Fantastic stuff, unfortunately the medical part was a bit of a bridge too far for my basic Spanish. Also I would have liked it to be more chronological, but that's personal of course.

Interesting thing that his mother said she'd absolutely refuse to do it all over again.

Nibali becomes only the 6th winner of all 3 GTS (2014)!
Nibali joins Gimondi, Merckx and Hinault as only the 4th man to win all 3 GTS and 2 different Monuments (2018). A throwback rider in this age of specialization. Bravo!

"No Alberto, I refuse to go through all this cycling crap again. You're just gonna play football, just like all other Spanish kids."
"But mom, in football you need a good team to attack well"
"Oh mierda"





No idea honestly

Thanks. Watching your son have a stroke on the road and worrying every time he crashes could be stressful I'm sure!

Nice...difficult for the young guys :)

Maybe you should start a thread reg. Polartec-Kometa,Flo? I got a feeling you're gonna follow them closely ;)

There's some interesting names in there, I have hopes for a.o. Gazzoli and Wilson Estiben (my unique pick in the zero points CQ game). Wonder how many invitations they'll receive for bigger races, but the Spanish 2.1 races should be almost a given...

.HC is the highest possible for a conti team, I guess they'll mostly ride .2 and a few .1 races. That should be tough enough for a U23 team :) Gazzoli imo is the biggest prospect on the team but there are several others, Wilson Estiben Peña will be interesting to follow as we have no idea how he'll do on the road

I thought about starting a thread but not sure how many others would contribute. Otoh maybe it would be better for this thread to remain about news and views of Berto :) like when he went for a ride with the Garzelli family this weekend

Very cool news, now let's see them sign up another fluent English speaker to take over from Kirby! Can you imagine Contador doing even a 10min stint alongside Kirby! :D :D :D :D

I think he's a little commentary before during GTs he wasn't riding or something?
