It is cool that they have two Mtn stages at the beginning. This will break up the GC and make it safer on the flat stages. Plus you got to love Mtn top finishes!!

Who is LPR's climber? They seem to have an urgency about them.

Di Luca. I'm not a fan of his. I'd not be upset of Jens can hold on.

I was hoping for just about anyone else.
Lighten the hair. Tell me who it reminds you of.

Cool to see Lovkvist in pink though. That lad has a future.

Lance got dropped (or more politically correct, he stayed within himself)

No damage done, though. In fact, he picked up 2 sec. on GC.

Di Luca is a maniac on the softer climbs, it was a perfect finish for him. Tomorrow he'll be sucking wheels. Basso looks comfortable as did Levi. Apparantly Mick Rogers wasn't to happy about Cunago's sloppy riding in the last Km.

Tomorrow should see who's who in this Giro!

Something in his attitude just bothers me. Not sure it's even something I could point to. Maybe it's just me liking to see a cocky guy with looks get taken down a notch. I have similar feelings towards Tom Brady.
