Lance inspects his Kenny Scharf-designed Trek TTX time trial bike (sans art wheels for now) with legendary coach Johan Bruyneel...

Stationed in Venice, Italy for the kickoff of this year's GIRO D'TALIA on Saturday, Supertouch buddy LANCE ARMSTRONG has just gotten his new KENNY SCHARF and SHEPARD FAIREY-designed TREK art cycles up and running and ready to hit the hills in the grand tour's epic centennial run. The 2009 Giro d'Italia celebrates the race's 100 year legacy—from Ganna to Contador—with a spectacular and unexpected route. It lacks the massive, mythical mountain passes and its final stage ends in the south for the first time in years. Riders will visit all of Italy's great cities including Venezia, Trieste, Milano, Torino, Firenze, Bologna, Napoli and Roma, and delivers deceptively difficult stages in the second half of the event. Stay tuned to ST for updates throughout the three-week run...
