Coppi, Bartali and rain

It sometimes rains at this time of year in Italy, and when it does, it rains hard. Day one of the Settimana Coppi e Bartali comprised two stages: a 90km race around Riccione which was won by Alessandro Bertolini of Selle Italia, and a 11km team time trial which went to Predictor Lotto. Tinkoff finished at 20 seconds looking decidedly wet. A happy Bertolini dried off nicely.
