People at the finish line weren't disappointed at the end of the stage.
Regarded as the new cycling hope after all the scandals rocketing the sport, Riccardo Ricco won the stage in a full display of power and awesomeness.
Unfortunately, the gap of just 30 seconds to the leader Bradley Wiggins wasn't enough for Ricco to take the maglia rosa. But it was enough to prove that only one of these two tough men is gonna win this Giro d'Italia edition, the third in the stage,Esteban Chaves, arriving at more than four minutes back.
Invited after, at Processo alla tappa, Sir Wiggo answered kindly to all of Alessandra's questions. Asked about what he thinks about Il Cobra, Wiggins was visibly shaking, full of admiration for Cobra and he tried to deliver the answer in italian : "Io lo amo. Io penso che Riccardo è un grande." ...
"Primo Fausto Coppi. In attesa degli altri corridori, trasmettiamo musica da ballo".
"Ecco che scatta Pantani! Scatto di Pantani!!!”
"-Che grinta che ha Danilo!
-E' un grande veramente..."
