Giro d'Italia Stage 7: Pizzo - Praia a Mare

The route is undemanding, and winds its way on a wide roadway along the ss. 18 trunk road, with just a few tunnels along the course. The long yet mild climb leading from Scalea to the -10 km mark is the only trickier part of the route. Final kilometres: from 10 to 5 km before the finish, the road is wide and well surfaced, with 3 tunnels along the way. A few hundred metres after the end of the tunnel, the route leaves the ss. 18 and passes through the centre of Tortora Marina, first, and Praia a Mare, thereafter. The route continues along wide avenues, with just two bends leading into the home straight (1,900 m, on 7.5-m wide asphalt road).

Crash for Froome. On the climb.

 

Time to give him some of those little wheels on the side children use when they're learning to ride a bike.

I didn't search so I can't be 100% sure but let's say I am 99,9% sure :d 

 

No surprise to see him take a stage of course, but it's awesome and this was a cool attack.

There was a 2% climb already today so Jakub Mareczko DNF'ed.

I don't know what happened but Chaves is already 2 minutes and a half behind the main group!

The road starts to look like Flanders and Stybar attacks within 5 meters :d

This looks more and more like a Yates vs Dumoulin (who looked quite good today) battle. I just hope Yates doesn't dominate on the Zoncolan and easily wins the giro
