Behind the scenes at the Giro

Lots of noise last night as the trucks were rolling in and set up was in process for the Giro d’Italia finish today in Verona. I was out on the streets early this morning taking in the preparations for the big event. Here’s some behind the scenes shots you won’t see on TV.
