Phew—what a solid little last week to a pretty fantastic Grand Tour. Isolation, teamwork, poop, loss-limiting, just a touch of a panache, and a wonderfully tight GC battle all the way down to the last rider off on the last day’s TT. Enjoy it, folks—the good ones don’t come around that often.
For as long as I’ve been making these, people have been asking how long it takes. Now you can see for yourself (sort of).

Episode 72: Giro d’Italia 2017, Part III
Bit of a name change here, as this is now the Giro d’Italia Rest Day Round-Up, but the fine content and sharp analysis brought to you by Dane and myself remains the same as we head into the Giro’s nightmarish final week.
Tom Dumoulin proves his mettle as a reasonable GC contender, Sunweb rises to the team challenge, one normal sprint, one crazy sprint, and loads of anticipation for this Giro’s final week. And another big thank you to Eurosport.
Some breakaways, a crazy sprint, the occasional crash, some colossal organizational errors, and the Giro’s first big GC shake up. Stages 5-9 were many things, but they certainly weren’t boring. Here’s a second HTRWW installment for the 2017 Giro, thanks to the good rightsholders at Eurosport.
Don’t forget to catch up on Giro Stages 1-4. Fixed the autoplay issue because I am also a web developer.
Four stages, four separate winners, four new leaders—the start of the 2017 Giro has more than delivered. Catch up on all the action—espcially the bits you might have missed the first time—from the non-sprint on Stage 1, to the echelons on Stage 3, to yesterday’s climb to the top of Mount Etna. All legit, thanks to the good people at Eurosport.
And I apologize in advance about the autoplay. As far as I can tell, that’s not something I can control on my end.
