Sacha Modolo saves me an hour or so

Nothing remarkable happened in a stage of the 2015 Giro! You wouldn’t have thought it possible. A standard flattish stage, the break reeled in and a sprinter winning.

No punctures, no crashes, no time penalties. Just a straightforward win for Sacha Modolo and no changes in the general classification. Frankly, by this point, this kind of a result’s a relief.

I’m not even going to bother watching it.

Stage 18

Flat for ages, then a big climb, then a big descent. It doesn’t scream ‘big day for the general classification’ but you never know.
