Two in a Row for the J-Train

Fortunately, he practices his victory salutes on a regular basis. So he was ready. Jonah benefitted from a stage win by the guy with the sweetest name in the race, Eros Capecchi. He also got 55 points from Belgian stud Jan Bakelandts. With 205 points, he narrowly edged out big sister, Little M. She had 200 points on the stage, with contributions from Pinotti and Cataldo. Pete and Jonny G tied for third. They also have Capecchi, and so ended up with 150 points apiece.

No big changes to the GC. Miriam took 75 points back from Chris O's lead. She now trails by 135 points. If she's going to close the gap, it will have to be done by Serpa, Bak, Cataldo, and Klemme. Mark continues to hold onto the third podium spot. But Chris D has moved into 4th place. He is 211 points behind the Hipster.

Full results and overall standings here.

Note that with the Spring Ride commencing tomorrow morning, this will be the last update for the 2011 FGBC Giro d'Italia Pool for a few days. We will get caught up on Sunday evening or Monday. Hopefully by then, Clenbutador will have found a way to lose the race.
