What an absolute corker!!! And that was just the weather.
Add to that the stunning scenery and the inevitable sifting of the pack on a stage packed with BIG mountains, today was a fantastic spectacle!
It was great to see the Maglia Rosa win such an epic stage. There was no real change to the GC today, apart from Roman Kreuziger and Paolo Tiralongo who just didn’t have the legs to stay with the other contenders. The real changes will come in the next few days when we’ll see how the men who pushed themselves to the limit today recover?
Stage 17 Last 20km
Tomorrows stage should be a sight for sore legs though…
Stage 18 San Vito di Cadore-Vedelago 139 km
One for the World Champ? we’ll see if he’s got any zip left in those legs after the last few days!
And finally, a late Happy Birthday to Guillaume Michiels, 77 today.
Still working today, he was massaging legs and looking out for riders at the Berlin Six Day race this year!
