like the team sky put together for last year's tour, i suspect this team is also designed to help wiggo in the high mountains. lots of racing to go; i wouldn't write wiggins off yet.

Some of you are pretty jumpy, there are two weeks left and a lot can happen.

I do wonder what happened to RH.  Maybe he got his "off" day out of the way and will ride like his chamois is on fire now.

At this point it seems not so much a question of whether Ryder simply had an off day and will light up things in mountains but a couple of other guys performing above expectations, notably Evans and Scarponi. Even if he can ride like his chamois is on fire he's looking at a pretty hefty deficit. But I'll certainly continue rooting for him.

Nibali is riding this Giro like he plans to win it. Evans is still riding a fine GC. Everyone else is going to have to do something big to dethrone Nibali unless bad luck falls his way.

I liker what I am seeing. I was worried Nibali might have injuries from his fall yesterday that he was keeping his outh closed about, but today looked like the ride of a healthy body.

Yeah, also bummed about RH. He could still podium, but how he takes back over two minutes from Nibali, let alone 1.5 minutes from Evans, I don't know. Tall order, that. Unless either have really bad day(s), seems RH went from driver's seat to now having to beat Wiggins, Gesink AND Scarponi just to be 3rd gc. I'm sure he'll come out swinging and take some time back but he's gotta not be pleased with today.

We will see, this ain't the TdF so I will be curious to see how the more severe climbs treat the gc heavies.
