We came across this amazing infographics Giro d’Italia 2013 designed by Jake Stevens who is studying BA of Journalism (Sport) at La Trobe University, Melbourne.
According to Stevens: “The colour pink doesn’t often feature in most of the world’s toughest competitions, but the Pink Jersey awarded to the leader of the Giro d’Italia commands both respect and fear in the eye of its competitors.
The Giro is the first of the three Grand Tours in the cycling world – the others being the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España. With a rich history of it’s own, the Giro is a smaller event than it’s French sister, yet every bit as tough. It has steeper climbs than the Tour De France, and more of them.”
