Wheresmy1stgrademathshandbookI'll give it a 4 for the race. Pretty crap weather to start with which probably didn't give the riders too much enthusiasm to race for the first week or so. It got a little better towards the end.
An extra 2 for Remco having to leave the race, which in turn, saved me reading an extra 45 pages for each stage.
An extra 2 for the moaning about this race throughout. Quite laughable some of the comments and brightened my day up.
It became a Twitter thing during the race, probably because the race itself wasn't too exciting.Apparently Ben Stiller is also a cycling fan

In stating your opinion of the race, you take on great responsibility.Everything in this Giro is awful. Even the live coverage and times. Seriously, If someone give more than a 2/10 rate to this race, I will jump from a bridge.
I have it the other way around. I think the riders raced the course the way it was set up, an elimination race all the way down to the last time trial. Why expend energy trying to ride the competition off your wheel in a bunch of mountain top finishes when you have a final climbing race where everyone is on their own? If they have a stage like that it should come at the end of the first week. Desperate attacks to regain time > trying to not lose time before the final decisive day. The GC battle (?) may have been gridlocked for most of the race but looked at as a series of one day races it had a lot of entertainment value. I give the daily racing an 8, the GC race a 3, and the course a 1. For a 4 average.Conclusion: It is all the riders fault. Lol.

So far, comfortably the lowest this forum has rated a GT.
That‘s a cryptic rating system. What if the race was an unwatchable chain of sprint stages? 11, 12, 13? I want reasonable scoring, like @Tonton does.View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8lRKCw2_Pk&ab_channel=StevenBrandt
Anyway I gave it a 4; 1 for each stage I didn't watch.
If I had missed five stages, I would have given it 0.8 for of each of those stages. I just like the number 4 ok. That said, I try to never expect a whole lot from a race, because you can easily get disappointed otherwise.
