Cogombre said:Yes, difference being that the winner of the queen stage is in Euskaltel's squad, while Saxo couldn't really bring much to the Giro?
The Hitch said:Well Arnout also mentioned winning Zoncolan as a big point and yet Anton isnt in EE's Giro squad.
Maybe if he didnt want this counterpoint to be made he should have simply said - they have the winner of the queen stage last year, full stop, rather than mentioning Anton too.
Arnout said:I don't care about counterpoints and points, I care about what's happened and results of those events. Euskaltel won two stages, two big ones as well, so another invite is not only stupidity but also a reward for actions in the past. It doesn't really matter who they send to the race, apparently they take the race seriously and they are the ones making the team selection.
Saxo is a whole different case. Rightfully or not, that trial did happen so you cannot really compare it.
The Hitch said:Trial makes no difference their giro squad would have been the same anyway. Say there was no trial. you would defend that squad based on what contador did last year ?
Duartista said:Vuelta a Asturias will be 3 days this year. The stages will probably be Oviedo-Gijon, Aviles-Aviles, and the Subida al Naranco.
I missed it last year, I don't remember why exactly. The previous year was also excellent, with Duarte's win on the Acebo and then the Colombian implosion on the final (excellently designed) stage over San Lorenzo, with Zaballa attacking on the descent. I guess it's just a holding operation really - keeping the race alive until the Spanish economic outlook improves (however many years that may take).Libertine Seguros said:No Acebo makes me sad. The climb up there after Pozo de las Mujeres Muertas in the pouring rain in last year's race was one of the stages of the year, with Zaballa attacking at the front with Broco, with Suárez, Pasamontes and Izagirre in the earlier break from the Pozo, with Sérgio Sousa and the Caja Rural duo of José Herrada and Javi Moreno fighting to chase them down, eventually catching the big guns and Moreno breaking away from Zaballa (the last man to be caught) to take the win. Amazing racing.
