Video: Ballymena says ciao to the Giro D’Italia

Waiting for Video...

The people of Ballymena defied heavy rain to bring a great atmosphere - and lots of pink colour - to the route of the Giro d’Italia as it passed through the town on Saturday.

The worst downpour came around 10.15am when the promotional ‘caravan’ made halts at various points along the route to hand out pink ‘clappers’ and much needed pink ponchos.

As the time for the racing cyclists neared, the kerbsides began to fill up and by the time the actual race arrived there was a superb atmosphere.
