Whoever is in charge of the Giro d'Italia Twitter account (yes, Elon, we know it's X now), deserves a raise. 

Typically, an official race account will post a handful of things. These include, and are often limited to: sponsor promos, time gaps to the breakaway, and stage winner photos. The Giro account is not bound by such limits. No, the Giro account is a trove of visionary content.
