According to the QS race report, they knew in advance that Hodeg would probably get dropped on the hill in Turkey, so they already planned to ride for Richeze. That sounds a bit concerning when it comes to Hodeg’s durability. Getting dropped is one thing, the team knowing you couldn’t hold on in advance is another. Hopefully this is something he can improve and not a case of Guardini syndrome.

Is he the first Colombian to make the pro ranks who can’t climb at all?

Hodeg is Kittelesque. This should surprise absolutely no one.

And since we're talking about him, I want to point out it's pronounced "Hodge". It's an english name, just spelled a little differently but the pronounciation is the same.

Now somebody please inform commentators of that...

"I promised to tell you a small secret. The secret is related to my name: H-O-D-G-E. Yes, you read it correct. About four years ago, I realized my name had been changed. Not my first name, Álvaro, but my surname, Hodge. Somehow and suddenly my identity papers said Hodeg and not Hodge, like it used to and like my family name is spelled.
I never got to do anything about it, so now everybody knows me as Hodeg, even my website is called Alvarohodeg.com, but the correct spelling and pronunciation is actually Hodge – which to be fair, nobody in Colombia really understood how to pronounce. I inherited it from my great-grandfather, who was Scottish but left his country during the war with the hope of finding a place to settle down with better life opportunities. He came by boat, believing he was in the United States, but in fact he had arrived in Cartagena, Colombia. I am glad he did!"

I had never realized how big he is. 76 kg is the weight listed on his team profile.

For 1,76kg. For reference Viviani is 8kg lighter, Gaviria 5kg, Bennett 7kg, and they're all taller than him. So he really is all muscle even for a sprinter

The Colombian Sergei Gonchar
Gonchar eventually managed to get it corrected in his mid 30s.

The strange thing was that the Danish commentators yesterday talked about exactly that and agreed to alternate the pronunciations to keep listeners at their toes :D

I guess because they had only heard English-speaking people call him Hodge and didn't know that he calls himself that. But they did know that it was of Scottish origin.

Brian Holm (his own director) calls him Hodge though. But when he started commentating he kept calling Edvald Boasson Hagen Edvald Hagen Boasson even though he had been directing him :rolleyes:

I might have mentioned this before, but the first time I read that story I seriously imagined his great-grandfather in a row-boat!

And, talking about weird pronunciations; what the hell was Lander calling Colbrelli during Piemonte?

Nice little win by Lutsenko.
Hopefully he can play a big role in GdL.
