Look if you want, but it sounds great drama to see on tv.

You can see from the winner's (no spoiler although this site's not under the General board's controls) comments that he wasn't sure about the move but that he felt good. I don't know what footage OLN shows but it all comes from the RAI feed. Some of the descending as awesome. On one turn, the lead group of four had three of them unclipping their inside foot to drag on the road.

The winner's put himself on equal footing with the former Maglia Rosa holder going into the big mountain stage on Saturday with today's flat stage a good one to rest and recover. Sidermec team doesn't look good but Alessio's coming good with two in the top four.

Team Fatka's my vote for aggressive team of the Giro. They've been putting people on the front on most stages and finally getting a result. Good to see Sunderland back in action after the past few years.

I'll be in Paris tomorrow for a long weekend. I'll be buying the Gazzetta dello Sport and seeing if I can get any French reaction to Cipo's non-invite.

Interesting that no one commented on the Stage to Terminillo regarding the wheels. Both Garzelli and Pantani were on Lightweights while the domestiques were doing with the normal team issue.
