Giro d’Italia 2012 – Stage 3: Horsens 190km. It’s Not All Ice Cream & Fairies

-

My club mate Davie Gardiner, in the Kirkcaldy and District CC, back in 1971 used to say that when he meant things were going swimmingly well; ‘it was aw ice cream an’ fairies!‘ Cav had one of those days yesterday. Not so today for the Giro d’Italia 2012 – Stage 3 to Horsens.

Rainbow jerseys, Sunday Times ‘richest sportsmen’ lists, bouquets and praise for team mates all fell by the wayside as his little body slapped hard onto that Danish tarmac.

To add insult to injury, one of the Farnese Vini guys rode over him as he sprawled on the Horsens road.
