  • No such luck :(

    Greipel, again.

  • Valverde's riding like he's had a fresh bag this morning.

  • That was a huge crack !

  • Interesting. Good racing. Why I love theGiro.

    I can't decide if Tom D was on a bad day, or just taking it easy because he really is there just to win TTs.
    TT or not, I can't help but think he was on a bad day. Tomorrow will tell.

  • Just read that boy poppel and viviani missed the time cut.

  • Excellent day for my fantasy team. Even Kadri chipped in with points.

    Hard to judge any of the climbers too much before we hit the high mountains but today's stage looked a bad omen for the rest of Dumoulin's race.

  • Cripes, I'm still top of the leader board. This can't last, surely.

  • Strong ride by Landa today, on a stage where his rivals expected to take time out of him. It's set up nicely for two weeks of GC cut and thrust.

  • Should be great - can't wait for the big mountains. And my god I want to go to Toscana again. Food, wine, incredibly pretty climbs.
    Anyone got a prediction yet? I think Landa's the best placed to make big gains on the climbs to come, but I can't help but think he's gonna lose time elsewhere.

  • I can't see any major banana skins for Landa. There are no flat time trials to come.

    I don't think Sky will want him to take the lead until later because they don't have the strongest team to control the race.

    It's poised pretty nicely for a good battle among a few contenders. Tomorrow's stage should shake the GC out...

  • Just tuned in, why's Landa 3 minutes back?

  • WTF Landa?

  • Six minutes now ?

  • bad rest-day bag?

  • Landa abandons.


  • Oh dear. Must be a pretty bad lurgy. Picked up something nasty during the wet tt, maybe? Big shame, was looking forward to seeing him in the mountains.

  • I can't see any major banana skins for Landa


  • Sky always wet their custom mattresses at the Giro.

  • Unspecified illness, according to official Sky tweet:­2745864417280

    Composition of the chasing group will give Majka, Zakarin and Pozzovivo options.

  • Being sent to the Giro as Sky's leader is a sure fire guarantee you'll not see the finish.

  • Roche in as leader now?

  • Astana are absolutely punishing the peloton .

  • Yes, because rain is well-proven as a cause of illness. That's why northern European countries are much sicker than warm, dry countries. FFS.

  • Looks like a great stage - anyone have an English-commentary link?
