Re: Giro 2018 - Stage 21: Roma › Roma

After nine years the Giro returns to Rome.

I can't believe it's been that long. I also hadn't realized that Rome had not been revisited since that memorable and nail-biting finish of 2009.

Serious props to Menchov's alert and quick-responding mechanic. He was the MVP of the day.

(I guess we can't do time-stamp embeds on the videos?)
Start @9:00

The overhead footage @13:00 of the bike change is a classic unto itself.

I remember Menchov's defiant rage of exuberance after surviving this harrowing Time Trial.  :cool
