2012 Giro d’Italia

YouTube Preview Image

The Giro is hot, hot, hot. You like action? This is action. it was, in my opinion, far better than the Tour de France for the better part of the last decade.

The video commentary is a bit over the top, with plendy of clumsy lines like this one:

The toughest race, in the worlds most beautiful place.

But, they ain’t really lying.

I first saw the video over at http://anello-grande.blogspot.com/2011/10/giro-ditalia-2012-preview-video.html.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive.

  1. What a B-day present from the Giro. May 25, stage 19: Treviso – Alpe di Pampeago, 197km!!!!

  2. You come over, Ill come along. We cover a few days and drink ourselves into rehab. It’ll be one for the ages…

    No, I’m serious.

  3. You gotta drive though. My license expired a decade ago and I havent gotten around to getting a new one. Otherwise Im down for whatever.

    This goes for anyone of you numb-nuts from te DC crew. Im down to don a DC costume and get 6-kinds of stupid.

    really.

  4. this numb nut will be either on the mortirolo or up passo stelvio on the final saturday. bikepunk, it’s on.

  5. Held a WA state flag up on on the Giro 2010 in support of Farrar.

    Like anyone with half a brain, about two weeks into the race, he looked at the Zoncolan and called it a day. You can’t run, you can’t hide, from those dolomite climbs. They’ll get ya.

    Didn’t stop us from tossing back a few. Riding those roads…seeing a car once every 30 minutes at most…watching 75-year-olds walk up the closed roads…1000…2000…3000 feet, carrying a bottle of red wine or three….

    Them I-talians know what’s up.

  6. Great vid too.

    The faint Italian accent to the otherwise american voice-over just made my girlfriend come check out the screen like goddamn catnip. Damnit.

  7. Fuck yeah! I have always viewed ‘le tour’ as a heavy weight boxing championship. The Giro has always been like goddamned drunkend bar brawl. Anything goes and by far more entertaining.
