Got Any Snacks? G17-107
Pierre Rolland (Cannondale-Drapac) dropped back to the Vittoria Tires sponsored neutral service car to get a water bottle. After he had gotten that, he gestured to his mouth with a squeezing action apparently trying to get an energy gel or two. The spread of riders all over the course meant that he had missed his chance to get any food from his team car and was fearing that he might bonk on the way into the finale in Bergamo. With just 13 kilometers left to race the fact that he couldn't get any gels probably won't have any effect on his nutrition before the finish. However, riders must be sure not to deplete their reserves, after all tomorrow they must race again. Actually, tomorrow is a rest day, but the basic rule still applies.
