    The first Grand Tour of the year starts in just a few days. Here's Podium Cafe's preview.

    Here's to a memorable race. Stage 20, the second to last stage, looks beastly - taking on the Mortirolo and finishing on the Stelvio. Wow.

    Is it only on Universal Sports? I guess I'll have to fork over $20 to watch it online

    Should be good for a bunch sprint. I would imagine Cav would be the fave.

    I missed the stage today, but it looks like it was a pretty crazy/crash filled ending. Goss takes the stage. Cav and Phinney go down, Phinney looks to have gone down pretty hard and was in an ambulance for a bit, but he does get the finish within the time and thus, still keeps pink.

    looks like blood on TP's shoes.

    Tomorrow is a rest day, as they move from Denmark to Italy. Team Time Trial on Wednesday.
