I love these stages... they're a bit like LBL, and there are a lot of tactics - they can be important or insignificant depending on how they're raced.

BTW, it's *HOT* here in Italy today - it was warm last week, but today it's really the first day with really high temperatures... I saw a thermometer saying 34 on my ride today.

Damn, Sastre decimated the chase group. Only riders left are Di Luca, Menchov, Pellizotti, Leipheimer, and Seeldraeyers. What a great performance from Pokémon! :D

Basso and Sastre, the guys with the diesel engines, can put Rabo in trouble. Smart today.

Gotta go today, before we have another damned procession to the end of the Giro with the leaders wheel-sucking their opponents.

Eurosport guy says di Luca is looking sunken eyed. Early attacking in Giro may start to be taking a toll.
He's barely hanging in there, but soon it will be all downhill.
Eh, scratch that.

I love this Giro!

Basso and Garzelli barely gained time on the 2 leaders in the last 3 or so kilometres, and even lost time to the maglia rosa group. Guess in the end their effort wasn't as powerfull as it first seemed?
