well, the "machado will attack" joke didn't came out of nowhere. he has always been a extremely aggressive rider. a shame he always mistimes his attacks and/or lacks the legs to finish it of.
today was another great show of great tactical sense by him, attacking 46k from the finish
btw he just posted this on facebook:
Dia bem duro, mas consegui terminar com o mesmo tempo do vencedor! Ainda tentei a minha sorte perto do final, atacando a cerca de 5km do final Sendo apanhado já dentro dos últimos 2km!!! As sensações foram boas, mas os adversários estão fortes! Há que continuar lutando...
"tough day, but i still managed to finish with the same time as the winner. i tried my luck near the end attacking 5k from the line but ended up getting caught inside the last 2. the sensations were good but the adversaries are strong. got to keep fighting. . ."
i predict attacking from 100k out on willunga
