Giro d'Italia LIVE - Stage 16


 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top, below sticky notes)

Follow cyclingfans on Twitter and never miss a race. Cyclingfans.com: The #1 source on the internet for live race coverage.  Now in our 5th year.

 

- Tuesday is the second and final rest day of the 2009 Giro d'Italia.  Coming later on Tuesday: Stage 16 photos, more videos, Tour de Cycling - Tuesday, and Stage 17 info.

- Watch the Giro d'Italia Stage 16 On Demand on Universal Sports here.  (Over three and a half hours of coverage.  North America.)

- Giro d'Italia:  Can't watch but can listen along?  Select your language from our list of Eurosport live audio streams.  (links in Live audio streaming section at right)  Audio streams can also be played while watching one of the video feeds, very useful if the commentary in your video feed is in a language you don't understand.

- Giro LIVE on Eurosport, earlier than scheduled.

- Giro d'Italia LIVE video streaming now on Universal Sports.  Links at right.

- Giro LIVE now via Rai.

- Giro d'Italia LIVE now on Rai Sport Piu web stream.  First Rai Sport link at right.

- First Giro feeds to go live will likely be the Rai Sport Piu web stream.  (First Rai Sport Piu link at right.)  As usual, we will update our Giro d'Italia live video listings throughout the stage, with the best available feeds.

- Stage 16 Preview:  This stage has all the makings of a great day of strategy and racing, attacks, counter attacks, hesitating on the part of some, going for broke on the part of others.  Denis Menchov (Rabobank), Danilo Di Luca (LPR Brakes) and Levi Leipheimer (Astana), the top 3 in the overall going into today's stage, are all within 43 seconds of one another.  Franco Pellizotti and Ivan Basso of Liquigas are 4th and 6th at 2 minutes and 3:03, respectively, of Menchov.  Carlos Sastre (Cervelo) is 5th at 2:52.  Menchov fears this stage the most.  It will be hard to control, there likely will be attacks all day long and Menchov's rivals will attempt, and succeed, to isolate the Russian.  It will be up to Menchov, as race leader, to respond.  Will he find allies on the road?  There will be attacks on the climbs and there will be attacks on the descents.  Teammates of contenders will be sent up the road early and thus potentially available late in the stage to help their team leaders.  Other attackers from far out may become overall contenders on the road.  Lance Armstrong could attack a couple of climbs from the finish, a move that could benefit team leader Levi Leipheimer as well as allow Armstrong, going at his own pace, to get in some great training miles.  One thing is sure: all the teams vying for overall victory will have a plan designed to ensure success.  The most successful stage race strategist around, Astana's Johan Bruyneel, lives for days like this.  Astana misses Chris Horner but they can still play a huge role in dynamiting a stage like this.  So this stage is about teammates up the road, attacks on the climbs, attacks on the descents, and then one last climb where...Ka-Boom!...the first 4 km are particularly difficult.  Some will be all smiles on Tuesday's rest day, some will regret missed opportunities, some will simply say "I gave it all I had."  Then on Wednesday, the climb to Blockhaus.  Best sport in the world.  -Pete
