Perhaps Boonen can stand a chance in a slightly weaker field like this ?
That is somewhat true. The "3" categories are Cats A & B, Cat C and Cats D & E. So you can see in true ever-ambiguous Italian style, there are 5 categories within the 3 categories.alspacka said:There are only 3 categories I think, which should be fairly clear cut. Flat, hill, mountain. 50, 25, 15 points.
Unless I misunderstand...
So they were just 4 indeed. But enough to make all bigger names happy the way they shared victories + red jersey as a consolation prize for Nizzolo...PeterB said:Let's see how the racing develops. But I do not expect more than 4 full-bunch sprints. To me that seems quite a few, from the perspective of a sprinter who must survive all the climbing in between. Or can this be considered a typical number of sprints per Giro?Netserk said:7 sprint stages now makes it "so sprinter-unfriendly that it is a little wonder that there are so many of them" I guess only the 2004 Giro will satisfy you.
