once again the winner of a sprint drifts across the road to block a rival. Its about time the authorities started looking at this, happens every close sprint. Need some stewards enquiries like in horse racing!

Meh. Didn't hold his line. But I guess he's partly excused by the organizers putting a semi-turn in the last metres.

Albasini is showing signs of life but I'd like to know what his race schedule is this year.

meh, the sprint was fine, this is road racing. We don't need track type conditions, where every single little thing is investigated.

What happened to Romandie? Once, riders like Contador won stages here, and a Botero secured the overall. Nowadays, Meersman wins stages, and Froome the GC.

Well, you can´t blame the race itself, it´s just the way it is.

Hope for a great stage tomorrow, but with an easier profile, it will suit Meersman again.

And on Sunday, this dog-like looking Sky rider will take coup double, TT and GC.

:(

Der Panzerwagen will put at least 30 seconds into Froome.
Ah, I forgot Tony is here.

So Sunday

Martin
Froome
Talansky

and overall
Froome
Talansky
Martin.

Hopefully. I fear Porte wants to stand on the GC podium, too...

Machado is saying on his facebook these past days that he doesn't have good feelings and has been difficult to follow the pace in the stages.

Enjoy working for Kiserlovsky in Giro... :rolleyes:

Too bad Nizzolo was out, I was hoping for a stage win from him. I am excited to see what he can do in the Giro
 
If the mountain stage is cancelled the overall will be very tight, looking at previous results between Martin and Froome (2011 Vuelta, 2013 T-A). Not sure if Talansky/Porte could sneak the GC though.

Lets hope mountain stage tomorrow though.

They better find a solution otherwise this will turn into another very bad edition of romandie just like last year :eek:
The best solution is a snowplough and some salt in the morning.

Meersman didn't drift, the road made a slight bend.

A poor Romandie for last two years,snoozefests,this year's Tirreno has set the standard on week long stage races although i enjoyed Oman and Paris-Nice was pretty good too.Does throwing in a classics type stage make a race or am i only saying that because it prevents some teams setting an infernal pace on the front of the peloton.;)
