Ah the 2014 Giro. Just having 5 HC MTFs surely must be a good route no?
"Hey, look at this mountain stage for the giro we made. We start with a really hard first category climb before a slightly easier 2nd category climb and then finish on a 1st category mtf"
"Interesting, where are the profiles for the other mountain stages?"
"No no no, that's the profile for all mountain stages"

They had so many I always forget they had Gavia/Stelvio in that Giro
 
I see the 2018 Vuelta is not very popular around here.
Any particular reason, apart from being the first without Berto? I don't remember it being particularly worse than the others, but I'll admit most Vueltas are kind of a big blur in my mind.

Was very boring in my opinion. Only the Andorra stages were good. I don't remember much about the first 2 weeks for example.
 
This forum really dislikes 2014 Tour for some reason.
Also, 2018 Tour in elimination zone.
Well, 2 from the 3 favorites were eliminated early. Nibali was on a crazy form, as did Froome and Contador. After the inital time loss, they would have to attack a lot to take that time back. The dauphine 2nd stage hyped us a lot I guess...
Also it was really one-sided.

But the first week was excellent and the mountain stages were decent as well, with good racing behind Nibali. I don't think it was worse than 2013 or 2015 Tours for example. I would rate 2014 Tour similar to them.
