Stage 15 was always going to be a big, memorable day. I’m trying to find another word for epic, but you know what I mean. The Giro crossed over the border into France with a mountain-top finish at Col du Galibier, one of the great Tour de France mountain passes. Only once in 100 years has a Stage of the Tour de France finished at the top of Galibier (2011), and this was to be the first time that the Giro d’Italia has climbed up this mythical pass. And as it turned out, it was an amazing day of cycling and adventure.
