While the riders are enjoying their rest day in Verona, here at VeloVoices Towers I’ve been picking the bones out of the first three days of action in the 2012 Giro d’Italia. Having looked at Taylor Phinney‘s big adventure so far and the early winners and losers, here’s the second part of my analysis which focuses on the glorious madness of the sprints and remembering the loss of one of the sport’s true champions.
Stage profile: Herning to Herning, 206km in a loop around the coast with a final circuit in Herning before a sprinter’s finish.
Top three: 1. Mark Cavendish (Sky), 2. Matt Goss (Orica-GreenEDGE), 3. Geoffrey Soupe (FDJ-Big Mat).
