Taylor Phinney of BMC Racing Team won the opening prologue of this year’s Giro d’Italia. As a result he held the pink leader’s jersey until stage 4. Taylor, the 2010 World Under 23 time trial champion and 2010 U.S. national time trial champion, is also considered a strong candidate for the Olympic squad in the time trial. Taylor was joined by his dad, Davis Phinney as a surprise guest! Support the Davis Phinney Foundation!
