    Anyway he said he would work on TT position during the winter, althought It appears that the TT improvement has compromised his climbing skills

    That’s close people that’s close.

    Today they were probably on the most affordable climbe and Yates suffered.

    By the way in team Sky are full of headless chickens :)

    Tomorrow is the day. Cervinia should not made great changes. It is a long climb (28kms) and is harsh in the first 5/6 then they can use the 53 anterior untile the last 8km. After Valtournenche (1560mt asl) it start to raise, with several 180 turns. The tunnel Could be a good place to attack, it is scarcely lightened and at the exit the road is flat fo 600mt. Then the 2 last kms. My best time is 1h 22’ (please don’t laugh)

    It looks like Simon read our forum, and take it easy to escape of study :grinning:
    We do not laugh at all, I just congratulate you for starting and finishing this climb.
    This will be another two great days to watch Il Giro.
    A lot of places to attack and make a difference. Let's get the popcorn few beers and enjoy :heart:

    Epic and LEGENDARY stage. Amazing attack for 80KM. I love this guy. I feel sorry for Simon. But WHAT A SHOW !!!!!!!
    Tomorrow will be a very interesting day, I think. Will have Froome power to defend his jersey? Will have Tom power to attack Froome? Can't wait until tomorrow !!!!
