After securing a dominant win in this year's Giro d'Italia, CSC's Ivan Basso has returned to his home in Cassano Magnago as Giro victor and father to a new son, Santiago. While Basso celebrated his triumph in the loop of Italy, it was also his first opportunity to see his baby son, who was born during the last week of the race. Basso saluted Santiago by displaying a photo of the newborn as he crossed the line in stage 20 of the Giro.
