Pozzo was the first of the GC contenders to have a problem for bad luck.. that uses to have his influence the rest of the race.

He's currently enjoying a strong third week! Best GC rider if we look at time gains.

Most consistent climber in the race. Hope he gains more time today.

Too bad he is so tiny. He'll lose a lot in the TT.

I'd love to see Pozzo get on the podium, but don't think it's possible. Hopefully he tries something, he's looked good the last few days compared to the other GC riders.

Would be a great story if Domi can finish top 3.

Pink Pozzo would be perfect.

The last couple of days the Danish commentators having been talking about how he "isn't really seen, yet is just there during the finale."
Doh. Of course he isn't really seen. All he has to do is duck behind any of the other riders - except maybe Quintana - and he's gone.

A bit late to the party, but I remember reading an article back in November - I think it was - in which he revealed that he was following another University course, because obviously having one degree just isn't enough. Jeez, man. Stick to one thing like a normal person.

His TT is more down than up and his climbing has been more consistent in this race but he can be hit and miss. Good ride so far.

He's been the least visible of the riders in the top 6 by far. I hope he doesn't podium.

That would be great to see him win Tour de Suisse. I'm cheering for him.

If Pozzo keeps this form and doesn't lose much time in the first week he may well at least podium in the Giro. The lack of too many ITT kilometres is a clear advantage for him.

Pozzo "Thomson’s Gazelle" Vivo has been impressive in the sprints this year. :D

I still remember the days when he got dropped by 2 secs in a reduced 6-man sprint in the Giro only considering of climbers.

He once came 5th in a two-man sprint

If the Giro would start tomorrow he'd be a favourite for a podium spot, but sadly we still have 2 weeks to go, gts are long and he has faded before.

Very solid performance today. Hope Pozzo and Lopez will attack on Etna already.

Great ride today! Hoping that he will keep his great form until the end, but won't be easy...
Riposa in pace, Michele!

Grande Pozzo. With Sivtsov gone I hope he'll still have a few guys around him when the going gets tough.
