Escape group of 12 with about 5minutes on the maglia rosa

Ardila is obviously fancying his chances and silencing his critics...
(was he not criticised last year as being a disappointment?)


Would be amazed if Il Grillo Bettini scooped this one[:p]

    Schleck looks incredible. Can he put 2 minutes into DDL in 40km TT?
  • Mr BumbleMr Bumble Posts: 572
    What a Giro!!!

    Schleck looks cool...
  • NervexProfNervexProf Posts: 4,202
    Schleck looks very cool - a revelation.

    Simoni wins it, DDL wins the Giro.
  • Mr BumbleMr Bumble Posts: 572
    Bravo Simoni!!!

    can he keep on the podium???
  • EurostarEurostar Posts: 1,806
    No, Dr Santuccione wins the Giro.

    a beautiful finish watching Simoni & Piepoli salute triumph in tandem...

    I hope he can keep his position on the podium!!!
  • Hmmm, one hopes Saunier aren't the Festina of this year [B)]

    tea is good
  • PeteinSQPeteinSQ Posts: 2,292
    That really would be a bummer especially as Miller is in that team.

  • Mr BumbleMr Bumble Posts: 572
    Where does the suspicion come from???

    I would be very surprised if that was the case.
  • afx237viafx237vi Posts: 12,630
    I would say Saunier Duval are one of the cleaner teams in the peloton:

    No-one there apart from maybe one rider jumps out at me and says doper.

    Nah. Piepoli & Simoni have always been class and Ricco won from a break (he ain't that good a climber)

    Of course, they ain't clean, but neither are they systematically doping in excess of everyone else.

    Did you get planning permission for that sense of humour bypass?

    From the constant doubt guided towards the legitamacy of any pro team/rider performance. Something which this sport will struggle to ever rid.

  • Good job Cunego towing DDL .
    crazy tifosi almost ruined the stage.
    I reached the decision to go on the offensive - to put a check on government abuse of power, where others had failed in stopping the federal juggernaut running amok
