Can we agree the rules in advance for this one? :wacko:

Yeah I meant the race. We should nominate someone to read the rules on Day1, so we know how many stages and teams are needed to declare a winner.

Ok, starter for 10:
Is 18 Stages a "Grand Tour"?

How will wikipedia list Grand Tour winners, stage winners etc etc in years to come??

I know what your getting at but....for me unless you've had the three weeks it's debatable ? As in look at the Tour ! The third week of the Giro is where it's going to be decided.If the Giro is stopped on Sunday (and I've read speculation it will ?)would Almeida be a worthy winner if he still has pink.Yes but in my head id probally think he only won it because it was cut short.
So on paper maybe,but that's about it.

Yes. Current UCI rules are clear that 14 planned stages are minimum for a Grand Tour.

Let's face it, plenty of past GTs could have lost a few snoozefest stages!
