Don't get so worked up... Let the Aussies have their fun.

When Gesink jumps away from Evans like he doesn't exist on the Tourmalet this July, we'll all be laughing.

:cool::cool::cool:

haha win :D

Anywhu, who cares who mollema lost to, this race is great for his progress. And he has proven (so far) to be the strongest youngster in the mountains. A successful giro so far. No excuses needed.

Basso has won himself the Giro.

Game, set and match, Ivan Basso.

Well hell, that's it then. Might as well cut through the formalities and call it a race. Nothing in the remaining stages can change a thing.

@everyone who replied to my post regarding the final TT

In the first TT, Basso lost 21 seconds to Evans in 8,4 kms, so I can't see why he can't lose 40-50 seconds in 15 kms. I don't think the 4 km climb at 4-5% changes that.

Hahaha Cadel stuffing up. I seem to recall every single Evans lover saying he would rip this apart and the course would suit him and that no one would match him.

Good to see.

Who'd you have for the win?

Is the picture gone? Can I look now?

My cat was on the desk looking sleepy when I refreshed the page.
She made some otherwordly shriek and ran.
 
well it's still everything possible. evans is the favourite now, because basso will lose time to him AND porte in the last itt. arroyo has good chances to defeat the maglia rosa until the end, maybe even porte could take the overalll, if he beat him in the itt and isn't lose time to evans anymore. and: sastre could always force an attack like simoni did in 2005 closing his 3minutes gap. and vino would always try to attack if he could, it doesn't matter how far away he is. that could bring some of the others in buig big problems.

It's the dutch way. They are a sensitive bunch.


maybe that might be the case but evans will eat up all the supposable time lost in a tt and more!

It won't happen dude. Since when has Gesink been the head Rabo rider in a GT before Menchov and in no less than Dennis target GT for the year? Not going to happen this year. Gesink is Menchov's mule in the mountains. Gesink has to be ahead of Menchov to be ahead of Evans and that is not going to happen this year.

It is in this Giro.

Nothing is impossible in this Giro. Wiggins attacking in the mountains? Cadel Evans crossing a finish line with his hands in the air? GC hopefuls attacking for a scant few seconds on what would otherwise be a sprinter's stage?

It isn't a technical course. It strong and in-form riders will do well here.
No denying that Basso has grown stronger as the race has done on.

I do not think he will lose more then 30-45 seconds. But I do not think it will come to that..

I don't think Evans would want to risk it given he should have done similar things twice in the TDF.

Evans should attack in the final few km's and try to gain 20-30 seconds in one of the 2 mountain stages, if he does that he seals a giro win for himself.
