Start somewhere in Switzerland and you could make that a one-day Classic based on the second half alone. Put it in the Lombardia build up. People will ride.

Something from yesterday got me thinking....someone mentioned that one of the teams had lights on their bikes for some sort of marketing reason. Would it be feasible to have a nighttime non-technical time-trial of a similar length to yesterday's? Has anything like that every happened? I remember there was a Vuelta stage a couple of years ago that was in the evening, which was quite good, but what about a full-blown afterdark stage where the riders have got to have lights? It would be like scenes from Le Mans. I appreciate there's a safety issue, but if it's a non-technical time trial I think it could be minimised.
In the same way the points are worked out in other gt´s. I actually don't know how that works but as far as I know its normal that mountain points are given to the riders in time trials.lemon cheese cake said:How will the points be worked out for the climbs?
It's normally done with the Time Splits. So it's probably best to get rid of the Time spits, and just put them with the climbs.Gigs_98 said:
There is no deadline for the jury. Ofc it will be announced before the showcase starts.Gigs_98 said:How much time do we have before the jury gets announced. Maybe I will apply to become part of it, but firstly I want to do a little bit of brain storming to find some good ideas for the race, to do a route myself. Only if I don't have good ideas I would apply for the jury
In Italy!!! You are an evil so-and-so. Giving us a whole Tour to think up ideas for a GIRO. You of all people should know how almost limitless the possibilities are!!!Eshnar said:The time has come for my race design challenge, people!
The idea is fairly simple. As you surely know, the 2017 Giro will be in fact the 100th edition. As such, everyone expects a route which has to be "meaningful" for the history and tradition of the Giro and/or Italy itself.
You'll have to design your own 100th Giro.
The rules are the following:
- Start and finish must be placed in Italy
- Can't have more than 2 stages abroad
- All the stupid UCI constraints are in effect. I want a believable route. If you need, you can ask the jury for an exception.
- Transfers of more than 75 kms can be made only during rest days
That's actually a problem Do you really have no time (not even in the evening/night)? In the end everybody would have a 24h window to post the stage.fauniera said:I usually don't have time to post on workdays, so i'm out. Nice idea, though.
Application duly notedMayomaniac said:It would be my third Giro, so maybe I'll apply to become part of the jury.
