I took a 30-pt hit, went riskier than you so could be losing more ground today!
Six the same as you, but no Uran, Battaglin or Niemiec - instead I have 3 guys that I'm hoping will get in the break today or tomorrow. Don't plan to make any more changes until Tuesday morning...

I've had Rudy Projects with inserts and never got on with them and I've been happy with my Oakley Half Jackets that I got last year. They didnt work out that expensive either as I got the lenses from http://www.balanceoptics.com/index.php/lens/prescription-sports/prescription-lenses.html and the frames from ebay. All in with transitions presciptions came in at a little over £200 including postage which is only a little more than the cheapest presciption sunnies.
Thanks very much for this. I can't believe the difference in price. I can't see where the option on the website is for transitions though. Did you get your pupillary distance from your optician? On the Balance Optics site frames and lenses [prescription] are coming out at £250 & optician was £439! Am I seeing things and do I need to get my eyes re-tested??!!

It's normal; nowt to do with global warming!
The Giro has always had 'snow issues' when it's headed into the high mountains, the most memorable being 25 years ago with Breukink and Hampsten's epic ride over and, more particularly, down the Passo Di Gavia.
I'm surprised they even cluded something as high as the Galibier; I've been cycling several times in the Swiss Alps in May and you don't expect anything over about 2000m to be open at that time of year and if it is you run the risk of avalanches.

Well, Fausto Coppi has a palmarés that Wiggins can only dream of but if I'm honest, I don't fancy his chances much this year either.
