Viva il Giro! Podium Cafe's coverage of Italy's grand tour
It may have all been a long time ago, but the 1924 Giro d'Italia was a lot more modern than most realise.
Stage 7 to Foligno looked like one of the few remaining chances for the sprinters and indeed the stage ended in a frantic sprint with André Greipel finishing off yet another day of hard work from Lotto-Soudal by refusing to be denied in the sprint. He squeezed past to take the stage ahead of Nizzolo and Modolo.
