I’ve been keeping a loose eye on this years 95th Giro d’Italia Europe’s first big multiple stage race after the Spring classics. This major pro cycling event started May 5th in the Danish city of Herning and will end in Milan, Italy on May 27th.

For android and iPhone users there is a 2012 app to keep track of statistics and GC placement.

If your Italian is good you can get live giro coverage:
