While reading the previews for today's stage, I was reminded of this story from the decisive 1984 Giro time trial, when the Italian Moser pipped the Frenchman Fignon :

As Fignon told historian Les Woodland in a Procycling magazine interview, “In the time trial, just get out the tapes from the television and see for yourself. It’s very clear. The television helicopter was flying just behind him. You can see from the images. They are all from low down and behind him, so that the blades of the helicopter were pushing him along. Then look at the pictures of me and they’re all taken from in front of me, so that while the helicopter was pushing Moser along, it was pushing me back.”

Dumoulin beware!

Fonzi actually making a thing out of and celebrating the 'maglia nera' even if it's not real anymore. It's an italian in a jersey of sorts so in that sense he may have had the jump on the shark.

Heyyyyyyyyy!

Dumoulin beware!
French TV mentioned that Giro the other day during one of the 100th anniversary special reports. Not only was there the helicopter incident flying behind Moser to "push" him but also in front of Fignon to slow him down, but more importantly the "Stelvio" stage was shortened due to a risk of bad weather. There was of course no bad weather at all. Moser was also pushed up most of the climbs whereas Fignon got time added on for an illegal "ravitaillement". We shouldn't forget that Fignon was spat upon and had vinegar thrown at him too. (Urine is a much more recent invention)!

TOM!

Quintana put up some solid resistance to hold on to his 2nd place. Nibbles finishes on the podium less than a minute behind Dumoulin!

Great Giro!

Dumoulin wins!

All that time in the saddle and it comes down to about 30 seconds.

Brilliant finale. Obvious similarities too with Fignon's defeat at the 1989 TDF.

Yes, well done Perky. Particularly impressive given that you had Thomas's early ill fortune.

Dumoulin. The guy I picked as a total random in the Tour de Suisse a few years ago because he looked like he could time trial.

Well done Perky. Led most of the way.

Apologies for late response. I was in Italy for a week in the middle of the race doing my own 128mile, 3800m ascent of climbing event. My wife and I decided to stay away from the news and watch it all after we got back.
We've just finished and so glad we decided to watch it all not knowing. Great race, deserved winner and pleased to top our league.
Shame I missed on deadline for Criterium.
Bring on the tour
