As far as I remember, it was first towards the end of the climb that Valverde distanced Alberto. So I was never really afraid of him losing the Vuelta that day. And Rodriguez was even further away in the overall, so not a threat.

His 2012 ascent time is 14:13, so it's really quite impressive that he's still in such good shape.

We're now in the off-season. As long as we get updated pictures of him we can still discuss his weight.

I agree with this. They look like they are having fun, but have no clue what they are doing. It's making me laugh even harder since I did play softball both as a young child (co-ed, city league) and again played it in college in a co ed intramural league. (Of course I was one of 3 gals playing in the league, but had a great time.)

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!

Picture made me realize that it's been 10 years since Alberto got Tour in a TV show (see video). As a birthday gift, I believe. How sweet :)

Alberto doesn't look that far off race shape and Tour has eyes only for cake :)
