Did he? I don't remember seeing it confirmed. Even his teams' doc said he wasn't sure about Rujano's claim.

To me it seemed a clear PMS case

I remember Savio admitting that he had mono but criticizing him because there were only traces of it in his blood work. Which means he had it throughout his Giro prep and was probably still affected by it during the race.

It happens, but overlooking post #2 in a thread is kinda embarrassing

Thanks you for confirming he was sick during the Giro. Of course if the team doctor couldn't detect it, it begs the question how much the sickness was really effecting him during the race.

With Rujano, is seems he can either be really good, or really bad. So the question here is, with his move to the world tour, will he be really good or really bad?

"While it’s not my intention to have an argument with the rider, I have to intervene since nobody can be allowed to alter the reality of the facts and cast doubt on the professionalism of those who work for our team," Savio said. "Rujano maintains that his Giro abandon was caused by mononucleosis, but the blood tests didn’t show mononucleosis in an acute phase, but rather traces of a previous exposure to the virus."

Well If I were Vac I would send Rujano to a GT with another leader... someone who is more likely to do decently. Maybe Tomas. Then if Rujano does end up doing well, its not like he stealing leadership from De Gendt or anything.

As if the world's best time trialist and reigning TDF champ doesn't provide enough balance? LOL! Those who believe in a mythical climbers vs. time trialists battle on this course really shouldn't complain.

There will be several of them with GC aspirations, regardless. Porte wants to have a Froome-like role, and Rabobank will have Kelderman and/or Gesink.

If Gesink starts it would be a nice addition, but before announcing Kelderman as a GC contender perhaps he should try a GT first.

Not buying Porte at this point.

Would like one more TT'er on a separate team.

Alternatively send.him to.a gt that isn't your most important one so if he fails, you haven't lost that much and if he succeeds- great.

Worlds best time trialist? a good case can be made but a better one for 2 others.

It would be great if he does have the motivation though, the 2nd best climber in the world (or was it 3rd?) would definitely make Wiggo hurt in the mountains. And it does sound like he is committing himself to the sport more, targeting Vuelta and worlds as well as the Giro.
he had mono/pfeiffer. already starting in trentino, where the signs. the doctor and savio were full of *** although savio quitely admitted later on after having him tested that it was true. he had ti already back from april, which explains his riding in trentino where he blew a few times.. they needed a scapegoat anyway and rujano having the bad reputation, while savio has a far worse reputation of treating (especially south american) riders like s***
