Wordless Thursday: Contadors First One Day Victory

Couldn't resist this arty shot of Alberto Contador taking victory in Wednesdays Milano-Torino which happens to be Contador's first One Day race victory - a stunning statistic considering he is widely believed to be the greatest rider of his generation. Milano-Torino returned to the calendar this year having not featured since March 2007 - the 'Semi-Classic' is Italy's oldest race, and indeed one of the worlds, with the first edition appearing in 1876. The 2012 revamp saw the race finish atop the Colle di Superga, which created a very lead group, with Alberto eventually beating the likes of Joaquim Rodriguez, Vincenzo Nibali, Domenico Pozzovivo and Fredrik Kessiakof. Nice confetti...
