Plan de Corones: Post-Stage Thread

Giro-poststage-2_mediumMajor sufferfest today. Not sure what the hell got into Garzelli, but then it happens about once a year, so there you go. The results speak:

  1. Stefano Garzelli, Acqua e Sapone, 41’28
  2. Cadel Evans, BMC, at 0.42
  3. John Gadret, AG2R, at 0.54
  4. Vincenzo Nibali, Liquigas, at 1.01
  5. Michele Scarponi, Androni, at 1.07
  6. Ivan Basso, Liquigas, at 1.10
  7. Rigoberto Uran, Caisse d'Epargne, at 1.38
  8. Alexandre Vinkourov, Astana, at 1.39
  9. Dar io Cataldo, Quick Step, at 1.43
  10. Yevgeni Petrov, , at 1.48

and the GC:

  1. Arroyo
  2. Basso, at 2.27
  3. Porte, at 2.36
  4. Evans, at 3.09
  5. Sastre, at 4.36
  6. Nibali, at 4.53
  7. Vinokourov, at 5.12
  8. Scarponi, at 5.25

UPDATE! Here's something to chew on -- if Arroyo holds on to win, he will become the third consecutive different Spanish rider to win a grand tour. Surely no nation has ever pulled off the three-headed triple win before, right?

Pic of the day? Oh dear...
