it looks like Hamilton was the strongest on the longer climb, but Fabbro was only a bit behind him at the top of the climb.


Must be frustrating for Lucas to be in decisive move every time but not win cause he doesn't have a sprint. Today again second (this time behind Powless).

I dont think he is very slow though, Riabushenko is pretty fast, not sure about Powless. But Hamilton will get his wins this season. I have always seen him as more of a climber so that he is doing what he is doing atm bodes really well for what is to come.

Riabushenko isn't just a pretty fast one day racer, last year he dominated Bassano-Monte Grappa, pretty much a climbers classic, and won 58 seconds ahead of Matteo Fabbro, really impressive.
The sheer amount of great Aussie climbing prospects that we've seen in the last few years is pretty impressive.

Recently Zahiri Abderrahim got a few decent results, 16th in the Giro del Belvedere, ahead of strong riders like Patrick Müller and Logan Owen, and 27th in the Giro dell'Appennino, when he arrived with the 10 men group that was fighting for the 20th place.
He's not your typical Moroccan rider, he's a short and rather stocky climber (159cm tall and 57kg heavy).
Last year he rode for the Centre Mondial du Cyclisme, so he already rode many races on French soil and in Switzerland.
Speaking of Centre Mondial du Cyclisme riders, has anyone signed Jose Luis Rodriguez who rode for them last year and managed to finish 9th on gc in the Giro Ciclistico Valle d'Aosta?

Nicola Conci wins the GP Industria e Commercio. Jai Hindley second. Eddie Dunbar third. Matteo Sobrero fourth. It seems from various reports that the race was basically determined by Dunbar going ballistic every time the 1 km climb on the finishing circuit came around and these were the guys he couldn't get rid of.

It also appears from the podium photos that Conci is about two foot taller than Hindley and Dunbar.

(Edited to add: how did I miss that this result had already been posted?)

He had an offer from Trek on the table, but he wanted to stay in Chile another year due to family reasons.

So... are the Australians finaly gonna win something instead of being second all the time :D
I like that they're doing more european races this year, they'll ride Aosta again this year too (and are definitely the favorite there).

João Almeida from Portugal wins the Strade Bianche stage. He is riding for the italian team Unieuro Trevigiani and is in his first espoir year. Interesting guy, it seems.

Probably a good sign for his future that he's on a foreign team already as it can be a bit tricky to get out of Portugal.

Riabushenko is scary strong, one of the strongest riders riding for an Italian team.
Almeida recently won a stage in the Tour of Mersin and finished 8th on gc and from what I've heard the guy is scary strong, last year he won every single stage(!) of the Volta a Portugal de juniores. His teammate Zahiri Abderrahim also finished in the top 10 once again.
Unieuro lost a lot of riders and had to make a deal with the Bulgarian Federation to make ends meet, but they've got a few really interesting young riders from all around the world.

João Aalmeida dominated in portugal since he was 15. He was like 2 or 3 times both TT and road champion. Maybe this year he will win both again.

I just realized that there's a Rcop Belarus team (they rode Toscana Terra di Ciclismo Eroica). That's probably the best team name since Vino 4ever. :D

I don't think Kämna will turn out to be a GC contender in the future. His results in the hilly stages in Romandie and Catalunya are very promising, but in both races he lost a lot of time in the real mountain stages.

He's still really young, and could go the way of Dumoulin and potentially Dennis (and a lot of other strong time trialers who have succeded becoming GC riders in the past). Anyway, he's one immense TT talent.
