    Lived and worked in Verona for s few months and the climb ain't all that. And coming from me that means something. Has corners so a bit technical but looking dry as a bone. Will landa defend 20 odd seconds from Roglic is the race of the day.

    7 seconds up at this time of the day doesn’t seem that great.

    He's making a habit of this and can't blame Sky this time.

    If he'd rode yesterday for time rather than stage he may have had podium... as it happens he's ended up with neither!

    Happy with a Carapaz win. Would have liked to have seen Roglic do Nibali for second but that was never happening.

    Decent edition without being spectacular this year.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.
  • A well deserved win for Carapaz, but I don’t exactly think this Giro is going to go down in history as a classic one.

    I found it a bit dull by comparison to recent years. But still more appealing than the tour.

    Congrats to Carapaz. It's a shame Dumoulin crashed out and Nibali, Yates and Roglic turned up in name only.
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 7,107
    Strange race. not a classic spectacle for sure but interesting . The parcours was not right.

    Dunbar stood out As potential. There was some decent breakaway stage finishes.

    Cheers to BS Richn95 and RC for threads

    Don't forget Bernal. I'm sure he'd have played a major role if he was there.

    Below average Giro.

    Was busy having a lovely time in the sun with a bbq and the fam and i didn’t even think once about the final mountain stage untill I got into bed.

    Very unlike me when it come to the Giro.

    Oh yes, I did forget. I'm sure you're right. I bet he's kicking himself for that training accident. If Ineos sign Carapaz then they're going to have a job deciding who's leading the team for the Giro next year maybe.

    I'm not sure I have seen any mention of the fact that Nibali beat Roglic in the itt...strange times!

  • I did like the roll into the stadium at the end for each rider - always think there should be recognition for any rider completing a grand tour.
