Wow. Wiggins is just being gutted like a bluefish right now.

What are his options, to continue and not even gain a step on the podium or withdraw and target ToF.

If Wiggins hangs on, recovers from the lung infection or whatever, he may be a help to Uran, but he'll no doubt have his mind on Le Tour, so let's get that Froome-Wiggins controversy started up again.....

Ironic, yesterday Wiggo commented that he was hoping today and tomorrow being relatively easy he could get over that infection. Then conditions get attrocious again...

I wonder if Ryder has same infection; it seems to be going around.

Cav's 100th!

Thing is I dont think Uram was even in the lead group at the finish today -- so I dont think there is a GC threat for Sky anymore. The tdf will be interesting as Wiggins will want to fight for the GC there as this race has become a disaster for him. Probably should abandon.

My understanding was that Uran was in the Nibali group.

Uran is still listed as 3rd on GC so he must have been there.

so Wiggins got dropped on a descent [again] and was unable to regain contact w/ the peleton?

He doesn't descend like a girl - he descends like a fricking chump or fred.

Good god, what an embarrassment - if that's what really happened.... ("Bradley Wiggins (Sky), dropped with 40km to go on the descent off the day's final KOM" ) Getting shelled because you can't keep up with the intensity is one thing (that happens to me regularly)- pussing out on a downhill is another IMHO.

-- youre right OC he is still up there so Wiggo has some reason to fight thru it. Still the Tour is gonna be interesting. When did a returning winner ever agree to be anything other than team leader -- must have been the Hinault/LeMond affair. And we know how that ended

BN, descending like a girl? I'll wager Marian Vos would have arrived at the bottom of those descents in the group!

Vos isn't a "girl", she is an alien.

ok, Mr sideburns-no-more is ill = why he got shelled. That's a better 'splanation than descending like a chump.

My 'girl' descending reference was from 2 days ago when BW said just that about his pathetic descent on X mountain pass (too lazy to look that up..) There was a thread @ that too...

So Wiggo and Hej dropped out and Cav won his hundredth win. totally enjoy watching him. Hope he lights up Sagan (not a fan) like a Xmass tree at the Tour this year. The weather has totally sucked meatballs in all the races so far not just Giro. I can't believe no one has invented a light wet suite for riding AND what is up with the Italians playing KISS during podium ceremony every freaking day. Enough already and KISS.....WTF
