Basso’s new face

Monday, 24 May 2010

A great photo courtesy of For some time I’ve always thought Basso looked as if he wasn’t trying, his face was part smile, part gurn. Clearly this was a superficial opinion, he’s not spent the last year on a cycling travel holiday but yesterday’s stage up the dreaded Zoncolan showed a new face. Just look at the rage and pain on display.

A rest day in the Giro and then all the riders will have a mask of pain as they do the Plan de Corones mountain time trial, an ascent that rivals the Zoncolan for intensity and insanity.

EDIT: the photo is by Bettini, I’ll try to credit more of the images used from now on. Thanks for Simon below for the “reminder”

Hi Simon, I did include a link to the original story but you're right, I'll try to be more diligent. Thanks.
