    Stage is a major fail.

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

    Patience...

    At last, a gap opens... and closes.

    I hope they are dope testing Ryder.

    You'd hope they are testing all of them...

    Scarponi goes again, Basso classic diesel response to get back on.

    Basso playing poker with Rodriguez.

    J-Rod cracking!
  • inkyfingersinkyfingers Posts: 4,400
    Hesjedal goes, followed by Scarponi.....gap to J Rod and the rest!

    Basso is out of gas I think.

    Hesjedal winning the Giro here??

    Ryder needs as much as he can get..,. tomorrow will be even tougher...

    Think so.

    Major fail from Basso. His team-mates will be happy after the past week and half...

    Small gaps still though.

    Kreuziger isn't going to get caught.

    Looking good for Cavendish though. J-Rod doesn't look like winning this.

    Ryder riding away!

    Mad stage

    I'd like Ryder to win

    Ryder 15" down on pink now?
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Garmin car must be going absolutely nuts.

    That went all wrong for the other GC riders..........

    Good on Ryder I guess. Hope JRod can do something tomorrow.........

    Took a while to get going, but that was one of the most brutal last few KMs I can remember.

    Anything can happen tomorrow

    Makes it really interesting. If you recover better it's all to play for.

    It looks flattish on TV but it climbs steeply all the way to the line.

    Congratulations Kreuziger. Went for it and salvaging a stage win is commendable.

    Great ride by Hesjedal.

    J-Rod owes Pozzo a beer or two. Dragged him back into the mix

  • Lets see tomorrow what those last kms have taken out of the legs!

    The reason riders look so cooked is that (I hope) there's nothing iffy in their systems. Let's pray that the days of riders (Bertie / Ullrich / Ricco/ LA ) etc looking fairly fresh at the end have ended

    Kudos to Ryder, great ride.

    Massive fail for Basso. Can't deliver when you've told your team to ride hard on the front for the past two weeks.
