    Hatch saying it's due to another "natural break" for Dumoulin.

    Is this going to be the only/most exciting time trial in history?

    Giro has set a fairly high bar for this stuff tbf:



    (the speed of that bike swap remains about #7 on the list of most impressive feats I have witnessed during a cycle race)
