Sastre is riding for the podium, not for the victory. So, he's right in the place. May have a chance for second, but I wouldn't bet. Now he'll defend his 3rd... And there you go - it's going to be just like in the Tour.doctorSpoc said:so Sastre WAS playing possum.. still pretty far back... still has Blaukhause and Mt Vesuvius to try something though.
i'm becoming a believer in Menchov.. looks like he has the goods to go all the way... just takes one bad day though.. for interest sake and good racing the Giro is so much better than the tour people are willing to take chances.. people in the tour willfully race for 3rd, 4th, 5th.. hell even 10th place.. makes for boring negative racing.
