Galibier awaits the Giro

By Veeral Patel on June 5, 2011

Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) is in the coveted maglia rosa after nine stages of the Giro. This week the riders begin the big mountain stages (starting with stages 10, 14 and 15), including the ascent of the Galibier on stage 15. This will be the first time the Giro has visited one of the iconic mountains of France and only the second time a grand tour has finished at the summit of the Galibier. The only other time was in the 2011 Tour de France, a race that Cadel Evans (BMC) won. Can Cadel win the 2013 Giro? Or will Nibali hold the maglia rosa all the way to the finish? And what of Wiggins' fortunes? Are his chances of winning the Giro all but gone?
