The least unexpected result of today is some posters going :



in light of Landa massively outperforming expectations

If you watched Zakarin's Romandie TT, it was pretty clear that if you only added a bit of rain, he would be crashing multiple times. His bike handling is atrocious.
this. possibly worse and uglier than froome. he got what was coming to him

any sky rider doing well = no justice in the world lol. grande landa :)
But it's almost true. Sky just do everything right, they fix every weakness in no time, in a sport where most others struggle to just maintain one single good thing.

That si so untrue ...SKY riders like EBH , Cummings, Konig, etc did not get any better

People have selective bias against SKY riders...
Sitisou put in a great ride on Thursday now he has left SKY

BTW ages = all winter long

This forum is mad
One day rider A shows a good performance ..he is now unbeatable and others are rubbish
Next day Rider B is very good and now he is going to win everything and rider A hasn't a chance

Madness

Man, Brambilla with that disgusting overnight transformation.
Don't think you've been paying attention if you think that's an amazing overnight transformation.

1) He's put in decent TT's before with nothing at stake.
2) Jersey gives you wings.
3) Parcours suited him.
4) Weather especially suited him too.

I'm not in the least bit surprised by his result here.

exactly, just look at riders like dombrowski, kiriyenka, boasson hagen, lovkvist, edmondson, kennaugh, nieve, konig. all started really flying at sky :rolleyes:

He already said it was sarcasm and it is obvious if you watched Brambillas results this year. He is strong since February :)

In that case... My apologies, I didn't see he said it was meant as sarcasm.
 
this ITT was madness!! the rain ruined everything!!! - yet made it a thrilling experience :D

so mad about Zaka's misfortune :mad:
I sensed Nibs & Don Alejandro would do well - so I'm cool
Landa showed off his ITT marginal gains it seems :eek:
Chavito outdid Uran :eek:

looks like we're about to witness one of the best Giros in recent history :D

What a pointless ITT. Horrible.
Can't do much about the weather
I'm not talking about the weather, I'm talking about making sure the only longish ITT in the race (the MTT doesn't count) was as much of a gymkhana as possible to minimize gaps and engineer a "close race", the holy grail of modern cycling.
Ah well that's fair enough

A GC where no one needs to take serious time on anyone is usually not a recipe for great racing.
You have climbers such as Hesjedal and more serious threads as Chaves, Zakarin and Kruijswijk, its not bad really. That said, I agree with your take on the time trial today
