    We may see some of the Galibier after all.

    I've been looking at routes around there for our visit in July, as far as I can see it seems a valid point about there being no alternative route through.

    turned out to be a great stage and well worth going up the galibier. What a ride from Visconti.

    It was a real slog, he looked absolutely battered.

    The gradient alone isn't so bad, it's the pace that kills you!

    Nibali is absolutely destroying the field in this time trial. Virtually winning the giro over 20km.

    Di Luca is a perpetual drug taking wanker. Life ban please.

    No stelvio, no gau. Balls today's stage was a brilliant route.

    Lovely weather on the final climb today. Proper ski sunday stuff.

    Amazing ride by Nibali to stamp his undoubted authority on the race. Also a tremendous effort by Uran who looks like he has got second place now as Evans blew up in the last two kilometres.

    Wiggins ruled out of Tour de France.

    Surprised they think he won't be able to train to at least be effective in supporting his team mate.

    Suspect they're resting him for a tilt at something later in the year, with Porte rumoured to be the main man for the Vuelta the World TT is an obvious one.

    Guess I'll have to make another flag for July! :-D

    Sky line-up announced.

    No Rigoberto Uran. That is a massive surprise to me.

    I see that the BBC alluded to the possibility of some behind-the-scenes shenanigans with regard to Wiggins ('Is he sick? Injured? Not needed?') in a biography about Froome. On the face of it, an injury that takes the defending champion, and one who said that he wanted to defend his title come what may, does seem *very* convenient, doesn't it?

    Wiggins to make his comeback in the Tour of Poland (according to Sky Sports)
    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    He is going to try for the Vuelta I reckon. Only reason I can see for Sky leaving Uran and Heinao out of the tour line-up.

    farcical. a team bus jammed under the finish line so they have to move the finish to the 3km kite. And now an enormous crash

    Bizarre finish, someone will be feeling a bit stupid tonight!

    Riders are given same time from the revised finish line, correct decision given all the confusion.

    Shouldn't be. The finish is narrow today so the buses will be pulled off the road with a few k to go.

    Great stage finish.

    Also a nice little statement of intent from Froome on that last ramp.

    Should see someone new in yellow tonight after the team time trial. It won't be Froome though. If Sky win, then Edvard Bosen Hagen will take yellow I think. Quite fancy David Millar to be in yellow tonight though - his squad look strong for the team time trial. The injury to Geraint Thomas is going to hamper Sky slightly as they would be relying on him to put a big part of the effort in today.

    Yep, Garmin for me too. Seem to recall them being quite strong in a recent TTT.

    Martin carrying a knock for OPQS and I hear Stannard is also struggling for Sky.
