Di Luca wins big at the Giro!

Lanterne Rouge of Stage 1 of the 2006 Tour de France, Danilo Di Luca of Liquigas, has launched himself into the ranks of cycling superstars with a breakthrough performance in the 2007 Giro d'Italia. His strong 8th-place ride in the stage 20 42-km Individual Time Trial virtually assures him of the big win and the top step in the final podium!

Here's the story of his ride to victory from Cycling News.

Unfortunately Di Luca will not be riding in the Tour de France, so we won't have an opportunity to see him again as the Lanterne Rouge in 2007.

Another former Lanterne Rouge, Leonardo Piepoli of Saunier Duval, also had a great ride in the Giro and won the mountains classification! There was some speculation that if he hadn't also been riding in support of his team leaders, he would have been a strong contender for the overall prize too.
