I feel a bit sad for Bahrain. They seem to be so well prepared, taking the race serious and sending a very strong team which is willing to animate. Now already two key members crashed out...

Hope Mohoric is more or less fine (concussion seems unavoidable).

Just noticed that the finish of under 6km at under 6% is categorized as cat 1. Because there's only Cima Coppi above cat 1, it's an equivalent of HC in the Tour.

Guess Arcalis is finally deposed from the worst HC climb categorization ever.
The Giro used to have an 'arrival' category which essentially awarded any MTF >cat.1 status. The beautiful Pescocostanzo stage of 2008, much as though I praised it and enjoyed it as a stage and design, from a GPM perspective it was kind of stupid as it therefore had more points available (15) for the 3km uphill punch than were available for Manghen or Mortirolo (10). This feels like a throwback to that!
