196km, red jersey winner Nizzolo must be desperate for his first giro win... Mezgec is out so even fewer teams aiming for a sprint finish so could be a breakaway...

    20km from bergamo, 40km from lake Como? Give over.

    By extension Swansea is 5 minutes away from somewhere magnificent, but still a dump... Middlesborough is close to very pretty coastline, yet is a bog hole... and Sunderland... I find the Pianura Padana uninspiring and I come from very close to it

    Beating heart of Italy, that region!

    Good. I think bikes being coloured pink or yellow are awful.

    I think it's Ok for the final stage when you've basically won. Something for the bike sponsor to have at their HQ. Still looks bad though.

    I'd prefer if it were all pink. Pink and celeste.... :(

    He hasn't ridden that bike in the race yet. Or at least I haven't seen any photos of him on it...

    Yep that's fair enough as a celebration. Is it something that's relatively modern? I can't remember seeing pictures of Hinault and Merkcx riding yellow bikes.

    That's just a technology issue.

    Was thinking about the finish... from Brescia onwards... good to see Cunego looking like a proper man now

    Mosquito land in summer, fog-fest in winter... I spent my university years in the flat part of Lombardia

    Im really enjoying this Issue of the Giro, great scenery, aggressive riding and epic reason for duff performance from Nibali. :lol:
  • Vino'sGhostVino'sGhost Posts: 4,129
    this is my kind of stage.............down hill.....
  • Vino'sGhostVino'sGhost Posts: 4,129
    Ive noticed that the trend to deep section wheels seems to be much less this year, even this stage which is mostly down hill and very fast.

    Interesting spot - any picture to back it up?

    Im trying to look at all the teams but in the break its only the tinkoff rider with a deep section, the others are middlish.
  • Vino'sGhostVino'sGhost Posts: 4,129
    ok its hard to tell but i think theres a lot of wheels there that look less than 50mm
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 61,015 Lives Here
    Will look into it after work.

    Curious development if so.

    Just suggested to someone to get some deep ENVE because it looks more pro haha
