    "Stage 21
    The start of the ITT is set on the home straight of the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. After completing one lap of the circuit, the stage course takes the pit lane and passes behind the paddocks to enter the Monza Park"
    Looks like cycling and motor sport are more and more interconnected.
    And we, here at cyclingdepartment, are in front of this movement :grinning:
    @Bram and on stage 16

    I hope they take extra wide tyres up to 32mm so they can cut the corners more efficient :)

    Giro schedule looks awesome.

    Yep, until now it was a very enjoyable tour :). In stage 3 with that strong wind was a great finish. Also today (stage 5) will be an interesting finish

    What a great stage at Blockhaus for Quintana "El Condor de los Andes" :) And soooo much bad luck for Sky :(.
    I hope Mikel and Thomas did not suffer serious injuries.
    Also, I expect Nibali get in shape for the last week to see some good fights on those climbs.
    Anyway, until now it was a good tour to watch. I enjoyed every stage :heart:

    Yes, he is doing a great job until now. Yesterday was really amazing how respond to Quintana and win the stage. But for last week ... I don't know, Quintana it is a very powerful climber and even Nibali is expected to made some good climbings there. Indeed 2'47" it is a lot of time so Tom has a good chance to win this Giro. In 7 days will know for sure :)

    But there still is a TT coming as well where Tom will win valuable seconds again.
