S9 Ep57: Kilometre 0 – La Prima Donna

The Cycling Podcast

In Italian, unlike in English, ‘prima donna’ is certainly no insult, meaning literally ‘first woman’ or first female voice in a company of singers. If the Giro often resembles an opera, though, only this year has the chorus of race narrators acquired such a figure - at least on Italian television. Giada Borgato was a professional rider & Italian champion herself but has traded the peloton for the commentary box, where this year she is making history as Italian state broadcaster Rai’s first lead female co-commentator. Over the weekend, Daniel met Giada & others who know her to piece together her trailblazing journey.  Kilometre 0 by The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens
