They actually race real mountains in the Giro when climbers can get back time - Why not have an 80km ITT in stage 3 and then'll you have only 2 contenders for the yellow jersey - Then wait for the whinging ?hrotha said:Blah blah blah. Watch the 2015 Giro.yaco said:You cant have long ITT's in today's environment when gaps on the mountains are marginal - Imagine if you have a 60km ITT in stage 2 or 3 ? You'd have 2 contenders left for the yellow jersey I've always proposed a TTT and an ITT to test the strength of teams - Something like a 20km TTT and 30km ITT ( but not a pancake flat course ).movingtarget said:The obvious one is an increase in the TT kms and more MTFs. They will probably keep one short mountain stage. TTT seems to be out of fashion which is a good thing and probably go for a more traditional short prologue. Sometimes finishing on a descent can be exciting but if the finish is a long way from the top of the final climb it usually ends up as a stalemate and a waste of a stage for many fans.
