already impressive in the ITT climbing part. I think he will win stage 19 and maybe more.

Can he win this Giro?:eek::D
Either SKY bring us into future or bring us back ten years. Only time will tell.

Fantastic ride by him today. I had him down as a top 10, but if he continues riding like this maybe he could get a podium.

There's still a difference between 5th in a freezing giro mountain stage once, and doing this.

Aru wasn't far away from Guerinis time today, Nice. (I use your climbing times link, so I need you to post frequently, so I can look at it) ;):p

Incredibly impressive, definitely traces of Nibali there... but he's better than Nibali was at that age.

What a weird Giro we're having, not idea who's going to be the strongest next.

Fabio my friend ima huge fan of yours you are a superstar for the future please go for the record in the Giro and never ride the TDF.You can be unique and just ride Giro/Vuelta for 10 years plus your odds will be far better.
Froome is the man get prepared for this in the next few years he is the best GT rider for long time.

I think nearly everyone is a fan of Aru after that
David Walsh:
We're 3 years into the Froome story. At the 3 year point into my investigation into Armstrong I had 6 people in his team who told me he doped.
I haven't had one person who has given me anything to go on... I certainly believe his claims.
