Friday Photo Challenge – posing

The Giro d’Italia kicks off shortly and every year the organisers choose a very attractive model to look after this magnificent trophy. This photo is from a couple of year’s ago and was taken by my beloved. The Trofeo Senza Fine (Cup without End) which is awarded to the winner of the General Classfication is currently on display at the Palazzo della Gran Guardia in Verona, in front of the Arena, where this year’s race concludes. However, next week it’ll be at the start, along with all the riders, in beautiful Bologna.

This year’s Giro runs from 11 May to 2 June, the event both starts and finishes with individual time-trials and a whole lotta pain in between.
