Wiggins finishes Giro, stage 21 time trial in second — only ONE SECOND from winning. Great ride, Wiggo!
Director’s report from Johnny Weltz As not being his favorite discipline Tom had to do more than a good time trial to change his position on GC — he did his best but had to face the fact that the GC stayed the same afterwards. We had Kilian up there who defended it well and [...]
Director’s report from Johnny Weltz As a lot of riders lost 25 minutes yesterday, we where in for a fast start! A lot of breaks went and we where well represented. But nothing got the chance to get away, until a huge group of 22 riders broke clear. We had CJ and Huub in there. [...]
Team Garmin-Slipstream’s ascent of Mount Vesuvius was led by the consistent climbing Tom Danielson who finished just 3:35 behind the stage winner. “I just wanted to ride a good pace up the last climb and build my fitness. It was a really crazy stage with a very dangerous run-in to the climb. Cobbles, cars, dogs, [...]

Cyclingnews’ Shane Stokes [...]
Team Garmin-Slipstream’s Christian Vande Velde is a regular blogger for USA Today. You can read his latest entry in which he details his road to recovery after crashing out of the Giro d’Italia on stage three. Allen Lim is the cycling version of the wolf and right now, my savior. He can turn almost anything [...]
Race report from Top Peterson Milram took control of the race after the break went. Everyday they’ve ridden an exceptionally fast tempo so I suppose they expect Linus to perform. Over the first climb the race exploded and I was able to make the selection. The rest of the stage was also quite selective and [...]
Team Garmin-Slipstream’s Giro fortunes changed Thursday on stage 18 with Danny Pate and Julian Dean making it into the day’s main break that survived all the way to the finish line in Benevento.

Stage report from Chris Sutton Well it was a good day! My legs weren’t too good at the start, which is normal. My last race was Roubaix! But the boys were awesome leading me into the finish. It was a fast start in the beginning. A group of 10 riders were off the front and [...]
Race report from Dan Martin It was definitely a week split in two, as far as significance with the GC being set after stage 4 and then with the final three bunch sprints, but that is just what the results said. This was a seriously hard week of bike racing! The last two days were [...]

Team Garmin-Slipstream’s sprinter Tyler Farrar talks to CycleTo about racing with the top sprinters in the world, fighting through the mountain climbs and coming very close to taking a stage win of his own.
Race report from Johnny Weltz Once again it was a fast start. We started with 10km on flat roads then a bumby ride inland where a lot of attacks went off but with no fruit. Once the climbs started there was a big crash where Cozza was involved — later he had to pack it [...]
