A glorious day of sunshine made for excellent viewing on Stage 5 of the Giro today.

Topped off with stage win number two for Mark Cavendish.

After a brilliant lead out by Team Sky, he sprang from 150 metres out and was never getting caught!

Last 5km

I’m sure today’s win will take some of the sting out of this…

More sympathy for Taylor Phinney today, caught up in the pack when Lucas Haedo was distracted by talking to another rider (resulting in the most pathetically pointless crash!) he had a mad chase to get back to the bunch only to very nearly get wiped out by a passing team car! Let’s hope his luck improves tomorrow.

And finally…

Best pic of the day! Daddy & Delilah Grace. Wonderful.
