BTW, the famous stage, Cuneo-Pinerolo, that Coppi won in 1949 was to be replicated tomorrow in the Giro. Unfortunately, due to several circumstances, the route was modified in April and the route will be remaining within Italy. It would have been nice to have seen what Coppi faced 60 years ago (minus the nice roads of today).
