THAT'S RIGHT... STOP PRESS : LOMBARDO TAKES GIRO STAGE 1 AND LEADERS “MAGLIA ROSA”

On the eve of this seasons first “grand Tour”, the Giro d’Italia, which kicks off from Napoli on Saturday. Today saw the first stage of the newly created Giro d’Italia Amatori. 

Team VVF – Planet X, wonder woman, Ilaria Lombardo, continued her current run of form, with an explosive attack, under the red kite, with 1km to go. The uphill run in, proved to be the perfect launch pad for “Ila”, who distanced her break away companions, to comfortably take the stage, and pull on the first leaders jersey.

The race finishes on Sunday, in Perugia. But we will be keeping you updated here, daily, to see if our girl can hold onto pink.

In the mens event, our man, (ex junior World champion and Russian Pro champ) Vladislav Borisov, took a fine 5th place, in a small group sprint. “Vladi” missed his chance of the win, when he was closed into the barriers in the closing meters. But his form is good, and he lost no time to the winner, so his hopes for the overall are well set.

Next week we will be taking our first delivery of the beautifully Italian made, team kit. Get in there quick, cos this stuff's gonna fly out.

A happy "Ila" at the finish of stage one.

The VVF - PLANET X guys and girls are kitted out with 2 models of Planet X bikes:

PLANET X N2A SRAM RED TEAM EDITION
and
PLANET X MONDO SRAM RED TEAM EDITION
