    Plenty getting cuts and road rash seen to there too. 3 abandons so far resulting from the crash. Van Emden looked to be the worst off. Only 5km into the stage here when it was stopped.

    🚴‍♂️

    giro-d-italia-2021-stage-15-climb-f6f831e93a.jpg

    Betting:-
    Peter Sagan 3/1
    Alberto Bettiol 14/1
    Davide Cimolai 16/1
    Fernando Gaviria 22/1
    Mikkel Honore 22/1

    So Sagan a heavy favourite.

    Can someone explain to me the idea of blocking the road please? I understand why certain teams do it to let the brake get away but how does it fit into the rules? I imagine that its in the UCI rules that you aren't allowed deliberately block another rider

    What a ****e stage for a Sunday, why isn't Monday's stage on today for the weekend TV viewers?

    its not the greatest but need a big stage teh day before the rest day and theyd probably kill the riders giving them 2 big days in a row
