Giro d’Italia Stage 19

by CyclingTips

Apologies for the late post today. I had a little race myself today and just got home. Some fantastic photos came in from last night’s exciting stage that I absolutely had to share with you.

As you may have heard there were a few alternate routes planned for tonight in the event that ski season came early. The route is going ahead as originally planned from Bormio to Passa del Tonale. In any case, it should be EPIC!

The Giro should pretty much be decided tonight and if Cadel wants to get on the podium he’s gonna have to ATTACK!

Dammit Cadel, where's your team!

This is a good example of what a good team can do for you in a Grand Tour

Garzelli pulls a heart-string

Richie gets 14th in the stage. Un-freakin'-believable!

Keep pushing that massive gear Cadel! Remember the shoes auction ends on Monday

That's gotta be cold up there...

Scarponi takes the win, but 2 on 1 should never lose.

Cadel loses 3:06 on the stage and is now 5th on GC, 4mins down. Arroyo down to second on GC
