Italian victories in Il Giro never get old. Diego Ulissi provres that by adding his name to a long, long list of home country stage victors of the venerable Italian tour. To say he did it in style is a bit of an understatement. He pulled victory from a group of top level competition such as Cadel Evans, Rigo Uran Uran, Current Maglia Rosa owner Michael Mathews, Nairo Quintana and more on a ride that included pretty much every type of weather other than snow.

Martyn Ashton has always been an inspiration for his ability to do things on a road bike that are normally done on BMX or Mountain Bikes, but the way he is dealing with the incredible adversity of the injuries he suffered on the bike is truly inspiring. Such positivity is this and you'll know he is going to be just fine.
