Giro d'Italia Prologue
Congrats to Taylor Phinney for winning the opening time-trial prologue in the Giro d'Italia, the first three stages of which are taking place in Denmark this year. Americans traditionally have not shined in the Giro. Phinney is just the ninth American ever to win an indvidual stage of the three-week race, and only Andy Hampsten has won the final maglia rosa. Tomorrow, Phinney will start stage 1 of the Giro wearing that jersey.
