Giro d'Italia 2015 stage - 13
  • Derek Maher

    Wow,The Giro adventure is certainly not boreing.Alberto gave his shoulder a test he could have done without and its ice packs tonight.He did well to grab a fellow team members bike and hammer to the line to limit the loss.Don’t know what Riche was thinking soft pedalling to the finish line.Maybe he thought the crash was within the 3K limit now he is over 5 minutes down I guess his GC ambitions are sunk ?.Fabio Aru can expect a real fight on his hands in the TT and mountain stages.Its going to be a heck of a week ahead for we viewers.

      It did look like he was soft pedalling. He was on a bike that was way too big for him, so i dunno. The TT is going to be interesting.

      Watching Porte struggling to hold his team mates’ wheels after his controversial wheel change the other day tells the true story… I reckon he’s injured, sick or just plain tired.

        Apparently Porte was heard saying his leg is “f@#$&d” to a team mechanic after Stage 13. It will be interesting to see how he does go in the TT, but you’d have to consider if it’s worth continuing in the Giro or pull out and prepare for the Tour as Sky’s backup GC option?

        It is the end of the second week now, well past his ‘best before’ date.

    Team Sky …. Marginal gains, massive failures

    • Dave

      Marginal brains.

      Why weren’t they taking care of him up the front until the 3km banner? Time for Richie to look for a team that will treat him like a GC leader instead of just talking about doing so.

  • CB

    Always find it bizarre to hear English commentary on the loud speakers at the finish line of a Giro stage, as here with Dan Lloyd brings Richie in, 2 mins back. Let’s hope Porte can do a good TT, and recover enough to be in with a shout in the final week.
