Are you serious?
We've had next to zero GC action mano-a-mano, and we are stage 11. The Gran Sasso stage was a dud, we've hardly had any spectacle in breakaways (yesterday as an example), almost all of the 'excitement' came from crashes. No, this Giro has not been good at all so far.
Still much more enjoyable than the crashes and the covid.
TBF; everything is more enjoyable than crashes and covid.
Was he fiddling with his rear derailleur while riding, like we saw him do last week?
Maybe he was trying to remove a newspaper from his wheel.
