Astana may have been visible, but Pinot dealt with them almost single handedly.

5 fun stages with great racing. I really hate this generic name though. "Tour of Alps" sounds like a amateur race for middle aged men with beer guts.

Padun is looking great, last year he was already the strongest guy on the Italian U23 scene (alongside Riabushenko) and he looks like the real deal.

Great win for Padun. A pleasure watching this race. Is this Pinot’s biggest stage race win?

Definitely. Considering the field, easy.

any idea why Pozzovivo never got a green jersey although leading the mountain competition (or 2nd behind the overall leader) for two or three days? None available in his size? :D

Well, he got it on the podium, and might have worn it at the beginning of the respective stages.
But, yeah... that might have been the reason. :p

Sosa DNF yesterday, what a bummer. All that because of a drain on the road. Hope he'll be back soon.

Fun fact : That's exactly the reason. :D The organizers didn't anticipate that someone with such a diminutive size could wear that jersey. :o

:lol:

Yeah... a small person wearing the climber's jersey is just too strange. :p After all, climbers are usually pretty big.

I believe you, but, do you have a link to a story that mentions it?

Both. They're 1.62 and 1.65 meters respectively. So I don't get why the organization ain't got no jersey for Pozzovivo!

Man, I do miss Plan de Corones. I dearly want to see this MTT in the Giro again.

I very much hope Padun will be selected for the Giro. He really impressed me in Itzulia and this race. He and Visconti could play a very good role for Pozzovivo.

I hope that they won't burn Padun too early, a bit of rest and maybe the Vuelta as his first gt would be better.
Apparently Pozzovivo got mad because Froome pushed him towards the barriers durning the sprint for 8th place, that's just a d-bag move.

I heard that on french TV, confirmed by Pozzo later on a interview with the reporter on the spot.

Put that link at 1h03m50s, but I don't know if that works outside of France, and I'm not sure that you understand too, sorry that's all I've got. :redface:
