10° Tappa ... LIVE!

And so it begins. One thing I like at the Giro site is the altimetra generale, which shows the entire three week route in relief. There's a subtle signal in this: you're climbing this mountain today, but for whatever reason you may not see any real time gaps. But the climbs still matter, because today's climb comes out of tomorrow's strength account, and over the full three weeks, the champion is the one to make payment in full first.

What is it with this Giro and my tendency to use tortured metaphors? Perhaps it's time to go watch the race...
