Giro Rosa team time trial

Sitting down to write about the Giro Rosa, it’s hard to recall the 10 stages of the Giro as a whole event. Put together, the days melt into a sleep-deprived blur of incredible bike racing, hot bus rides, hotels, and hours of video editing. What I remember best are specific moments of stages, atmosphere, shots, feelings.. below are my favorite moments from each stage.

 

Stage 1

Pure anticipation and excitement. Stage 1 of my first Giro Rosa with this team. I’ve always had a fascination with the team time trial.  The sleek bikes and aero helmets, the whir of disc wheels, the elegance of the team working and turning together, racing against the clock.

To cover all bases and ensure the content we produced was as strong as possible, the team brought in Aaron Cook, a local filmmaker who has worked previously with the team. With Aaron there, I had the necessary time to do the social media.
