we won't see much of the stage since RCS hasn't figured out how to enter into the 20th century and bring reliable images in the rain
they are using the same method as everyone else, i.e. a relay plane. In most cases, when we have no pictures is because the plane is not allowed to take off, due to the risk of ice forming on the wings.
This problem in particular happens for obvious reasons more often in May than it does in July or September.
It is also possible that RAI's plane is worse than ASO's, or that airport regulations in Italy are stricter than in other places, I don't know.

Not sure the icing is the issue. If so, the Stelvio stage in 2014 would not have been shown, since it was snowing
 
Would love a second thunderstorm coming out of nowhere towards the end, Arcalis style.
