    Chris Juul-Jensen: Giro stage 8

    "Weird feeling being in grupetto - a sense of relief and comfort there are others struggling." Chris battles on at the 2014 Giro

 

Stage 8

Foligno to Montecopiolo, 179km

Stage winner: Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida)

First real mountain stage. Bad fever last night. Was ok this morning. Concentrating on getting through to rest day. Was a hard start, I got dropped about here. Weird feeling being in grupetto - a sense of relief and comfort there are others struggling. Yet feeling also of being completely alone. Also a strange feeling of restlessness… will we make the time cut? I can’t do maths off the bike, definitely can’t on the bike, so trying to figure out the time cut is impossible for me… we were fine today though.
