “non-prologue prologues,” 6.2 kilometers (or about 4 miles) in length, with a healthy climb in the middle.
The official Giro page calls this year's race the five-star edition, with defending champion Paolo Savoldelli, Ivan Basso, 2004 winner Damiano Cunego, 2003 winner Gilberto Simoni, and Danilo Di Luca the five favorites.
We'll also get to watch Jan Ullrich riding into condition, facing a very difficult final week of racing.

I'll be posting a Giro roundup later today.
