L'Aquila in the Rain

That yellow rain vest sure does clash with Vinokourov's pink jersey. I
just can't get excited about a doper in pink. This year not so much
with the fully matching outfits for the various jersey competitors.
Must be the economy. Today's is the longest stage. Must really suck in
the rain.

Helicopter shots show still so many ruined buildings. Italian word of
today: terremoto=earthquake. You can't easily retrofit say, an entire
village built in 1293.

Uphill finish. 13k to go. Every guy looks exhausted and soaking wet.
They have to eat more to keep warm.
