    I bet Hesjedal is wishing the race could be a week longer. He's been outstanding since the TT. Between him and Kruiswijck for Man Of The Match in the 2nd and 3rd week.

    Yowsers, I see what you mean, that's a crowded cockpit right there.

    Have you considered replacing those twist-grips with some Sunrace barend or bar-top-thumb shifters? Would open up a lot of space...

    I looked the weights up on a few seller sites, they had the Luganos down as 335g in the 23c.

    A pair of Conti GP4000s tyres are 100g each lighter than the Schwalbe Luganos. And better in every other way too.

    Contador's epic ride on the Mortirolo wasn't even in the top 10 fastest climbs up it in Giro history.

    An Italian drop out while sitting 3rd in the Giro? Not gonna happen. Aru and Landa will try and double-team Contador over the remaining mountain stages and, at the very least, prevent him getting...

    Anything about Landa taking bottles from the car inside the last 20km? Kelly was speculating that they'd pre-cleared it with the officials since it was such a hard stage. Not that I'd blame anyone...

    Let's be clear about what Contador actually did. From the foot of the Mortirolo, Landa pretty much took over the pacing at the front of the Aru group. When Contador got to the foot himself, he then...
