Boom should do well: “I felt good, but when I realised we were not going to hold on until the finish line I decided to save energy for tomorrow’s time trial.”

Don't get your hopes up, Cancellara will dominate this together with Martin.

It's only 9.2 km so I don't see any reason why he wouldn't stand a chance.

He finished 9 secs back to Cancellara on the same course 2 years ago, maybe he can get close again.

But if I had to bet it would be on Tony Martin. He tore up the TTT.

Who was the last rider to do the T-A Giro double?

Froome will take a few seconds out of Nibali I reckon but nowhere near enough to win, Contador will overtake Purito to finish 3rd.
 
TT could have some interesting results after such a hard day today. Phinney was the only guy who missed the time cut because I guess he really wanted to do the TT and didn't bail with everyone else.


From his twitter:

After all my grupetto mates threw in the towel w/130km to go I continued on alone in the rain attempting to make time cut. No results yet...

Probably the most trying day I've ever had on a bike. When I wanted to stop, I thought about my Dad and I didn't quit. I made it, 37min down

I thought abt my Dad because I know if he could be me on this day, healthy and disease free, he would spend 6.5 hrs fighting to finish too.

And now I'm on the massage table crying like a little girl. So many times I wanted to cry today, it's all coming out now... Emotional day!!!

Officially out of time limit. Rules r rules and I wouldn't want them bent just 4 me. I already did the math so it isn't a surprise. Onwards!
 
a bit heartless not to make a little exception for phinney :eek:

i know rules are rules but it's not like they are enforced when a big group decides to be lazy and just chill their way to the line, so they could certainly make an exception when a rider makes such an huge effort

Can we really say that the TT specialists like Martin or Fabian will win it tomorrow after this stage?

I don't know, and if it rains, it's really unpredictable.
