NUOVO “KILLER” CERCASI

PESCHICI: Da Molfetta a Peschici, sono 189 km, e si passa dalla provincia di Foggia a quella di Bari, 2 realtà storicamente legate più al calcio che alle 2 ruote. Una ancora ricorda sognante l’epoca di Zemanlandia e del Foggia dei miracoli di Ciccio Baiano, l’altra, Bari feudo dei Matarrese, famiglia che si era insidiata anche ai vertici della Federcalcio. Si arriva a Peschici, dove in un ciclismo ormai lontano e di cui non si ha nostalgia, Danilo Di Luca seppe cogliere una vittoria spettacolare con un’accelerazione degna del suo soprannome: “il killer”. Qui a Peschici, si cerca in questa frazione nervosa un nuovo “killer”, che potrebbe uscire sia dal […]

En la casa del trullo volante

Alberobello: otra ronda de carrusel. La región del giro cambio pero el paisaje es siempre increíble y, mientras que en el norte de Italia es un día lluvioso, este #Giro100 sigue brillando en el sol.

En el ciclismo moderno esta ciudad es famosa por el trullo volante, Leonardo Piepoli, compañero de equipo de Riccardo Riccò y  experto gregario en ayudar a los capitanes cuesta arriba. El escenario: 224 km desde Castrovillari hasta Alberobello, con sólo un gpm de cuarta categoría en Bosco delle Pianelle. La etapa es adecuada para los velocistas pero las trampas están […]
