What a contrast to Stage 7! Not only did the sunshine go in but the rain well and truly came down! Conditions were awful really – made even more dangerous because it was the first mountain stage, not only with serious climbing but serious descending too – very tricky and tough.

This image shows Mattia Cattaneo battling through the wet at 144.2km.

Grim!
