Default Rigoberto Uran discussion thread.

Couldnt find one of him, and didnt know where else to post this interview with him.

http://www.elpedaldefrodo.com/rigoberto-uran-sky/


Either way he deserves his.own thread by now.since he is rapidly making a place for.himself at the very top of the peloton and definately good enough to get his own team if he wanted it.


Basically talks about his career.from.first getting on a bike.to.the present. The races he won the injuries he had the teams he was with fellow.Colombians who are coming through, the usual.

Also the future his aims for this season- ardennes and world championships.
His career aim - to podium a grand tour.

As Walter Sobchuk would say: "Dude, appreciation thread is not the preferred nomenclature. Discussion thread, please."

On topic, interesting that he mentions the WC, he'll be one favourites there surely.

I have no idea. Ask Ryo

Well can't say I'm a huge fan of Emma, we might find some better singers.

He is along with Henao on "slaving duties" for Wiggo...

Rigo should be given more freedom to aim for other races, because he's just winning the left overs of the season & what Sky Lords aren't interested in ...

Sadly his career aim rather gives the game away. Was a very exciting talent a few years back, and has now matured in to a very good, but not great rider. Podium seems a sensible target if a weaker field comes along at some point.
