After race photos
Fabiano Ghilardi provides an insight into the after-race activities of a race winner
When Edita Puckinskaite (Nobili Rubinetterie) dramatically won the Giro d'Italia this year, she celebrated publicly on the race podium, receiving the trophies and spraying sparkling wine over the spectators.
Later, with the stage town of Madonna del Ghisallo emptying, she took time out to donate her race jersey to the church, which is steeped in cycling history. She also had a souvenir photo taken with the team, staff and sponsors of Nobili.
Fabiano Ghilardi was on-hand to capture these precious moments, he was working on behalf of the team that day.
