Boss Hogg, Jr. is Awesome

He almost won it yesterday, but they couldn't bring back Scarponi. But today young Boss Hogg, Jr. made amends with a win that would make his daddy proud. Forget the future. This guy's a certified stud right now. And he's only 21 years old. He shattered his rivals from a five-man breakaway group, beating a pretty good sprinter in Robbie Hunter with apparent ease. Pavel Brutt was third on the day. No change in the overall GC. See Pez for more.

Final Kilometre:

I guess this means that Donna is Daisy Duke, Jr., at least vicariously speaking. She took the stage in the FGBC Giro d'Italia Pool with perhaps even more of chutzpah than Boss Hogg, Jr. The younger Hogg, in fact, is on her team. And so is today's second place finisher, Robbie Hunter, the Honorary Captain's former teammate. She also has Alessandro Bertolini, who was also in the breakaway group and ended up finishing 5th. And she has Sebastian Hinault, who finished 14th today. Together, they totalled 390 points for Donna. That's the highest total we've seen in a stage so far. Donna is also our seventh different winner in seven stages. Right on. Naomi was a distant second with 225 points, while Jonah grabbed the final podium spot for the second day in a row, finishing with 190 points.

In the overall race, we have the same three podium finishers. But the order is different, and the gaps are much smaller. I have 1270 points, while KK has moved into second with 1249. Chris A drops to third place with 1213 points.
