    A fantastic win by Geschke, nice to see a beard on the podium.
    Is Contador not up to his Giro standard or did he shine at the Giro because the competition wasn’t there? His attack with Mick didn’t last very long and didn’t look like a confident Contador fly away, looking backwards more than forwards in that attack.

      I would argue – that aside from Froome – the performances by the podium finishers at the Giro match, if not exceed, the standard set by the top 5 at the TdF.

      The Giro was a crazy-hard race. Every day was treated like a one day race.

      Its just too hard to race two GT against competitors who are focussed on the one.

      Aru and Landa would be struggling just as much, if not more so, if they were at the TdF.

    Great win by Simon Geschke.The man took his chance and went for it.
    Alberto had a nasty fall on the big descent which cost him dearly in time terms.
    Chris Froome kept on his rivals wheels and maintained his advantage.
    Oh it seems a lot of the peloton were sick today and some including GC contendor TG had to retire.Either a bug is doing the rounds or a lot of riders were grazing from dodgy food vendors during yesterdays rest day.

    Scary technical descent, and really showed the incredible bravery (than skill) that these pro’s have. I think ASO really pushed the limits with this one.

  • Hamish Moffatt

    Geschke! Great riding.

  • Robert Merkel

    Pinot’s crash was due to pedal strike. Odd mistake for a pro to make on a descent.

    Great ride by Geschke.
