Not much to see; why did I get up so early? Sounds like tomorrow may get cancelled entirely.

No video due to weather and the shortened the stage as well.

Bummer. Text updates here http://live.cyclingnews.com/

Michele Acquarone:

“Tomorrow is rather complicated as there’s snow throughout the region. We’re in contact with the French authorities and with Luc Eisenga of AIGCP to find the best solution for the safety of the riders and for the race. The ideal would be to do the whole stage but we’ll see.”

The first vehicles are reaching the finish. Looks like we'll have coverage of last 350 m only.

Some crazy guy who apparently rides every stage ahead of peleton actually seems to have gone up and down Sestriere before the course change was announced.

Nibbles has this in the bag.

Remember when Armstrong claimed to have "gifted" Pantani that epic stage, seems Nibali uses a little bit more tact. Even though I believe Armstrong did hold back for Pantani.

Quote:

"Nibali appeared to soft pedal close to the finish line, allowing his fellow Italian to earn the victory."

“It was a long, hard day. Very cold, especially at the end in the snow,” Nibali said. “This is a long Giro, not over yet. It was a good test at the end. [Santambrogio] won, but I was able to make a good gap on my rivals.”

While gifting is a nice gesture, what happens if Nibali loses the GdI by 7 seconds? That gift becomes a big mistake.

At first it looked gifted to me, later they showed a different closeup shot of Nibali close to the finish line, and the expression on his face was one of agony; now I am not so sure anymore
