Will it be a sprint?

If you are a rider that is constantly crashing you must ask yourself if something is wrong with your skills!! many riders in the past have not been able to cope in the European peloton because of lack of these skills. That is part of the race.
Yeah, it's so easy to do much when an idiot (Dombrowski) just barges in, crashing directly in front of you because he doesn't have eyes.

Sorry, no. Although I agree in general that bike handling is part of the job, this was a really dangerous finale after such an easy stage - many, many harsh bends, roundabouts, lots of narrowings and divisions, constantly roads got narrow, than broad again.
If you know there is no way out of a bunch sprint anyway, why then have such last 15k? You KNOW 100% that crashes will happen. In a GT that's just not necessary.
 
That finish line camera already zooming in on Nizzolo's face because the camera man thought he would win just to film how he is shaking his head while Ewan crosses the frame celebrating, perfectly sums up Nizzolo's career.
I don’t know about that. A million second places at the Giro has to be pretty frustrating, but his career as a whole is very good for a sprinter who just isn’t as fast as a load of other sprinters.
