Di Luca takes the Giro lead!

The Lanterne Rouge from Stage 1 of last year's Tour de France has taken the lead in the General Classification of the Giro d'Italia! Danilo Di Luca of Liquigas is a strong contender for podium placement if he remains strong throughout the Giro.

It always makes me feel good to see former Lanternes Rouges ride successfully in their subsequent cycling careers - it shows what amazing professionals these riders are, even when they occasionally wind up in the bottom of the standings while working tirelessly for their team leader.
