Well, the distance clearly did him in at LBL, so it could be a weakness.

And Nibali's podium finishers in the Vuelta were Mosquera and P.Velits for crying out loud
Mosquera has dropped many a big name rider at the Vuelta, including Valverde, Basso, Evans, Samu when they were "on form." That guy was no joke.

well if inglisnky wasn't on a really super day he would have won the race so i don't think we can really fault him there. yes he was spent at the end but the chase behind him was certainly much more active then back in 09 when andy soloed from almost the bottom of the RaF and every1 spent over 10km till saint nicolas looking at eachother.

he never had much more then 20 seconds to the second group of the road (that wasn't the gilbert group we were being shown on TV for most of the time) while schleck still easily increased his gap on the flat up to saint nicolas up to over 1 minute iirc.

This Giro keeps getting better. Too bad I'll probably see a maximum of 6 stages live.
