I think Dowsett has got a chip on his shoulder, great ride from him.

Euskaltel must have the 'worst TTT of all time' title sown up by now, wow.

Garmin shits the bed, very disappointing.

Given the up and down nature of the course, I can't help but think that if you were finishing with more than 6, you screwed up.

No. All of Sky and Movistar were on Graals. Fastest 18 bikes at the Giro ;)

To answer my own question about Steegmans. From Velonews

"Due to a crash earlier, Steegmans’ derailleur malfunctioned in a crucial moment, dumping his chain to the little ring."

BMC Racing Team now using short tail Giro helmets, as seen with Garmin for the last few years.

On Garmin: try dropping your bike @ 55 kph and do a TT the next day. Surely Millar wasn't 100%. And none of the late teams did especially well. I wonder if the wind picked up, as Fritz Caley speculated on Twitter.

They looked very grim at the split, and rode a good second half to salvage a decent result.

I can't stand watching TTs. Maybe ITTs but only with so much drama attached to it i.e. Ryder v Purito last yr or Lemond v Fignon in Tour '89 (who am I kidding, I was only 4 back then but documentaries are entertaining)

Anyone on the same boat as me?

Still better TTs than flat stages like: breakaway > breakaway caught 10 to go > sprint of the bunch > Cav wins :-)...

After hig mountain stages, TT are the best. All the rest of stages are the boring ones, to me...
