Whoa....uphill into a headwind in the rain Mtn TT for the win. I don't know what else you could ask for out of a Grand Tour.

Will Nibbles go under 45 minutes?

As I said 2 days ago, the writing was on the wall for Cadel. He had a tough time on final climb in Stage 16.

Nibali almost one minute faster than #2. Really?!?

I am thinking Nibali is very hungry for a good Giro win.

It is an uphill TT. The course was suited to him. He did not podium at Le Tour by accident.

Cadel will need to work to keep second, but it's quite likely Uran will pass him unless those stages are shortened.

Well, a podium as part of his career exit for Cadel is still darn impressive.

They may just need to pull the plug on the sport for a year or 2

I want to believe that Vin is just better than the others but if 6.5 is accurate... I would like to see real numbers though.

Cycling is in a bad situation. If everyone is squeaky clean the best guy will win but many will wonder if he's clean.
