Wheres the link for the stream?

I’ll stream the 7:30pm CET session on Twitch (as in, I’ll ride it, but check the other groups as well as much as possible and compare with the time set on the previous time slot )

Congrats to those who are still on the last climb but pushing themselves to finish this first terrible stage !

IRL, the time were spread between P. Roglic (44’23) and J. Hvideberg (58’09)

On RGT (in a group, with draft on), we have someone who got close to the Pro’s time already, on the first time slot :heart_eyes:
Noriyuki Matsuda just achieved a fantastic “just under the hour” ride.

The time to beat if you want to grab the leader’s jersey in this series is 59’51"5 !

Thanks for those who participated in the morning slot, this is a tough course (the toughest of the entire series)

The “open” and “veteran” podiums for this 1st stage (out of 7), and the full detailed standings for the curious ( RGT Cycling Classifications )

Note that W. Claes and A. Dubré managed to go under the time of the last IRL pro :scream: :muscle: (58’09 IRL) but more than 10’ behind Roglic’s time is reassuring, even if the Pros did it after 3 weeks of Giro :smile:

Next week, we move on to the 1st CLM of the Giro, won by Evenepoel, with much (much!) less gradient than today
