The most amazing part of this is that there hasn't been a death in a grand tour in over 15 years.

The Giro is going to have to scale back though. The course layout has gotten out of control and there has been major safety concerns in the past.

some of the speeds at which these guys descend is outright lunacy. I get shaky descending over an overpass at 32mph and I'm riding the breaks down.

My fat out of shape arse has gotten over 45 on my Cervelo on a big hill. Those pros get way over that.
