What are we expecting today? Long stage - maybe an early break will get quite a big gap before the peleton start really working. Pirazzi chasing Rabottini for the KOM could be fun. And Cav needs J-Rod to finish outside the top 4 to hang on to the maglia rossa. Not to mention - can anybody break Hesjedal?

I think J-Rod has to go on the attack today... Wonder if Cav will go in an early morning break to see if he can get the intermediate sprint  39

Same team for me as yesterday (to give me 4 transfers for sunday) and also in the hope that Gadret could finally stick with the leaders  39 (so long as he finishes above de gendt technically my plan is still working)

As for Cav I think the sprint is too far into the stage for him, although if he were to get to it and win it, it would mean only a J-rod win could take it from him.

As it stands I think Cav will loose the Jersey, as J-rod will win it if he finishes higher than 5th!

So how much will the 5 points cost him from the other day, no wonder he was angry.

well Scarponi and basso have to attack JRod and Ryder. They will never make the time in the TT!
Would like to see Cav get the Jersey but really don't look good at all  20

Would like to see de Gent go for it today and prob will cause I've dropped him  14

J-Rod and Hesjedal might do the old Bertie and Schleck thing from the tour where they watched each other constantly on the mountain and the break escaped till the end.

Although they have Basso, Uran and Scarponi to worry about as well so i dont think that will happen.

So Cav gets the jersey we might get a couple of Sky lads out early in a break to hopefully stay away  39

How do you mistake Oliver Zaugg for Andrey Amador?

There was a problem with the time tranfers window..

Before the crash of the window time transfers i was making the money account to see if i was money to Zaugg or just to Andrey Amador ...and then the windows time crashed and i was not enable to see my account and make my transfers.
So i ask dave to make my transfers...then i realized that i might have not enough money to zaugg ... just to amador ...

So i ask again to swap zaugg to Amador ...

That's the history ...

I'm a fairly new cycling fan and I've never watched the Giro before.

So let me just state the obvious: The Mortirolo is just insane-looking.

No 10 points for Guardini today. He was disqualified for hanging on to a car along with Robbie Hunter and a couple others...

I thought Guardini just quit? Didn't think he was one of the ones booted out.

Me too, first time watching the Spring Classics, and now the Giro. Apparently last year was far worse as well! One thing - isn't the fantasy game a great way to learn about it? I've had great fun so far this season.
