Yeah, I'm tempted to up my 5 to a 6 or maybe even a 7 because Dawg and his train were elsewhere. Also, I picked Yates to win in the early poll -- not because he was a favorite of mine but I expected/feared he would do what he did in the first two weeks of the Giro last year . . . and keep doing that in week 3. So the lack of Yates dominating made it a better Giro for me. All subjective, of course.red_flanders said:Gave it a 5. It was fine, I enjoyed it as always. Didn't have any particular magic for me this time, no big drama, no big standout stages. For me a 5 is an enjoyable, watchable race. I mean, it's the Giro. Hard to do worse than a 5, it's just such a beautiful race.
Actually I should have given it a 7. No Froome. Light years more enjoyable.
