    I will do some, but might be week 2 or so as next week is pretty crazy here.

    You can put my name against a stage that is dull and uninteresting (as that is what my previews are) and that no one else wants.

    Probably won't have time for a stage preview until late next week, so I'm passing for now. I can do Etna, Montevergine or Gran Sasso if they're still untaken by then.

    I will definitely take stage 13 to Nervesa della Battaglia. Though probably not that interesting, it crosses the Montello where I have stood in the rain and cheered on the Giro peloton in 2013, so it holds a personal interest to me. ;)

    I can take stage 2.
    Noted. Haifa-Tel Aviv is yours. :)

    Stage 7, Pizzo-Praia a Mare, has been chosen for you. :P

     I'll do a couple.
    Not fussy on doing an Israeli one, but whatever, whenever in Italy.

    Can I have #6 Etna? Also if needed I could do some others, maybe #14, #15 or #20? I'm not just picking mountains, by the way, it's a busy month and those are the periods of downtime I'm got!

    Take your pick!
    Otherwise I'll just assign you whatever's left with a few days' notice. ;)

    The Etna is yours!
    The other stages are noted, but not assigned, for now.

     Nobody has put their hand up for tomorrow's stage.
    I have to do a basic one elsewhere so, I can tart it up a bit and put it up here.
    Hopefully, that will earn a brownie point or two with Lukas. :D

    I'll have a look after and pick one from each week.

     Right, stage 3 is done, so I won't do stage 4. :D
    I hate Montevergine, so I'll do the next available, which is stage 9, Gran Sasso on May 13th.
    The next day is a rest day, which is good as I will be a year older. ;) (Thank you California)
    It also means it's ideal to knock out another stage.
    So, I'll take.....stage 11 as well.
    Then something in the final week.

    I'll take Montevergine then, that takes care of all stages in the first Italian week.

    I just tossed basic stuff in for 13, 14, 15  and 17. Please feel free to add commentary.

    BTW - I could not find the calendar hookup. Did it go away?

    NVM, found it!

    I was about to do the stage 13 thread just now - this means I don't have to search for profiles etc. myself. :D
