Giro stage 21: beyond the **spoiler**

No-one bothered and nothing happened.

But victory snatched from Nizzolo after a steward enquiry.
Win to Arndt - who I picked for PTP in the certain knowledge that Nizzolo wasn't going to win.

    PTP uses its own independent adjudicators surely? Nizzolo's sprint looked OK to me and that has nothing to do with my pick.

    Felt most sorry for Modolo really since he was the one that lost out (maybe).

    Was a bit harsh I thought

    Hope ThomThom is alright.
    Lars Bak got pretty smashed up :-(

    Well harsh - and nothing to do with my PTP pick!

    It looked pretty clear live that Nizzolo had seriously impeded Modolo. The shame is that Arndt was well beaten by Nizzolo, but I suppose the stage can hardly be given to Modolo and Nizzolo should face some sanction.

    I thought it was borderline but the jury probably got it right - I'd have liked to have seen an overhead shot though. The most telling thing was that Nizzolo looked under his shoulder before moving - that suggests he knew Modolo was coming and decided to block him.
