It would have been remiss of me not to mention this although I realise it’s of limited interest. One day bike race ‘Gran Piemonte’ took place earlier today. I caught the last 25km. The coverage I saw passed through Dogliani ( fab cathedral ! ) and then Monforte d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto, l’Annuziata, la Morra before finishing in Barolo ( ooo look, Cannubi ! ).
Needless to say there were plenty of great shots of the vineyards and the topography of the area, particularly from the helicopter.
It’s repeated on Eurosport 2 later tonight at 9PM and again tomorrow at 11.45AM
