Change all the stages left to ___/, maybe at least have more riders finish safely, going to be *** but it's been *** anyway😡

I know some would still find a way to crash without bunch sprint or descent, though.
What a sh*tshow this Giro has been so far. Hardly any exciting racing, 11 stages in, and GC contenders (and others) taken out left, right and center by covid and crashes. With the weather likely continuing to be wet, this destruction derby is not set to stop any time soon.
TGH dropped out of the race due to poor bike handling skills. Which is an important part of cycling. Just because someone falls a few metres in front of you doesn't automatically mean you have to fall too. Better that robots don't always win...

Are we getting more crashes like that in the wet from disc brakes? I cannot tell

Maybe more eficient braking (less distance to diminish speed) in low friction surface like wet tarmac leads to more slides than a less eficient braking that occurs in higher distance?

Disc brakes come from sports where the surface has high friction like MTB or CX and thus contribute naturally with forces to break the speed.
