Gone out for the afternoon. Just keeping an eye on things

Nasty looking motor bike crash.
Not much else to talk about..............yet.
A few teams with things to gain have done absolutely nothing.
(e.g. Rabobank and the points jersey)

Carlos 'Perfect 10' Barredo

A slow Saturday.
Bartali

Clever riding from Sastre.  Sweeps up some bonus seconds but more importantly he's forcing Leopard Trek to keep the pace very high.
Bartali

Hoes Harmon really not understand what Sastre is doing ... ?
HuwB

BENNATI!.................and BASSO won the big mountain finish yesterday.
Normal Italian service is resumed for Bartali. Smile

I heard one of them making a good analysis.  Take the bonus.  Good plan, but no need in fact.

So it is over.  At least I am not impelled to watch tomorrow.

6 Italians in the first 10 places!!

What was amusing me was that he was suggesting Sastre was seriously attempting to win the stage whereas I would have assumed he saw Barredo flagging so took up the pace simply to keep the sprinters teams honest.  A lowering of pace in the peloton would have left Cobo exposed to an albeit unlikely sky attack.

That's because they're not quitters like so many others .... where's Smauder?  Wink

On cue, BASSO takes the overall win at the Giro di Padania.
Bartali

BASSO Very Happy  Very Happy

Equally plausible and more creative.
