Videos! Giro Rosa 2014 Stage 6

Oh my goodness, “watching” Stage 6 – the first mountain stage – was so nail-biting, just from twitter – big early attacks, breakaways, solo-ing and one of those endings where the gap is plummeting as the kilometres tick down….  Wow!  My race report is over on Podium Café – but here are the videos I’ve found.

the race highlights, with interviews (including in English)

The hour of Italian tv:

and here’s a fan-video of the first climb of the day, where the big escape happened

OMG OMG OMG!  Yeah, you know I’m an Emma Pooley fan!  She very kindly answered some questions about how the race felt, especially after such a bad start to the Giro, along with Amanda Spratt‘s Stage 6 Q&A, and some answers from Jolien D’Hoore on her first Giro.  It’s all over here on Podium Café, go and read it!

Anna van der Breggen was second – she describes the race, in English, in the Rabo-Liv video
