Do kids stay home from school on wednesday afternoons in Italy? Over here they get half a day off in the middle of the week. If so, they managed to put the two most boring stages of the first week at the moment most people can watch. Sunday and wednesday. Since kids are at home, not only the kids who are interested in cycling get to see this turd of a stage, but also parents who stay at home to be with their kids, as well as teachers etc who are also at home.
What are you talking about? Children have to watch cycling most days since they and their mothers are at home all day long anyway... :rolleyes:
They are fed up with cycling as much as with football now and crave for the time when they and their mothers will eventually leave the house for more than two hours again on a regular basis...:flushed:
 
The weather today is perfect for cycling.
Shoudl anyone be remotely interested in how it unfolds, I can tell that the situation is as predicted.
A two man break already has one minute advantage after 5km. Bardiani and Androni (Marengo and Tagliani).

Unfortunate then. The stage is very dull without that (or crashes but I hope we don't get those). As is, I'd be expecting a break of 3/4 made up of Androni, Bardiani and Eolo Kometa that dangle out all day and are caught with 10-20k to go. Pretty much like stage 1 really.
Even less in the break than I thought. Eolo were clearly nah this is pointless.
 
Hmmm, don't think Sagan will be third, although I would like him to.

On GCN the expert's tip for the winner is like this:
Two say Merlier,
Two say Ewan,
One for Viviani (Flecha..)
One vote for Gaviria (Holm)

Sorry, my significant other is at work and my kids went to school today in the morning. Don't know the situation in other countries.

Even as a sprint lover, today is pushing the limits of human decency. Due Giuseppe Anonime peddling in a perfectly straight line on totally flat terrain for five hours. If ever there was a day to watch the last 5km only...

(Maybe checking Twitter or the forum a couple of times, just in case the wind picks up)
