Last year the Giro della Valle d'Aosta had a pretty cool finish, look at Terreblanche and everything afterwards.I hope they'll one year have a descent finish to Aosta, my favourite design has been Saint-Panthaléon -> Champremier -> Saint-Barthélémy -> Aosta.
Yea, I tend to think tomorrow is a stage for the break, because the GC leaders will be keeping their powder dry for Tuesday.Almeida is really confusing. Wasn't he a rider who could regularly top 5 a small group sprints? How can he miss so much explosiveness? Or is he just saying to himself "naah, just riding steady 20 kph, don't give a **** about all the attacks"?
About tomorrow's stage, last climb is really weird. The only chance I see for a meaningful gaps is if someone has hard time on Vertogne, which is not unlikely given today's stage.
Buchmann is an interesting card to play though. Maybe he can attack on the last climb if Carapaz is a bit isolated. Cogne should be good for him as well I think?
Isn't it the usual Mortirolo-Aprica jaunt to the finish? If so, then whoever gets a gap on Mortirolo will be dangerous, as on Aprica it will be hard, if not impossible, to get back on terms.

There's going to be a whole lot of tired legs tomorrow.
This feels like it's either going to be carnage with people hurting each other from a long long way out or a bit of a nothing with everyone content to follow a steady train
Don't think it will be because of Tuesday, rest day in Monday after all. It's jut that Cogne is false flat in the last 14 km and you're missing a Mortirolo/Stelvio/Finestre kind of climb before.
