Unserious Questions: First Giro rest day

    The VeloNews Grand Tour tradition continues. Unserious Questions is a weekly column that features a Q&A style interview with several Americans racing any given three-week long stage race. The questions are, as the column name suggests, the lesser asked (never asked) questions that make for a quick and catchy yet informative read. For the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia, Alex Howes and Joe Dombrowski are among the featured riders.

    What was your first thought when you got up this morning?

    Stetina: Damnit, I have to wait too long for breakfast. My Euro teammates sleep way too late.
    Howes: Why is it so hot in this room? Why is it so noisy outside? Why am I already awake? Why? Why? Why?!
    Haga: I should have swapped my ride clothes for my aeropress in my carry-on (the luggage was on the bus, taking the ferry overnight).
    Rosskopf: I guess car horns have replaced chirping birds as my wake-up call.
    Dombrowski: We are sleeping next to a highway. That is for sure.
