    • Maglianera - Cycling Socks to Blow Away the Winter Cobwebs

      The Maglian Nera, like the albeit longer lasting Latern Rouge in the Tour de France, was awarded at the Giro d’Italia to the rider who worked incredibly hard, achieved little fanfare and finished last, nonetheless within the maximum time limit.
