Too nice a day to be watching TV.

Easy question. At what Kms to go should I start watching the replay?

TIA.

    I went from about 10 and didn't detect that I missed anything

    You missed the beauty of the Dolomites.

    Yeah I switched on at the first intermediate sprint and didn't regret it one bit.

    Definitely worth devoting the time for the beautiful surroundings.

    If it's just the racing, halfway up the last 1st cat

    I thought the fact that G went on a solo for the final 3 climbs was remarkable 😉

    Those who switched on late missed an exceptional first 45kms.
    The race was in bits on the first climb.

    And who’d have thought Cav would bridge across to him and take the stage 🤣

    Might skim through. Tomorrow’s stage is the big trip down memory lane. 😉

    I need an ITV Highlights package for scenery. I won't concentrate enough to catch it on a replay...

    Thanks @pblakeney , I've been on family ferrying and visiting duty all day, and haven't watched any of it, or caught any results - are we still saying 10K is the point to watch from, or would 45 be worth it?

    For race - 10

    Daniel Friebe got me very excited with his stage pod tweet that suggested that the stage went past Vajont. Beloved of millennial GCSE geography pupils everywhere...

    But it didn't...

    It was stunning last July!
    Just one of very, very many. I spent way more time taking photos than first intended. 😉

    Ma raver and myself nearly came to grief on a via ferrata around the Tre Cimi back in the day...

    We then watched a rather epic helicopter rescue of 2 climbers off of the middle one from the hut/rifugio at the top

    First climb was certainly attritional!
    Back to the scenery.....

    Well, that was a stage. Not adding any more in case of spoilers.
    All I will add is that tomorrow's stage will very much be the prettiest.

    Watching the highlights on Discovery Plus. They've got it spot on with the action
