Someone said about racing in the snow would show who was properly tough.

I said Johan Tschopp, after the 2010 Giro stage where they had to clear several feet of snow to make the Gavia ridable.

Here's a pic:


Johan Tschopp won the stage that day, whilst still riding for Bbox-Bouygues Télécom.

Ferminal refers back to something earlier on the stage. At this point it was by no means sure that the breakaways were going to have enough in them to win the stage, in fact it looked rather unlikely. Tschopp, with very few career highpoints to point to, was left as the strongest climber in the front group (as opposed to the second break behind which had Vino and Sastre in it) along with Gilberto Simoni, who had signed with Lampre specifically to ride that Giro and retire on the end of it. This was the penultimate day, and the aging Gibo had been a non-factor in the race. Gavia was the Cima Coppi, and Gibo wanted it, a final prize to a glorious Giro fighter, to take the highest mountain pass of the race in his last ever mountain stage. He attacked to win it, but Tschopp, noting that the victory seemed unlikely, his team had picked very little up from the Giro and there was a financial incentive to do so as well, had no sympathy for the sentimental prize going to a guy whose career was already far more decorated than his, and outsprinted him.

Gibo didn't seem to.mind. He proceeded to ride to the rai motorcycle and give a live instage interview about how the race was going.
