Usually we would be discussing how cav isn't in good shape because he failed to win the first sprint stage again, but that's not the case this time. will he make it 2 in a row? that is the question.

Is there anybody there to challenge Cav?
Sadly, I doubt it.
We're probably looking at top 5 placings, Bos, Farrar etc.
Can Thor get top 5 or even podium??

I just hope we don't lose any GC guys in the inevitable crashes tomorrow.
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

Yeah! Give my country a change, would ya!

It's gotta be a weird stage though.
Dubbed the WW Special it is planned to be ridden in homage of Wouter Weylandt. However, after the tragic passing of Horsens Mayor, Jan Trøjborg, the Giro will also remember him.

Hope that Tyar Farrar takes this stage, seeing as it is is being ridden in hommage of Wouter Weylandt, and Farrar will realy want to win it because of that. But unless Cav has some kind of problem its hard to see past him for the win.

Hope so too, but he messed up his pre-season thinking he'd make it as a classics man.

He does that every year. And he never has much to show for it.

Well it worked for me today. Then again, my time zone also helped. Up at 0600hrs MDT, back to sleep at 0730hrs.

[my edit] 0730hrs MDT was when the peloton was about 70km from the finish FWIW...

What are you complaining about? This is basically you having 2 hours to play - spot Rujano.
