Men in Pink- Giro
« on: May 15, 2017, 07:01:03 PM »


See Quintana took the lead yesterday before the first rest day.

Dumoulin will be looking to take the lead in the ITT tomorrow, the rest of Week 2 is relatively easy with the bulk of the climbing saved for the third week.

Hopefully we will see some impact on the race from Thomas or Yates. .

Shame about Gs crash Simon. Someone is going to get killed if the Grand Tour caravans and police outriders don't get a grip...

Yes Mark , crashes seem to be the bane of top British riders . The good news is that G is made of stronger stuff and came second in today's TT. .

GOOD ON GERAINT. .

ETA now up to 11th in the GC. .
