What happened with Dombrowski? I heard two different versions of the story.
Another CN article published earlier this evening said Dombrowski was asked to wait for Urán by the Cannondale DS.Anderis said:Which 2 versions?
Doesn't this answer your question?
Yeah, Joe was really mad about the whole situationAnderis said:I think it was pretty obvious he wasn't asked to wait for Uran. He didn't take a single pull as he came back to Uran's group. There was an acceleration in the frount group and a small split occured. Dombrowski tried to bridge it himself but he didn't manage it, cooked himself, started looking around for help, saw other riders accelerating and jumping across but didn't have it in him to follow them, then was left alone and he is too poor on flat to save himself in situation like this.
Joe may have broken your bank account, but Cannondale's breaking our heart every day.Valv.Piti said:I lost 800 DKK on Dombro today finishing ahead of Visconti. I think I know what it feels like to be a Garmin-fan now. Sure money down the drain, Joeeeeeee
Ok, my bad.CheckMyPecs said:
I'm fearful they will use and abuse everyone to try and get a stage win for Uran.Anderis said:I'm sure they'll be throwing riders to breaks left right and centre during the next 2 days. Hopefully with more luck than recently.
Dombrowski and Cardoso should try on Saturday. There will be no flat before the first climb.
I'd have someone who can pull on the flat if needed. Brambilla doesn't really fit the role.Mayomaniac said:Ok, my bad.
It's going to be hard for Moser.
Nibali, Aru and Rosa are a given, all the others will have to fight for the 2 remaining spots. Ulissi will probably get one (Cassani always had a soft spot for him), so guys like Moser, Brambilla, De Marchi, Pozzovivo will fight for the final spot.
Brambilla is a teamplayer and is having a great season, so he'll probably take the final spot, but that's just me speculating.
Isn't there a rule that ITT participants have to start in a Road Race as well?SafeBet said:Moser will likely ride the ITT.
I'm afraid it's possible. Sometimes Cannondale takes too much work on themselves while others just sit up and save themselves. Good example was today, when Navardauskas was pulling the group almost alone depiste the fact there were other teams with 2 riders. The result was that Etixx had 2 fresh riders for the final climbs. I sometimes wish Cannondale were using their numbers smarter.Moviefan1203 said:I'm fearful they will use and abuse everyone to try and get a stage win for Uran.
He's brought following wheels to another level. I like him as a person (for what I know of him), I like him in one day races, but in GTs he's become really overrated and this Giro is the confirmation. He said he wants to win a stage and tomorrow is his last chance. Let's see what is he going to do tomorrow.CheckMyPecs said:Urán up to 8th overall.
