Sanchez is definitely the Astana rider who's most like Sanchez.

I sense a fuga bidone is coming too. Not sure if tomorrow or Wednesday.

Are riders like De La Cruz or Poels allowed to go in a break?

What would really be fun if there's a big breakaway on the climb, and Chaves joins it last minute

I don't expect that trick to be repeated.

It's worth trying isn't it? Doesn't have to be Chaves. Can also put Yates in there.

what's with the length of these stages btw, this is the 3rd or 4th 220km+ stage. It's almost like a combined classics GT.

More likely Formolo, no? They wouldn't let Chaves go.

I think Formolo will try to get in the break on Wednesday, cause the final suits him more.

If the break is big enough crazy stuff can happen

But the break generally has a lower chance of winning on Wednesday than tomorrow. Tomorrow is one of these days where half the peloton will want to join the break so a gc contender sneaking in the break and really gaining time is a lot more likely tomorrow.

It will be a hard day with temperatures around 12°C and 70-80% of rain. Would be happy if the break takes this, especially an Androni rider, they deserve one stage win here.

I could use some 12 degrees and rain for a change, 26 degrees and no clouds are horrible in this damn apartment.

It's the third and last. Quite short for the longest Giro stage. They are allowed to have two stages longer than 240km (even if the Giro had three in 2009, with the fourth longest being the marathon stage to Monte Petrano [237km, 7h11'54'']).

Jarlinson Pantano should be targeting this. With his climbing ability and a start that is immediately uphill, it should be a formality to get into the break if he wants. Then the reasonably technical finish and the possibility of rain both suit him well.

If only this stage was 80km shorter, it would have serious potential

Nah, 80km longer. Then it would have potential.

Like Froome joining on Kenny's bike to avoid being recognized.
