Why did they put a non mountain stage on a saturday? It turned out to be a major breakdown in general classification

147 km – 3000 meters climb – highest climb at 698 meters

But Bora attacked all day and in the end the 12th on the stage, good old Alejandro Valverde was something like 8 minutes behind the leaders

Stage won by Simon YATES, followed by Jay HINDLEY and third Richard CARAPAZ. Fourth is Vincenzo Nibali

The new Pink Jersey is Richard Carapaz

The game

JR Weinberg’s Twin Palms wins again with a monstre 119 points. Pick some sprinters next time and you can smash this game

In the General Classification we have a team quietly Climbing position and currently in 4th position there is Giacomo Salmoiraghi’s Scott Cycling Team – a team with zero victories so far but that is slowly closing the gap to the podium

The mountains

The twin teams of Rita Visonà’s barcollo ma non mollo and DanieleCaf’s Ultimi in classifica win the stage and climb to second position behind JR Weinberg’s Twin Palms

An elimination game

Halfway through the Giro and many teams have lost several riders.

Three teams have lost 5 riders. The first two of the GC (Fred de Witt’s The White Tornadoos and Rene van Noort’s Loeki de Leeuw) and Ciro’s Staje senza penzier. Ciro is the winner of the first stage. he must have played all his cards on day 1

The top 2 in GC have lost some bullets. Time to attack them

THere is only 1 team with full list of riders still on board: Alessandro Mariani’s VanPoppeDaPaura is second last. he can climb to first if all the others abandon
