I think this might be the happiest with a GC I've ended up in a long time, I'd be delighted with any of the top 3 winning at this point

hell given what it would take I'd probably even be delighted if Valverde pulled a rabbit out of his hat too

Valverde started yesterday 3:23 down on GC and at the end of the stage was only 1:48 down. He's reassured he doesn't need to change his tactics. :D

if Kruijswijk wins with a broken rib and a bruised foot he'd put every champion to shame. It's not gonna happen.

If he keeps top 5 it's a true miracle.
If he keeps top 3 he is god
If he somehow improves he is an alien.

I hope they cancel the stage. Chaves would be a better winner than Nibali, Kruijswijk would stay on the podium and Valverde would stay off the podium.
Explain how he is supposed to be a better winner if he needs the stage to be cancelled.

I don't want to see the popular favorite win thanks to the crash of a stronger opponent. A relatively unknown Colombian would be easier to live with.

Whoever wins this Giro will be a true, worthy champ.

Chaves winning would mean resisting the full onslaught of the Astana armada.
Nibali winning would mean snatching victory from the jaws of defeat when 3 days ago his team hinted at DNF.
Kruiswijk winning would be epic after what happened yesterday.
Valverde winning would require a ride for the ages today, what with his high-altitude weakness.
Majka winning would send the forum into a volcanic explosion of rage not seen since Ventoux 2013.

How is the Sporza scheduling for this?

*** because of that garbage ass race in belgium. It always has priority on the giro.

Reason why is cause Wuyts is commentating on it and this guy's enormous ego has to be satisfied
