Giro d’Italia/4. Inside the suitcase


Twenty one intense days were spent in close contact with the stories and enterprises that made the  2013 Giro d’Italia unforgettable: it will certainly remain a priceless memory for the guests invited by Wega, official sponsor of Cannondale Pro Cycling. Thanks to the Hospitality program initiative in occasion of the Giro, their Pink Race experience took place aboard the team’s fleet as they followed the white-green jerseys from Naples to Brescia.

This was a race without precedent when it came to the weather, which forced the organizers to make last minute changes and pray for more clement conditions, which didn’t even save the passage through the Marca. It was a challenge that put the pink caravan to some epic cycling tests, like in the historic stage to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, along curves that were blanketed by a spectacular snowfall. But in our guests’ suitcases there was also room for sunglasses and swimsuits: a prerogative of the Giro is to indulge a passion for sports as you take in all the beauty of the entire Boot. And of course, there was plenty of excellent coffee on hand, thanks to the Mininova machines installed by  Wega.
