Giro d'Italia: Stage 10

Week two of the Giro d'Italia is well under way after a well deserved rest day yesterday. Bradley Wiggins is still trying to make up his lost time from last week, when he was delayed by crashes, a puncture and wet and slippy conditions. He still remains in high spirits and is determined to win. 'I just seemed to have one problem after another really,' Wiggins admitted on an eventful opening to the race. 'I've said all along the Giro is going to be like that and every time I've ridden the Giro it's been challenging like that, let alone going for the GC. You've just got deal with it as things come along.'

The current leader is still Nibali with Wiggins coming up in 4th, so still a way to go if the Brit is to steal the title.


1. Vincenzo Nibali (Italy/Astana) 38:57:32'

2. Cadel Evans (Australia/BMC Racing) 41'

3. Rigoberto Uran (Colombia/Team Sky) 2:04'

4. Bradley Wiggins (Britain/Team Sky) 2:05'

5. Robert Gesink (Netherlands/Blanco) 2:12'

Stage 10

Stage 10 started at Cordenons and runs a 102.6km route to Altopiano Del Montasio. There are two big climbs in this section of the race and the roads are narrow and wet making the conditions pretty treacherous. This race is not a great opportunity to make up time, so Bradley Wiggins will struggle to regain his lost minutes in previous races. With a top altitude of 1555m on the first mountain, riders will have some steep climbs to contend with. Making sure they have the right tyres and clothing is vital for the changeable weather.
