Giro d’Italia 2014: stage 12 – rider reaction

Twitter responds to Rigoberto Uran's individual time trial success

Despite dominating in the mountains over generations, no Colombian had ever pulled on the maglia rosa until Rigoberto Uran stormed into the overall lead of this year’s Giro d’Italia with stage 12 time trial victory.

Uran obliterated his rivals on the testing circuit, with no other rider coming with a minute of his time, and the Omega Pharma-Quickstep rider was the toast of the Belgian super team post-stage.

But while Twitter was congratulating Uran, his former Team Sky team-mate, Bernhard Eisel, was forced to confess to a low-speed crash during his own effort.

From Omega Pharma-Quickstep to Eisel to Luka Mezgec’s race-saving meal, we’ve rounded up the best rider reaction below.
