The way things are going, it could be the shortest Giro on record, with all these mountain stages shortened due to snow. Hope there's a big defrost before the start.
You talking about Giro d'Italia?
There's still a month left before they hit the Alps and it was very warm until a couple of days ago. I actually think there's very little snow up there compared to previous years.

Coolio, I know this is the Croatia thread, I got a bit mixed up with reading the different threads. They seem to be having a bit of problem with the white stuff in the Tour of Alps. Hope its good for the Giro d'Italia though.

Well the temperatures are expected to stay low in the whole region for the next 3 weeks. Can do a lot of damaging to a lot og races including Giro.

Here in Poland we seem to have cold springs for several years in row. Do people notice similar thing for other parts of Europe?

Autumns are rather warm on the other hand.
