I think we had similar weather when Formolo won with a long range attack, right?38-39 degrees expected in Imola for the Italian RR on Sunday.
That is weird. It owuld have been nice to watch, if anyone could challenge the almighty Ganna.No live coverage for the Italian ME ITT, that sucks!
You have Ganna, Affini, Sobrero, Cattaneo, Bettiol and Moscon, probably the most stacked field that I can remember. Ganna also is a potential big star, so no Idea why you wouldn't show the TT live.
The TT isn't easy, 45km with 3 short climbs:

No idea why they will start earlier.That is weird. It owuld have been nice to watch, if anyone could challenge the almighty Ganna.
Why is Frapporti starting later than Boaro, Tiberi and Cattaneo?
But he rode GC at the Giro?"Resultado elite masculina
João Almeida (Deceuninck-Quick-Step), 36m20s
Rafael Reis (Efapel), 37m14s
José Neves (W52-FC POrto), 37m33s
Nelson Oliveira (Movistar Team), 37m44s
José Gonçalves (Delko), 38m52s"
A sad day, João Almeida out of the most important race of the year.
Yay Stanek, looks like he and Hanna will have matching jerseys now!A few non-surprises: Maví García, Elisa Longo Borghini and Christine Majerus all retained their national titles. Majerus only had to ride 9.8 km to win, whereas Anniina Ahtosalo had to complete 17, Amalie Christensen 20 and Laura Lizette Sander 21 just to become junior champions in Finland, Norway and Estonia respectively.
Stanislav Bazhkou, who came second on the ITT, did one better today and was crowned the new Belarusian RR champion.
Sobrero is really moving up in the world of TTers, as is Affini.
On the first intermediate the situation was like this: Filippo Ganna 22'27"; 2. Mattia Cattaneo +20"; 3. Edoardo Affini +22"; 4. Matteo Sobrero +30".What happened to Ganna? Did he want to give it to someone else since he's wearing the rainbows?
Sobrero finally got his win.
Ganna also had an altitude camp on the Stelvio to prepare for the Olympics (Moscon was also there), so he probably started too strong and still wasn't used to the heat. Sobrero destroyed everyone in the final part of the TT, even Affini lost more than 1sec per km.On the first intermediate the situation was like this: Filippo Ganna 22'27"; 2. Mattia Cattaneo +20"; 3. Edoardo Affini +22"; 4. Matteo Sobrero +30".
On the second intermediate: 1. Matteo Sobrero 34'14"; 2. Filippo Ganna +01"; 3. Edoardo Affini+05"; 4. Mattia Cattaneo +13"
Then in the last part of the TT Ganna bonked and lost 45 seconds to Sobrero
