2011 Giro d'Italia jerseys unveiled in Milan

Cristiana Capotondi at 2011 Giro d'Italia jersey launch

Italian actress Cristiana Capotondi helped to unveil this year's Giro d'Italia classification leaders' jerseys at a launch event at the Martini Bar in Milan on Tuesday night.

The most notable difference over previous editions of the jerseys is the inclusion of a tricolore strip on the neck and running up the front with '150' at the top - this signifies the 150th anniversary of Italy's national unification.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
