Guys

Riders do indeed make the race

And the races made by riders in flat stages gets worse every year
Organizers should do everything they can to absolutely nuke flat stages in GT's, especially in the Giro where theres no wind and theres opportunity to go inland and go over some hills. Especially now that they broadcast these stages from the start. Its so predictable and boring for everyone involved

Yeah no excuses. Also feels like breaks arent even interested in racing.

The ideal Giro has a singe sprint stage on stage 12 in the Giro which is crossing the entire Po plain in a single stage because it forces them to hurry to make the start of the next day in time
 
I say more. They never rode a race bike for 100 km two days in a row and experience the leg pain you can have the second day.

It's not a Nintendo or Playstation game. These guys deserve also days with stage not so hard.
Theyre the professionals lol, its hilarious to compare them to recreationals to protect them from criticism.

Also, most of them have had 3 really easy days already
 
Could an average healthy/fit guy under 40 decked out in pro kit keep pace with the peloton on a day like this? I would think so, but maybe that's nonsense, I don't know.
Yes, of course. Maybe he would have troubles surviving the small climb at the start of the stage, but otherwise, I don't think there would be a problem before things heat up near the end.
