Bettini wins Giro di Lombardia

Paolo Bettini, never one for understatement, crossed the finish line of yesterday’s Tour of Lombardy in first. Paolo was wearing his newly won rainbow jersey and rainbow bike. So that we did not forget his gold medal of two years ago, he still donned his golden helmet, albeit with new rainbow striping running through it.
