He couldn't cope with the speed in the end.Don't know why he lost today 10 seconds. He is now 12 seconds down on Rui Costa in the GC.
Maybe trying to give his competitors a chance? To make race more interesting for fans?
Who knows what is the Fausto strategy.
Tomorrow first chance to show the climbing legs after a strong winter
They're definitely not gonna make the "Portuguese Zubeldia" their GC leader for any race.I said since last spring that Quickstep should be Masnads as gc leader in the Giro instead of Porutuguese Zubeldia or Belgian Spilak. They didn't listen, but it's clear they won't make the same mistake. He can genuinely win the giro, what will stop him.
