Giro d’Italia 2012 – Stage 10: Civitavecchia – Assisi 187km. Impressive Rodriguez

-

Giorgio Moroder’s ‘The Chase’ from Midnight Express pumps out across the Civitavecchia sea front. A huge fibre glass sculpture of a nurse succumbing to the charms of a sailor – ‘Unconditional Surrender’ it’s titled – towers over us.

Civitavecchia
Unconditional Surrender. Looks like it!

The whole scene is surreal, topped off by Pippo ambling past in shorts and T-shirt.

He broke his hand yesterday and is out – but he still looks cool, pottering around Civitavecchia.
