Sardinia for Fabio Aru. Deshaun Watson Texans Jersey . Sicily for Vincenzo Nibali.The 100th edition of the Giro dItalia will pay homage to the countrys two top riders with a start that will include stages on both of Italys largest islands.Revealed Tuesday in Milan, the May 5-28 race will start with three stages in Sardinia to honor Aru, followed by two legs in Sicily for Nibali.Aru last year became the first Sardinian to wear the Giro leaders pink jersey, when he finished second to Alberto Contador, while Nibali, a Sicilian, won in 2013 and 2016.Aru and Nibali were teammates at Astana the past four years but Nibali recently left to lead the new Bahrain-Merida team, setting up a duel in the Giro.After crossing the Strait of Messina by boat, the race will climb north through Calabria and Puglia and eventually visit all but four of Italys 20 regions.To celebrate the 100th edition we have to celebrate all of Italy, race director Mauro Vegni said.Next years race will also include many of the legendary climbs from the Giros history, including a finish at Oropa in the northwest region of Piedmont, where Marco Pantani won in 1999, and two ascents in a single stage of the high-altitude Stelvio Pass, near the Swiss border.There are two time trials -- a 39.2-kilometer (24-mile) route through the Umbrian winemaking region of Sagrantino in Stage 10 and a 28-kilometer (17.4 mile) concluding leg from Monzas Formula One track to Milans cathedral.With four mountain-top finishes and a total of 67.2 kilometers (42 miles) of time trialing, the route could be more challenging than the recently announced 2017 Tour de France, which has only three mountain-top finishes and 36 kilometers (22 miles) of time trialingStill, Tour winner Chris Froome, 2014 Giro champion Nairo Quintana and two-time Giro winner Alberto Contador have all indicated they plan to focus on the Tour next year.But the time trials could attract rising Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin, who is a specialist at racing against the clock.Here are some aspects of the 2017 race:--VOLCANIC SLOPES:After a rest day to transfer from Sardinia, Stage 4 on May 9 starts in the coastal town of Cefalu and features the races first uphill finish on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna -- where Contador won in 2011.Stage 10 sets up for sprinters with the finish line in Messina, Nibalis birthplace, having started in Pedara on the slopes of Etna.The finish is really tough, and theres little vegetation so it can be windy, Nibali said of the Etna stage. Getting the pink jersey going into my hometown would be great, but lets take it step by step.Organizers had already announced details of the three stages in Sardinia.The Giro will set off from the port town of Alghero on an undulating 203-kilometer (126-mile) route along the islands northern coast to Olbia.Stage two is a hilly 208-kilometer (129-mile) leg from Olbia to Tortoli, which could also end in a sprint, while the final day in Sardinia is a mainly flat 148 kilometers (92 miles) from Tortoli to Cagliari.---IN VINO VERITAS: For the third consecutive year, the Giro will feature a time trial dedicated to one of Italys top winemaking regions.This year its Stage 10 from Foligno to Montefalco through the Umbrian vineyards where the bold, red variety Sagrantino is produced.Nearly 40 kilometers (25 miles) in length, the undulating stage could have a big impact on the overall standings.Along the same lines, a 2015 stage from Barbaresco to Barolo celebrated Piedmonts top wines and a rainy leg this year from Radda to Greve in Chianti traversed the heart of the Tuscan red winemaking region.---HEROES AND LEGENDSItalian cycling icons Gino Bartali, Ercole Baldini, Fausto Coppi, Marco Pantani and others will be remembered with stages in their honor.Stage 11 runs through the Appenine Mountains after beginning in Pont a Ema, where Bartali was born -- directly in front of the museum dedicated to the 1936, `37 and `46 winner.The next days stage starts in Forli, where 1958 champion Baldini was born.Stages 13 and 14 are dedicated to five-time winner Fausto Coppi. The 13th leg ends in Tortona, where the Campionissimo died in 1960 and the next leg starts in Castellania, where Coppi was born in 1919.Stage 14 concludes with a climb to Oropa, where Pantani posted one of his more memorable victories in 1999.---DECISIVE DOLOMITESThe race will likely be decided in the Dolomites Range in the final week.Stage 16 figures to be one of the races toughest challenges. The stage begins with an ascent of the steep and narrow Mortirolo then the Stelvio is climbed both from the Italian and Swiss sides before a final descent into Bormio. At an altitude of 2,758 meters (9,050 feet), the Stelvios peak will represent the races highest point -- traditionally known as the Cima Coppi (Coppi peak).Stage 18 could be even tougher. While only 137 kilometers (85 miles) long, the races showcase stage will take the peloton over four major mountain passes -- Pordoi, Valparola, Gardena and Pinei.The next day features the fourth summit finish at Piancavallo, while the penultimate leg from Pordenone to Asiago includes a difficult climb to Monte Grappa -- the scene of fighting in both world wars.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Julién Davenport Womens Jersey .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. Zach Cunningham Texans Jersey .1 million pounds ($61.2 million) on Saturday, giving the beleaguered English Premier League champions a major lift. http:///...wl-jersey-authentic/ . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. SEATTLE -- One swing by Mariners pinch-hitter Adam Lind erased a masterful performance by White Sox ace Chris Sale, who could only watch from the dugout.Lind hit a three-run homer off closer David Robertson in the ninth inning to give Seattle an improbable 4-3 comeback victory on Monday night and hand Chicago its fifth consecutive loss.Seattle, which had managed just one hit in eight innings off Sale, rallied against Robertson (0-2), who had recorded 13 straight save opportunities.Franklin Gutierrez singled to open the ninth, but was forced out at second on Robinson Canos fielders choice. Nelson Cruz walked and Dae-Ho Lee struck out.Kyle Seager followed with an RBI single to center to make it 3-1. Lind pinch-hit for Chris Iannetta and hammered an 0-1 pitch over the wall in right-center for his 14th home run.I knew I hit it well and I hit it true, with the backspin, Lind said. But no, to answer your question, I didnt know if I had enough, but it carried out.Sale, bidding to become the first 15-game winner in the majors, allowed just a first-inning single en route to eight scoreless innings.He did what an ace does, Robertson said. He went eight innings, didnt give up any runs, and I went in there and just blew it. I pitched poorly. I gave up hits, I walked guys and I didnt get the job done. Its pathetic on my part. It was supposed to be a cutter away, he said. It just ended up right down the middle and he put it in the seats.Tim Anderson and Todd Frazier homered to account for all of the runs for the White Sox, who were outscored 16-1 in being swept three games over the weekend by the Angels.Sale gave up a one-out single in the first to Gutierrez, who was erased on a double play. Sale walked Leonys Martin in the third and then did not allow another runner until tiring in the seventh.Sale hit Gutierrez and Lee with pitches in the seventh, but escaped by striking out Seager to end the inning.Iannetta walked to open the eighth, but also was doubled up. Sean OMalley then walked, but Sale enticed Daniel Robertson into an inning-ending force out.I think in the last couple of innings, hitting a couple of guys, walking the leadoff guy . he ended up getting out of it, but I thought he had done his job at that point, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said.Sale, tied for the A.L. lead with three complete games, struck out six and walked one before being lifted after 100 pitches.Do I like it? No. Do I understand it? Yeah. I get it, Sale said about being removed. I understand where theyre coming from. Its a long season. Its not a sprint. Its a marathon. So maybee I go out there and my pitch count gets over 120 and then . Zach Cunningham Youth Jersey. you never know, so it is what it is and you move on.David Rollins (1-0) pitched the ninth inning for his first career win, despite allowing two hits.Chris Sale was Chris Sale tonight, Mariners manager Scott Servais said. He was very, very good. Probably as good as weve seen all year. We hit some balls OK, not a lot of luck. But we were able to get something going in the ninth inning. Great job to hang in there. Its really easy to give up and say, `Ah, this isnt our night, and move on. But we dont do that, this club doesnt do that. We had the right guy in the right spot and he got a good pitch, and he didnt miss it.ONE LESS ERROR, STILL A LOSSAn official scoring change reduced Seattles errors from four to three in Sundays 8-1 loss to Houston. The Mariners originally were charged with two errors on a second-inning play when Kyle Seager misplayed Carlos Gomezs hit to third and Gomez continued on to second on a throwing error by left fielder Seth Smith. The change removed the error charged to Smith. No runs were scored in the inning.UP NEXT:White Sox: Left-hander Jose Quintana (7-8, 3.21 ERA) is 2-7 with a 4.38 ERA over his last 11 starts after going 5-1 with a 1.36 in his first seven. Hes making his first start since throwing one scoreless inning in his first All-Star Game appearance.Mariners: Left-hander Wade Miley (6-6, 5.44) has lost all three starts since coming off the disabled list with a left shoulder impingement, as well as the one prior to going on the DL. Over that stretch, he is 0-4 with a 6.00 ERA.TRAINING ROOM:White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon, on the 15-day DL retroactive to July 6 with a sprained left wrist, continues to improve and played catch over the weekend. Hes coming along OK, I dont think hes coming along as fast wed hoped, but it was his first time going out and throwing and getting going, manager Robin Ventura said. Hopefully, today well find a little bit more about him.Mariners: SS Ketel Marte was not in the starting lineup, but not because of the ankle he injured on Friday. Marte sat out Saturday, but played Sunday. Ketels under the weather today, more of like a viral thing, Servais said.RHP Taijuan Walker, on the 15-day DL with right foot tendinitis, played catch Sunday without wearing a protective boot and showed no after effects. Well probably start ramping that up a little bit, but reports were fine yesterday, Servais said.
