They also dropped him on grappa just before the top and as he got back to them nibali showed that his descending skills are better than that of scarponi.
evans was not in topshape at all that giro

henao will be stronger for gc than uran.

Evans was very good up to and including the Montalcino stage. He caught a cold there iirc and it showed later on in the race.

You dont discard info that you know is correct and accurate just because it is not that new.
