Watching the giro yesterday on the tele, riders slogging up the inclines having encouragement shouted at them by road side supporters. Okay, that's fine by me... but those that run along side bellowing in the riders ear! Blimey, reckon I could do without that! I've seen it before in the TdF etc and always thought that it would put me off, but yesterday seemed to me above and beyond the normal. Is it just the Giro and the passionate Italians?
