that sucks.

i have exams on the 22nd,23th,24th and 26th, technical drawing, analytic mathematics 2, non metallic materials and themodynamics

i must say tho that my second semester exams season starts 1 week before the tour and it end in the middle of the third week on the best case scenario or a full week after the end of the tour on the worst case scenario.

Oh poor you. Exams.during the bore de france what a tragedy

here we have exams during the giro.

Also don't know if Portugal stands on this but i know some countries in Europe like.Belgium allow you to fail or even just not turn up for exams and then take retakes when you feel. Here the giro exams are the be all end all. No second chances. Everything goes into.them

Guardini will come here with the legs.

Whether or not he survives some of these stages is another story.

Good little stage previews up on youtube.

Here's stage 1 to get you started http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dk4x3ymoe8c

Once there you can select the other stage videos from the suggestions menu.
