Stage 15: Valdengo – Bergamo , 199km
A bumpy Sunday ride from Valdengo suddenly gets chippy 149km in as the peloton has to then scale a Cat 2 immediately followed by a Cat 3 before a hasty run into beautiful Bergamo. A pretty ride no doubt, but also one which might favor a late but aggressive breakaway. Also possible – a GC contender, Pinot perhaps, will take a hard shot at his rivals as a recovery day follows and he has time to rest-up before the daunting climbs of Stage 16.
My call: Some young no-name Giro first-timer takes this stage as the veteran leaders of the peloton look on and act upset…slamming their handlebars in faux frustration for the cameras.
