Giro Rosa

Wow, exciting and epic Tappa 5. Tactics and skills as good as any men's race... Women don't show suffering so visually though.

Women are stoical and men are strong, they should cross breed them.

I quite enjoy watching women's cycling. While I'm not expert enough to notice all the subtleties, it seems to me that unless you are looking at speed/power numbers directly, it's pretty indistinguishable from men's racing (that's not the case for many sports). I certainly find it every bit as exciting.

Maybe it was just cold yesterday in the Alps. Women are quite capable of a good suffer face.
