What we have here are a group of people who just love to be pessimistic

And who you would think have never seen a GT ....Everyone has a bad day and if this is Nnibali's then I would take that

Remember Carapaz has not had one yet

I still stand by my believe the race will be won in Verona and Friday & Saturday are the days for Nibali ...not a one climb that's suits Carapaz
And Landa is the main threat

Addy Ingles is about 1 million times more positive than you lot
Its not over till its over
+1

Also -- how is Bauke Mollema ahead of Lopez? By rights Lopez should be in 2nd-3rd-4th right now. He's a really strong rider who might not be applying his skills in the most efficient way.
Because Bauke has been better so far?

If you cannot time trial or descents like an amateur, you reap what you sow
 
Great win for Peters. Keeps looking better for Movistar. Mollema has impressed me in this race. No one picked him to win or make the podium but i hope he hangs onto his fifth place. Nibali and Roglic had heavy legs. Good to see Chaves at the front again after being out for a long time.

Everyone saying it's over lol :rolleyes: everything can still change, Giro 2016 and 2018 docet.
Indeed. Just one week ago nobody mentioned Carapaz and Roglic had won the Giro already.
I remember after the second TT everyone was ready to hand the victory to Roglic. I'm sure he'd take it over having to do the mountains. :)
 
Wiggo say on #thebreakaway that he is not happy Carapaz may go to INEOS we as wont see him thrive and will miss attacking riding as he rides the train
Of all the riders to benefit from the train Wiggo got the most out of it i'd say

Will be hard for Carapaz to win if he's got like 3 riders ahead of him in the pecking order.

He readily admitted he benefited from it, but Team Ineos/Sky are even stronger now
 
Maybe Carapaz should have waited after the giro to sign a new contract, no doubt his value will have risen significantly. On the other hand it must be a good thing for Ineos since they got a good deal for a possible GT winner.

2012 was the worst though on that first MTF, I think they had 5 of 8 left.

Well Froome,Porte and Rogers at the time were better climbers than Wiggo

We only get good racing if INEOS have a weak team ....God help us at the Tour with Froome, Thomas, Bernal,Poels, Kwaito, etc

And for ever more with Bernal,Shivkov, Sosa, Dunbar ...and Carapaz
