Wow, Popo really got unlucky there. Despite the fact that Discovery limited the time loss, they need to hope he's not badly hurt.
Question: Is the Giro doing what the TDF does now? Where you don't get your team's actual time but instead there's the time of the winning team and then everyone else gets time penalties from that? Or are they going with actual time?
If it is actual time, Simoni's now got to make up 2+ minutes on Di Luca and what looks like a strong team (of course we're not in the mountains yet) that could prove pretty tough. Still, I think Simoni's feeling pretty motivated to kick butt this year.
