Breakaway Inspiration

Cycling fans know that perhaps 9 out of 10 breakaway efforts in pro bicycle racing get swallowed up by the field or "peloton." But as my favorite lottery slogan says, "You can't win if you don't play." (No, I don't throw money away on the lottery.)

This year's Giro d'Italia has been quite interesting so far, and the end of stage 5 was no exception. I've never seen this level of excitement + confusion as the field tries to catch these three riders so close to the line. Check out this short video on Universal Sports to watch the end.
