Was a short stage and more difficult ones are still to come, but he's still looking good. In particular, poopgate appears to have been an unfortunate random incident as opposed to a weakening

Not much you can do when the best time trialist in the race is also the best climber
Among to the top 10, Dumo is the best time trialist by a mile and a half. If he keeps the pink until Stage 20, this is in the bag.

Impressive ride today and there is hope that the Dutch curse will finally be crushed.So far everything is going according to plan.
 
Now that he's won the Giro, does he go for the double in the Vuelta?
The other question is whether he will be aiming for the Tour next year. If so, he might be best served looking for a better team...

I'm not gonna celebrate the victory until the last man finishes his TT in Milan and Dumoulin is atop the podium. That said, monster ride today.
Me also. I'm not at all confident until the final stage is done.

Remember how Menchov fell in the TT? Similar situation. Menchov was isolated almost all Giro and did everything himself. Also closed shop the final ITT, but it almost went wrong.

Tom shouldn't whine about that. Pretty normal tactics. For a guy who wasn't angry at his oppenents for attacking after he took a dump, this reaction is pretty poor.
It was funny, lets face it he probably really feels they did dump on him when he took one :lol:

He has to be careful only in one aspect now.He has to synchronise pee-pees with the bunch or at least with Pinot and Zaka. One does not simply rely on Movi and their dirty tactics.

Uh-oh Nibali just said to RAI that despite Tom being very strong, and the best until now, he should not be saying those stuff about them losing the podium because he also hasn't won yet and karma might bite back.

Nibs witch-doctors are already performing rituals as we speak...
 
Nibali on Tom: "he's great, he controlled very well, he's the strongest of all. But he sounds a bit too cocky. He can't ask us to work for him. What does he want? That me and Nairo pull for him until Milano and then thank him? He hopes we lose the podium, why should I care about getting 2nd, 3rd or 5th? He could lose the podium as well if he keeps riding this way."

Beef!

But he also said: "He's a very good guy, he's honest, straightforward. Everybody respect him. When I won in Bormio he came to congratulate me. When we race we all get mean. It's normal.

Congratulations with the Giro. I think he will win tomorrow and the flat time trial. That's four stages. Two ITT and two MTF.

Froome is waiting for you, Tom. He is waiting.
