Michele Scarponi Presented Trofeo Senza Fine, Pink Jersey for 2011 Giro

In Herning today Michele Scarponi was presented the Trofeo Senza Fine and Maglia Rosa by Michele Aquarone and Mauro Vegni for winning the 2011 Giro d'Italia.

"Sincerely, I don't like to become the winner in these circumstances," said Scarponi. "My dream is to raise my arms up in the air in Milan with the trophy. If I can achieve that, the emotion will be huge and totally different. I don't want to think too much that I own this trophy now. I prefer to focus on the coming Giro. I want to win this one for good."
