Ed’s GIRO’19 REST DAY RANT #1 in San Marino

Giro Rest Day No.1: As we know; a Grand Tour rest day is not a 'day off' for anyone. The riders need to ride, the mechanics have repairs and the soigneurs still have legs to rub... and Ed Hood has to catch-up with the first nine stages of the 2019 Giro d'Italia. One man stands head and shoulders above the others, but there are still twelve stages and the mountains to climb.

GIRO’19 Stage 9: Prime Time Primoz

Race Report: Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) dominated the final climb to hammer nails into the coffin of all of his rivals. For much of the route it looked like the GC contenders would all finish within a minute or so of one another, but Roglic set the stage alight on the final climb. A plucky ride by Valerio Conti (UAE Team Emirates) kept him in the pink jersey.
