Pretty decent ITT from Nibali
I think specialized ITT tech team is better about bikes and positions than Cannondale tech team

Makes sense.

Nice article up on CN re: the Shark. There is some meat in here! His views on racing all year, how he likes Astana, how he missed on moving to Sky etc. Seems he is happy there so far. Hopefully with an improved TT position and dedicated strong team he can win the Giro.

For example Cunego won a Giro thanks to time bonuses in 2004.
wtf did you just say Nibbles?

Isn't that about right? I haven't done the math, but Cunego won that Giro by 2 minutes. He had 4 stage wins, so that's at least 80 bonus seconds.

Nibali is a great cyclist. He might not have raw talent but he works hard and races to win throughout the year unlike others who are only interested in winning one particular race during a season.

He is in front of his most important goal of his career. Winning the Giro for first time beating Wiggins and SKY would make him one of the greats of this era.

I agree he hasn't a top engine
