Yeh, I've just realised it's the Vergano. The same one they used last year. What with the route changes I didn't know whether it would be going over the Vergano this year.

I hope to god it's not a "Radio Controlled Team Sky" rider that wins....use your own f**king brain to race not someone sitting driving a car....whoever allowed race radio's years ago needs shooting.

What do people reckon? Sticking with Contador/J-Rod or someone else? I think Uran is in great form and is looking comfortable.

Pellizotti still there. Hasn't made any unnecessary efforts all race and went well this week.

I have no idea who is going to win. A ton of super climbers as well as explosive ones still there. Cunego and Samu can descend brilliantly also.

Note that Contador has been following Samu and the Euskaltel boys in the last 30mins.
