Race tech: Giro d'Italia time trial bikes

Massive photo gallery: speed machines in Belfast

This year's Giro d'Italia kicked off with a 21.7km team time trial around the streets of Belfast in Northern Ireland. The roads were wet, the rain was sputtering, and the winds were whipping about, but that didn't keep teams from cracking out their full-blown aero machinery. Take a look at some of the bikes that the riders used today.
