Tomorrow's stage is basically a flat one for the sprinters but crosswinds could come into play. I'm hoping my hidden gem, 4-point sprinter Guardini will score me some points!



EDIT: This is the right parcours!

3 weeks away but what's the chance of another shortened stage. Think they have had to change parcours in both the last 2 editions haven't they?

Yes, it's more than likely this year. There's been so much snow this year all over Europe. Most of the resorts closed last weekend but some of them still have over 3m of snow above 2,000m.
The problem with the Giro is that it takes places relatively early in the season and the weather can still be very unpredictable. But it all adds to the fun, doesn't it (as long as stages aren't cancelled or parcours modified)?

I was indeed caught out by this.

Good win by Viviani today.

However they have brought the Giro earlier in the calendar than it used to be which increases the problem.

Very good win considering his teammates were radioing in to try and find out where he was inside the final KM.

Great job getting on Bennetts wheel and then jumping on Marescko when he came past.

Given how his lead out failed on this occasion and how 'easily' he won in such a messy sprint it is certainly ominous for the competition in the points classification. (Although I have picked him in velogames hoping that would be the case.)

Bold move by BMC to take pink today, although Sunweb had claimed they would not protect it at all costs and were true to that.

Missed the deadline to join by a few hours on Friday. Despite making a calendar alert for Thursday night. Chapeau to me.

Was looking for a few bets, Viviani at Evens to take the Sprinters jersey looked a cert as long as he stays on his bike. I was tempted by Aru and Chaves for the each way outright but I’ve left it.

A Giro to watch rather than bet this year, I think.

Viviani should be a shoe in for the blue jersey it is just a case of him making it to the end. His biggest challenge may well be Bennett as whilst Marezcko is faster he has not finished the previos 2 editions and struggles IMO when there is a long distance to cover and over the sustained punishement of a mountainous tour.

Today's stage is lumpier than I thought. The final km is at 10% so the "puncheurs" will be looking forward to the finish. Woods? Wellens? Ulissi?
