Giro d’Italia in Palermo

On Saturday life in Palermo ground to a halt for the opening stage of the Giro d’Italia, as the main cross city arterial roads were closed to allow the team time trial to take place. It was a rare sight to see the city streets free from traffic and, as an avid cyclist, it was a pleasure for me to attend a top level competition in Sicily.

To be fair, the city council filled in the obvious potholes. The roads looked like a patchwork quilt.
