Rapha have released a CD soundtrack entitled The Giro that pays homage to the Giro d'Italia.
The CD includes 28 Italian themed tracks, ranging from Verdi's Di Provenza il Mar from the opera La Traviata to traditional Italian folk to more modern disco and house music. It's a varied selection and is easy to listen to. Total playing time is around 1hr 13min.
Incredibly for Rapha, the CD is priced at a mere £12. It comes with its own hardcover booklet, complete with glossy photos of the Giro d'Italia to accompany the track listing.
Rapha intend to release more road race-inspired soundtracks this season for those who can't get enough cycling atmosphere into their lives.
