    Talking of the Giro, have you read Dino Buzzati's book?

    If you enjoyed Bob Roll in Bobke II - it has a story of Hampsten's Giro - DB is worth every penny.

    (and hey, the Giro d'Israel has been totally awesome so far)

    Stuff Velosnooze - stage 4 is plain awesome to re-watch just for the punchy post-transfer-day agony; stage 5 had me rereading Buzzati's Etna chapter with the gnomes and all - and I am :yahoo:about stage 6 :D

    Limiting the damage from a crash before the opening time trial and still being able to stay in the top 10 doesn't sound like a steroid fail or enhancement. There's more to racing than drugs. Enjoy the race without an agenda.

    Wow! Amazing ride by Froome. It looks like he's won the Giro. Stage 19 will go down as one of the greatest rides ever.
