Could be a fun one.

Up against the Slovenian border

Lumpy with a flat finish - breakaway material surely, esp with the weekend stages ahead.

    Final two descents suposed to be very tricky.

    Pointless stage for the GC... good for a breakaway though
  • 40km in and no break. 10km 'til first climb.

    Should have finished on top of the last climb and could have been a nice stage, this way I fear a procession of Astana and Movistar to the finish

    That's not really a break, more like half the peloton!

    All you need to know is tjialingi is in the break.

    Wellens was attempting to bridge across but I don't know if he made it.

    In the space of a break on Eurosport the gap to the breakaway has come down by nearly 1 minute and 30 seconds

    Astana massed around Nibali & the GC group is getting smaller.

    Some of these motos could be a right nightmare during the descent.

    Not a good day for Nico but teammate Nieve has a lead of over 2mins in the CG group as he heads to the top of the penultimate climb. Looking good.

    Nieve is doing really well to hold that gap

    Nibali now takes front on the downhill
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Nieve gets the stage win after a really hard day, looks like Amador will be in the Maglia Rosa tonight. Visconti meanwhile looks a bit contrite - second on the day, but the MOV team might not be chuffed.

    Nibs moves ahead of Valverde with those few bonus secs.

    Good stage that. Chaves still riding well, despite never seeming to have much support.

    Sky wins a Giro stage! A marginal gain achieved.
    Cue new posting interest.
    Amador in Pink, Jungels in white.

    Another underwhelming stage in this year's phony war ticked off.
    There must be some serious GC action tomorrow, surely?

    I assume the Asylum reckons it's down to a blood bag or something ;)
