Slightly amused by the living flame rogues.

It was an Ulissi type of climb. It wasn't a Landa type of climb. Quintana finishes ahead of Landa - but Landa will be good on steeper climbs.

Fuglsang saying to Danish TV, that the final climb had strong headwind, so no sense in attacking.

Landa's ride was impressive considering the big headwind and it wasn't really his type of climb.

I predicted Ulissi for about five Giro stages. Now that I forgot about him he all of a sudden wins...

Should win from here, no big summit finishes and the TT to end.

UAE seem to have gotten a sliver of hope the past week, after a terrible spring.

That is just crazy, he got caught 200 m from the line, and it wasn’t that steep :eek:
