Yes, we all know that the Milan stage was the epitome of organization. It was a joke, I love the Italians and their bikes.

It's just that this years Giro was a bit disorganized IMO. YMMV. You people need to lighten up. Sheesh.

No, what I am suggesting is that the Roman's ability to create, run and see the fall of an empire has little to do with the Italian's ability to stage a Giro without stoppages by the peloton due to concerns over their safety. Just sayin'.

The problem with using botto's lack of capitalization as a barb against him is that it's a very old issue. Here's an illustration of how old:
