    Wonder if Sky bunged Astana in order to reduce the # of points J-Rod could collect

    I doubt it, more likely that Astana just desperate to rescue their Giro. Can't see Kreuziger staying away.

    Basso having a leak. That's a good sign. Like when you watch horse racing... if a horse has a dump, back it!

    So does the Liquigas domestique who was pushing him.

    Leading group of four now .. soon to be joined by Kreuziger?
  • MoomaloidMoomaloid Posts: 2,040
    So can Casar win this? He always snatches a tour stage... or is Pirazzi gonna get the stage he probably deserves? OR are they gonna get caught...

    3 min from the leaders to the Maglia Rosa group.

    I thought this climb was meant to be 10km long...

    It is, but the finish isn't at the top.

    The leaders will be going under the 5kms to go banner in a couple of minutes.

    I hope this lights up - been pretty censored to be frank.

    You mean the climb is 10km but they arent riding 10km of the climb?

    Yes, they've already been over the finish once and were still climbing for 3 km after the line.
  • Pirazzi & Casar under the 5kms to go banner...

    That graphic appears to show the climb at 3kms in length

    The hardest bit is before the finish though. It's a tough climb in the heat.
  • afx237viafx237vi Posts: 12,630
    This is not looking good for Cav's jersey hopes.
  • Gap at 1'51 now
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Only do the whole climb on the first "circuit" so to speak. If Pozzo is going to do something today he better do it soon, he's running out of road.
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Attacking with a few km out is not going to net the seconds needed against Ryder............eggs in one basket for tomorrow?!

    It's about 6 or 7 from the village and a pretty consistent gradient.

    Rodriguez almost constantly out of the saddle now...
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Big ring grinding by Kreuziger. Is it going to be his stage?
  • MoomaloidMoomaloid Posts: 2,040
    Ryder looks like he just wants to launch one...
  • inkyfingersinkyfingers Posts: 4,400
    J Rod to attack in last KM, catch the break, win the stage and gain a handful of seconds?

    Maybe not....Scarponi goes.

    Stage is a major fail.

    Contador would have attacked and lit them up a few km ago. Champions ride to win on the offensive.

    Suddenly a very small group.
