The Giro D’Italia comes to Bagni di Lucca

May 14th, 2015

Yesterday (13.05.2015) was stage 5 of this years Giro D’Italia. The stage started in La Spezia and finished 152 km later in Abetone travelling right through the centre of Bagni di Lucca. The crowds turned out in the fabulous sunshine and the bars, shops and houses put out their flags and pink balloons ( pink being the colour of the Italian sports paper that sponsors the event and the colour of the stage winners jersey)

Race favourite Alberto Contador moved into the overall lead after stage five of the Giro d’Italia, which was won by Slovenia’s Jan Polanc.
Spaniard Contador, who won the 2008 Giro, finished fourth on the first mountain finish of this year’s race.
The Tinkoff-Saxo rider leads the race by two seconds from Italian hope Fabio Aru, with Team Sky’s Australian Richie Porte in third, 20 seconds adrift. There is still a long way to go yet though.
