Three rain jackets for Kohl in Italy

T-Mobile's Bernhard Kohl had been looking forward to the mountain stage of Tirreno Adriatico, but the weather put an end to his plans as snowfall caused the high mountains to be basically eliminated from the course of Monday's stage six. But the weather was not finished with its tricks, as Kohl found out.

"At the start the weather was, as usual, awful," Kohl said on his personal website. "We started with three degrees and rain. To be on the safe side, I put on every piece of clothing I had with me. I felt like the Michelin man. But as usual, 'whatever you do is wrong', and after an hour it stopped raining and started to warm up. I practically had a heat stroke, before I could take off my three (!) rain jackets. Hopefully, the weather will be nice to us on the last day," he added.
