Giro d’Italia 2012 – Stage 2: Herning 206km. Cav is King!


The Giro d’Italia 2012 – Stage 2 and Cav is King. If these were Medieval times I’d have to throw myself on his mercy. Prostrate myself at the foot of the steps to the Sky bus, next Monday in Frosinone. Trust that in the joy of his re-confirmation as King of Denmark he’d be merciful.

How could I doubt him? The Primavera?  Gent-Wevelgem?  Mere abberations. QuickStep, desperate Italians, gravity, devious Belgians – purge all that from your memory.

Give him a flat parcours, wind from the North Sea? – that doesn’t matter;  breakaways? – that’s what Big Stannard and the boys are for; tight packed peloton on tricky roads?  – a mere bagatelle.

Last kilometre madness? Step forward King Mark of Cav. Cav is King!
