Giro d'Italia 2018

Dumoulin at least seems to be getting stronger by now, so it could become one hell of a battle from now on.

Yates vs. Dumoulin.
Pinot the dark horse really and wonder how the last week plays out. Similar for Pozzovivo.

Aru, Froome surely try something later on and could play an important role for those dark horses in case of a cooperation.

Yates had to had his middle name revealed to evolve into a beasty rider.

Yates in top shape, but now I'm a bit more uncertain on 3rd week, but he is building a great advantage, it'll be a great battle I think
 
Wilier
Wonder if Yates can keep this up. He's been outstanding since day 1. Is he going to have a bad day?

He was actually involved in a crash in the bottom of the second last climb.

Froome to a reporter on rest day, asked whether he still uses salb: "None of your business"

Pressure is mounting up and Froome does shit. Joy to the world.

Should have looked the idiot reporter straight in the eyes and slowly "Yes".
If he says no everyone says he's lying anyway. None of your business isn't a bad answer, at least it's instictive and more about frustration with speculation than a legit slip-up. But it gets jumped on because it's not a clear denial.

Anyway, just waiting for the hearing....

Every Yates gain has been a final 2km punch so far.

1) That doesnt say much about his form when having to go from further on out
2) That won't be enough to win the Giro
3) Dumoulin seems to be getting better.

Yates needs to do things differently if he wants to gain enough time. Zoncolan is a good shot. But can he do it? In the giro last year Quintana went from much further out. And Dumoulin gradually brought it back.

I'm certain Yates can create a 20s gap when attacking, showed it several times. But can he hold it when he does this from 5 or 8km instead of 2? Doubt it. We'll see it soon enough.
The advantage is that the Zoncolan is so steep it probably works against Dumoulin no matter how you put it

Why not be honest about using TUE at least for once. It'd be a nice change after he has kept quiet about it for ages and everything, in his book, after all the Tours.. But ofc, what to you expect from it, not much surely.

Thanks for this. Haven`t seen it before but explains it.

Bad luck then.

I think Froome is running on still water instead of 'strawberry juice' considering Sky is under investigation, this being the reason for their poor performance so far. (and yes, I still consider him a cheat)

What do you guys think Yates will need before the TT ,another 2mins if he want to stay in pink .

I think Dum will take at least 2 min on any GC contender the leasr. steamroll right through.

Froome: Talking earlier to Eurosport, Froome said: "I'm not going to lie, that crash took a lot out of me." Having confirmed he was still suffering pain in his right side from the impact of the fall in Jerusalem, Froome reflected, "In this game, if you are not at your absolute best you can't hide, or you can only hide for so long, which we've seen.


hahha ok. funny. I can remember sky and him sayin its not so bad. they are just the worst

Will be interesting to see for sure, most of Adam and Simon's time gains so far, in GTs at least, have been those kind of attacks, either last 2km of a climb or 6-7km of descent/flat.

Today Imola. It was quite fun the year Vini Zakarini won.

I think Yates knows that long range attacks won't have much effect, since Dumoulin will just drag himself back. The only way seems to beat him with a quick punch in the last kms. If Yates can take 10 to 20 seconds on each mountain finish it might be enough since Yates is not a horrible time-trialist. IMO it all comes down to wether Yates can sustain this form and continuously "outpunch" Dumoulin

Zoncolan is the place but all out. Pozzo and Yates should go there.
Like ruben did say Dumoulin is getting better and better.
Giro is best. Even Froome looks ok guy at Giro..Smile

I'm not sure Simon will lose so much more than 2.00-2.30 in the ITT, the form he seems to be in is like we have never seen him before.

I know only 9.7 km, but 7th in the 1st stage is unexpectedly good from a mountain goat like him. Another thing that may help Yates a bit, is that he got 3 mountains after the ITT where he knows how much time he needs (if any).

Gooo Simon Goooo
