In our last analysis, shown in Figure 8, we take a look at how the GC winner moves within the GC as the race matures. The figure is a bit complex, but what you see is the following:

  • The horizontal axis shows each stage of the race, the vertical axis is the time difference with respect to the GC leader after each stage.

  • Each line is the overall GC winner from 2012 up to now. So from each year there is one name.

  • The height of the line shows the lead (negative values) or the lag of the GC winner from stage 1 until the end. If the dot is above 0 the GC winner is still behind, once the dot is below zero the GC winner is in the lead. The further below zero it gets the larger the gap with the runnerup in the general classification.

  • The figure is interactive so by hovering over the dots you can see the exact details and the full GC top 3.

Giro d’Italia forecasts will follow later. The Giro will be the first race where we try to provide individual stage forecasts in addition to our poule forecasts.
