Giro d’Italia 2009 – Day 5: Stage 18, Sulmona – Benevento


Ciao from Benevento!  To go in the “it’s a small world” file – when we left you last night, we’d narrowly escaped running out of gas en route Sulmona.

After a bit of messing around, we found the apartment; who answered the door?

Scott McGrory, former Six Day star – with 15 wins – and that isn’t easy in ‘the race to nowhere’.

Scott works for Fox Sports TV in Australia now and was sharing our digs.

As you can imagine, he was duly interviewed this morning.

He has a new site; – give it a skek and say that VeloVeritas sent you!

We decided that the angle today was along “Giro hits town” lines, rather than go race route or hard core race, we went “local colour”.
