Five questions for the second week of the Giro d’Italia

The panorama atop the Blockhaus allows clear views of the Adriatic coast, and when the Giro d’Italia gruppo reached the summit at the end of stage 9, they will have noticed something else about the vista: the road won’t climb above 1,000 metres for another week.

The high mountains don’t reappear on the horizon of the Giro until next Sunday when the race enters the Alps with an arduous afternoon in the Val d’Aosta. Stage 15 features the category 1 ascents of Pila-Les Fleurs and Verrogne ahead of the long yet steady ascent to the finish in Cogne. But before the Giro d’Italia reaches that next set-piece occasion, the peloton tackles a second week dotted with stages that are open to a variety of interpretations.
