Giro - Grand Tour Tipping Contest

Recommended Posts

10 starters so far.

The race starts Friday, so everybody needs to get on this tonight, tomorrow, or early Friday.

 

Don't miss out.

The race starts tonight with a 9.7km TT. Rohan Dennis is a good chance of picking up the first Maglia Rosa which would see Australia's trend of being over-represented in early stage GT leaders continuing. 

Entries close at 8:45 tonight, so get in before you hit the "pre-ironman" turps.

Got a sneaking suspicion that the "other half" has just acquired a team considerably better than mine

The cream is starting to rise to the top. That Ex-H guy is doing ok as well.

Purely by accident. I picked a quick team, mainly Mitchelton-Scott, meaning to go back & pick a real team before cut-off. I actually had planned to have Dennis and Yates as my 2 GC contenders which would have been good. Visconti helped last night.

Mt Etna will be a good first test for them tonight.

It will be interesting to see what mitchelton-scott do now, Yates looked very strong last night pulling away from the rest of the GCs

They will both start falling back now, as they aren't part of the velogames team.

But they are both a part of mine.

 

Loving it.

Geee Froome is struggling.

He is either sick. 

Got too much on his mind.

When not on any drugs that 1% difference is massive.

How good is this footage about 3:30 in of the mountains?

It's killing me that this race is not on FTA TV. The Giro screwed up mightily there.

Hopefully Froome isn't sharking. It's still early in the Giro. Just get a feeling that Michelton Scott is celebrating too soon. Hopefully not

Froome is gone in this race. 3:20 down, with only 1 x 34km TT to come, and a few quality riders in front, he won't come back. It wouldn't surprise me if he either drops out or eases back & just aims for a stage win on the mountain top finish on the 2nd last day.
