No wonder it shook up the General Classification all over again! Check out the videos, photos, race reports, and tweetery. As always, I’ll be editing in more video, photos and reports as I see them – please do share anything I’ve missed in the comments, or tell me on twitter. You can find my previous collections of videos from the race under my Giro Rosa 2016 tag
