    A stage of 2 halves, with a relatively flat first half followed by a very bumpy second half! Likely to go to a breakaway but that climb to the finish (4.3km @ 9.5%) could also lead to some gaps between the GC contenders, if one of them really pushes it. With a sprint stage coming tomorrow they may well be inclined to give it a go.

    Had a feeling it could be one of those mad Giro days we've seen in recent years when the break takes ages to get away.

    That looks like a strong break to me, one that will stay away.

    Weather seems to be wreaking havoc with the live pictures, even earlier the quality was poor. Like the good/bad old days.

    at least I'm not getting any pangs to be on hoidays in Italy looking at the weather


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,188 ✭✭✭✭ Enfilade


    Rain seems to have that effect on pictures in Italy or maybe I'm just not recalling the wet days in France and Belgium?

    Hatch seems to think that the weather will suit CJJ more than Taaramae, cos, ya know, Estonia is known for its sub tropical climate

    Always love a stage where the weather in Ireland is better than the weather on TV :o

    Happens in France and Spain but more so in the high mountains. Not unusual to be starting at the finish line get washed out of it on the tour of catalunya
