full footage of ricco on aspin, love him or hate for any reason of the many he gave us, watching this guy climbing is just orgasmic. i don't know what i love more, if the ridiculous acceleration, or the simple increase of the pace on the drops to drop lulu and monfort. no amount of doping gives some1 such a beautiful style.
a shame only a few use the drops for climbing this days, i can only think of nibali, evans and valverde and even them is only every once in a while and not all the time like ricco.

I love this one for 3 reasons:
1) It's Robert Millar and he was also first over every other climb of the day (the last of the great climbers?);
2) Greg cracking big style and Fignon digging deep sprinting for the line;
3) Hampsten, catching and passing Greg without a thought of helping him.
OK, make that four. I've still got a Z Jersey that fits;)

I think Soukho and Barinov, among other Soviets, if they came to the West, could have dominated

Just TT and Madrid after that stage. So I guess 19 or 20.

Mikel Nieves win on Val Di Fassa, Giro 2011:
Just watchin this makes me exhausted; 7.5 hours in the saddle (for the winner), everyman for himself, ridiculous timegaps, no grupetto whatsoever.
