An update on the Giro della Toscana

The Giro della Toscana was so full of chaos that the majority of the peloton refused to start the final stage.  I’ve written a round-up of the story, with reactions from riders and teams, including those that chose to race, and it’s here on Podium Café – but I HIGHLY recommend DS Marv Barras’ story about it all on the ORICA-AIS website.  So much to feel enraged about!  I can’t believe the women’s peloton can be treated so badly.    If I ever see a statement from the UCI, I’ll be sure to let you know….

UPDATE:  Toscana winner Claudia Häusler sent me a statement on why she rode the final stage – please click through to Podium Café to read it.
