    “Business as usual” is Alex Dowsett’s verdict on this year’s remarkable Giro D’Italia “People were like ‘this is an epic Giro’ and we’re like, is it? It’s just hard.”


    The Katusha-Alpecin rider attracted an appreciative audience for his social media updates throughout the Italian race, and says he’s going to carry on tweeting from inside the peloton. He also gives us his view on the controversial Stage 19. And staying with controversy, Rouleur’s Stuart Clapp tries on Oakley’s “upside-down” Flightjackets.
