In our 103 episode, Midge, Kathi and Chris discuss the first 9 stages of the 100th Giro d’ Italia. We delight in all the fresh-faced, first-time, stage winners and look forward to the back half of the race!

Bob Jungels re-joined the top 10 and re-established his maglia bianca credentials. Vincenzo Nibali loses time, but not position.
