    Chris Juul Jensen: Giro stage 5

    "Dear receptionist..." Chris is cold, wet, tired. And a tad irritable. Diary from the 2014 Giro

Stage 5

Taranto to Viggiano, 203km

Stage winner: Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida)

Dear receptionist,

Although I have just come back from a pretty dismal day in the saddle, 200km in wind, rain and climbs, I agree that the effort of typing my full name into your computer system outweighs my daily struggle. 21 letters is quite a lot.

Luckily we have our own master chef and even sponsored pillows and mattresses, so your hotel sucks a lot less!

And to make things even better our two GC riders Rafa [Majka] – was 5th on stage – and Nico [Roche] – put in strong attack on final climb – are flying!
