The two most famous mountain stages in the Tour de France are L'Alpe d'Huez and Le Col du Galibier.

Today, the race to the summit of Galibier is on in the Giro. So far, the maglia rosa may be in the hands of an Italian at the end of the final stage on Tuesday...Vicenzo Nibali. That is, until he fails his drug test.rofl.gif

Here's a preview of the stage...





The first group out on the course was the snowplows...

Cool Pics. The Cadel evans pic lol.gif
Reading this
Pantani Stage: “In the final kms, you saw me crying, but for the last 3 kms I was crying inside. I knew I could win the stage. I thought of the coincidence of finishing near Marco’s memorial. We share the same birthday. I thought of him and asked him for the strength to finish. Someone said to me today, a circle is closed. A year ago I quit the race on Stage 15, today I won Stage 15. I hope that from now a new career starts for me.”
added so much to the race memory.

Watching the stage it looked like a bunch of cyclists heading to Mt Doom from Lord of the Ringschuckle.gif

Rest day today, well deserved! I hope Nibali wins the Giro, good to have a home grown winner. Cav has been a Phenom with OPQS, sprint train working well. Sky should have let Uran go it alone, instead of having to help Wiggo who is now out of it.
