Today's other blog post examines events on Stage 9 of the Giro d'Italia. Those following the race will know that Stage 10 also brought plenty of drama. Yesterday, Richie Porte was penalised 2 minutes for accepting an offer of help from a cyclist from a rival team after Porte received a puncture. Plenty of cyclists have criticised the implementation of the rule. The Australians and Sky are not pleased (see Business Insider Australia account here and the reaction of Sky's team principle here).
