Amber Pierce, the only USA rider on the Diadora-Pasta Zara squad, is planning something very cool for this year's Giro Donne - she'll be talking about the race live, and answering fan questions, at various points over the 10 days.
The first one will be tonight, at 22:00. To watch it - and join in, check out the Fuji Bikes special facebook application at 22:00 CEST - aka 1pm Pacific USA, 4pm Eastern USA, 9pm UK and 6am Melbourne (sorry Aussies!), and you can ask the Qs right now - and don't forget to follow Amber on twitter too!
It sounds like she'll have lots to talk about - check out her post-stage tweets!
Worked 50+ kms on the front w/ @stacherchick; brought the break back from a 7 min gap. High five Ali!— Amber Pierce (Rais) (@ambermalika) June 29, 2012
Satisfying work, watching minutes tick down on the gap & after,as my teammates blew me kisses of gratitude & called me "forte come un toro."— Amber Pierce (Rais) (@ambermalika) June 29, 2012
EDIT!! Amber said in this one that she'll be trying to do a Q&A stream every night of the race - check her twitter for details, because of the transfers, she can't say exactly when she'll be doing it
