We had a weekend where Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig won a World Tour race and a rider won a mountainous one-day race with a 90km solo (for Euskaltel, no less), and I was kind of thinking all was right with the world.
I understand why they had to cancel two passes, this looks like your average day in Denmark and thats very unpleasant. Nobody wants to ride in that kind of weather apart from Mads Pedersen and Alexander Kristoff, totally reasonable, trust.
This can only be salvaged with a compulsory Fedaia MTT next year, broadcast from the very start, with Mauro Vegni paying out of his own pocket to mend the road through the Serrai di Sottoguda if need be. Regardless of whose fault it is. He can take some money from Acquarone who also ignored it for years too if he wishes.
Let's face it, if the only live picture you will get from now on is seeing Nibali cross the finish line first 60% of the forum will say this was the best GT stage in three years and nothing could have been done better.
