considering that if Purito wins in Bola will have an extra 20' + I think only in the last 500 meters can have 30/35 seconds it makes: 55 seconds only in one acceleration...

If Purito's lost is only 1.30, he can win the vuelta.

Nibali is not Cancellera neither

There's to keep in mind that we donno yet how they did recover, both Nibali and Rodriguez; for example Nibali cracked yesterday in the last 800metres or so.

Plus it's the day after the rest day; some guys feel much better, some guys not.

I read that Katyusha wanted him to focus on the Tour next season. I hope they'll reconsider after today's results.

In the short term, he doesn't deny he'd like to help Mosquera next Saturday. You read it here first:

After being one of the riders with the most competitive kms this year, Purito will go to Australia for another exhausting trip. Pretty amazing.

Look's like the Bola del Mundo stage is going to be mighty decisive. If push comes to shove Purito will help Mosquera, otherwise the media will crucify him. But, before that, Xacobeo-Galicia have to control the race to ensure Ezequiel can come in # 1 and get the 20 second time bonus.

I think it can be done. I think the Spaniard can do it. Francesco is not that strong and he will be attacked left and right up the Bola del Mundo. If Cotobello gave him problems... he's certainly not going to enjoy kilometers 18 to 22 of the Bola del Mundo climb. Any signs of weakness and he will be "skinned" alive.

And, as luck would have it, Xacobeo-Galicia have already scouted the Bola del Mundo climb back in July of this year (how the heck did they know it was going to be this close?!) while they were taking part in the Vuelta a Madrid:

More pics.

This is going to be an awesome day for cycling.

Venga Nibali!

You can do it!

Why I can see Rodriguez wanting to help get Mosquera the win because his own hopes are over, how realistic is this? I think that Rodriguez's main goal is to jump ahead of the Schleck and Vellits to try to get back on the podium. Granted Vellits is nearly 2 minutes ahead of him, but that is nearly the same gap that Rodriguez beat him by in Stage 16.

What awesomness from J rod.

Owns both mountain stages.

3rd best climber in the world.

I think he actually might be able to challenge Gilberts lead in World Tour. 2nd places in Amstel Fleche, then 5th in Giro now 2 Dauphine stages, a good position, and hopefully more to come in September.

It was clear he was coming good right at the end of the giro. I truly believe he could have come close to 2nd on that parcours.
