Carapaz is smart enough to know when he needs the help, he has that tactical brain. To finish first as they say. It's important to keep a consistent pace. Others have trouble with that. We'll see what happens for the rest of it. Although Lopez and Rosa will be tough to beat, but it should make for an entertaining event.

Yes it is a great sport, one for the gladiators

Alan Morgan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I'm going to be out of the country for most of the rest of the Giro but I'm hoping to keep in touch with what's going on.

Careful with those Prosecco corks kids! Feel for Girmay after a bizarre accident.

Thats a horrible turnaround... talk about hero to zero in a heartbeat .

Eritrean Girmay became the first Black African to win a stage of one of cycling's Grand Tours when he outsprinted Netherlands' Mathieu van der Poel in the 10th stage of the Giro between Pescara and Jesi.
However, the 22-year-old had to abandon the race after a prosecco cork exploded into his left eye on the podium.
According to his Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert team doctor Piet Daneels, Girmay suffered a hemorrhage in the anterior chamber of his eye and has been recommended to avoid physical activity.
"Our priority is a complete healing of the injury and that's why we decided together with the rider and the sports director that Biniam will not appear at the start of the 11th stage," said Daneels.

Incredibly he is the first Black African to retire from the Tour de France due to shooting himself i the eye with a Champage cork. Remarkable!

Why must his win be noted as the first by a Black African? The best man won on the day, and that should be enough without dragging race in to it. The media is too fond of dreaming up 'first', it cheapens peoples achievements for me.

Very fair comment Bob. Agree.

I must admit when I read the article I quoted part of, that I thought it was strange that Girmay was referred to as Eritrean Girmay. I thought his Christian name was Biniam.

Well done Jai Hindley! That was a killer move on Stage 20. I wonder if the absence of Ritchie Porte hurt Carapaz?

Anyway - May was a big month in the saddle for me. 900km and 11,500m of climbing. A lot of the km were done in Greece. Great roads, no potholes, patient drivers and fabulous views - recommended.
