    Chris Juul Jensen: Giro stage 6

    "Nothing worse for a rider’s morale than dirty socks…" More rain for Chris at the 2014 Giro 

Stage 6

Sassano to Montecassino, 247km

Stage winner: Michael Matthews (Orica-GreenEDGE)

Whenever I leave my room I always try to remember to turn off the lights. Okay, I don’t reuse my hotel towels but I feel hard done by by Mother Nature when it rains every day so far this Giro. I nearly don’t have any clean socks left! Nothing worse for a rider’s morale than dirty socks… today was 240km in good weather and then to shake things up a little, we had rain in the final 20km. Big, big crash close to the finish!! Chaos! Riders and bikes everywhere guys almost crashing just so they wouldn’t feel left out…
