That's Amore. Giro D'Italia...Zoncolan taking the long route.

It's Footy season here in Adelaide, I even got cold riding in the rain with my lovely lady yesterday.  Winter is just around the corner.  I don't often take leave from my work at this time of year, it seems pointless when it's getting cold, but not cold enough for snow...but this year is different. I'm off to Italy :-)

Apart from 13 Tour's DownUnder, a few Sun Herald Tours, last year's World Champs and every other weeks local races I ain't seen much cycling so it's going to be quite an experience for me.  One would think that I would have my itinerary meticulously planned to the n'th detail by now but certain things have transpired throughout the last while that have made this not so.

Rather than panic, I thought I might ask my friends at Podium Cafe if they have any suggestions or advice for my planned trip to the land of pizza and nice tans.  I'm flying out sometime next week when I get my shit together and am going to buy a car in England (an old Volvo perhaps...or maybe a Skoda Octavia wagon so I might possibly do some entourage assimilation)and drive over there, so I don't envisage getting to the Giro until they start heading back up towards the mountains of the North. I'd like to catch a few flat stages so I can get some photos from an overhanging tree near the 1 km to go mark, by then, Prince Harry should be slingshotting Cav towards the front.  I'd also like to get a few miles in the legs before we hit the mountains.

It's Mountains i'm wanting though and I'll be waving the Podium Cafe flag as high up Mont Zoncolan as my old legs will carry me. I might even act like a complete dick and run alongside Jack, Cam, Richie, Matty, Rennie and Robbie in a Ned Kelly outfit or something equally appropriate i see fit between now and then. 

So....does anyone know a good Pizza place in Milan?
