    Let's be honest if pog attacked at the bottom he could have won

    When you cycle the high passes of cycling the spirits of the mountain rock whisper his coming .....a quite voice on the wind from far off yet paradoxically feels close

    Every team seemed to have a go at reducing the gap then knocking it off and letting him/them go again.

    Pog looked like he was warming down

    Really hard to say to be honest. A highlights package might be a better option.

    One of the things I like about him is that, definitely on stage 15 and I believe on other days too, he rode with neither a powermeter nor a pulsemeter, so was 'old school', relying on 'feeling'. I imagine without meters is true for at best only 20% of the other riders.

    Apparently he said before the Giro he would focus on stages 8 and 15 and in both cases he was then in the break but caught late on, so he must have decided to also give stage 17 a go.

    His trainer is old-profi Michele Bartoli, and his training ground in Winter is the east end of Lake Constance.
