    Can rely on Bardet for some panache.

    With 5km to race, Torres (COL), Bardet (AGR), Rosa (AST) have 40 secs on the peloton.

    4ks, 29 secs.

    Not a problem for Porte. He can put 30 secs / km into Bardet, former 6th place finisher in the Tour de France.

    3km, 25 secs.

    Porte's boys burning the legs off the rest. Fresh as a daisy Porte starting to break a sweat. Lost 1kg since yesterday evening so watch out for the visible vasodilation.

    Meintjes tries his luck but is brought back. Now Zardini has a go

    Now saying it wasn't Zardini but Pirazzi. Has pure talent Cunego alongside and the featherweight Aussie in tow.

    Pozzo finally realizes he is in a race. Has a small gap with 2km.

    Porte goes under the 1km banner. Got to give it the sprint soon.

    Pozzovivo wins. Porte will still lead.

    Porte decides he doesn't need to go for a stinger. Strange given he is supposed to be so far ahead of everyone else.

    1° Domenico Pozzovivo; 2° Landa; 3° Porte; 4° Bardet; 5° Cunego

    Good work Meintjes.

    Congratulations Pozzo.

    Just watched Rai, or rather Siutsou .
    Very calculated from Porte/Sky.
    Did little but follow wheels.
    In the end, it could have cost him a few seconds to Landa, but fortunately it didn't.
    No real chase of Pozzovivo from anybody.
    The only chase of note was Pirazzi.................on Zardini. :oops:

    All in all, a bit like watching a flat stage pan out on a hill.

  • Joe Dombrowski was 6 mins down yesterday but finished within a minute of the stage winner today. Hopefully these are the first signs of a return to good form for the young lad. Is he down to ride the Giro?

    Morning:

    Bloedy hell though he really is skinny this year. It's like the theory my mum has that there is only so much matter in the world and thus if someone looses weight someone gains it is to be found in the relationship between Porte and JTL. :lol:
    Correlation is not causation.

    Romain Bardet has attacked 140km from the finish in Trentino. Olé!

    Ha! Astana won today. You have to applaud their timing.

    A victory for Contador's unofficial domestique Paolo Tiralongo from a breakaway.

    GC unchanged. Porte wins overall.

  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Excellent, congratulations Tiralongo. Now there is a popular win in the World of Pro Cycling (apart from maybe the Brits and Scandis). Porte just sweeping these GC's up like child's play.
