Sur la Plaque! Scanning through the "Big Photographs" from today's stage 7 of the Giro on Steephill (worth a look after every stage) and I noticed, on this image - whose caption describes "Niemec about to launch Lampre-ISD teammate Michele Scarponi on the steepest (10%) part of the climb" - that both Lampre cyclists are in the big chain ring. Let me repeat that. 10% slope. Business end of stage 7 of the Giro. Big Chain Ring! To borrow from the definition of Rule #10 "Sur la Plaque" !
