"Like what are these muscles I haven’t used for years?!”"American champion explains why a team car wasn't there, and how a Cannonodale was returned to him in breakawaywww.cyclingnews.com
(Awful clickbait headline.) He sounds genuinely nice and funny!
From what I've heard his team and the PCT Bingoal team are merging after this season is over.Just curious...with the success of so many CX riders, does anyone know if Eli Iserbyt does much racing on the road, or if he has plans to do so?? I love watching him in the winter and would love to see him in more road action...thanks!
Wouldn't except to much of him tbh.Just curious...with the success of so many CX riders, does anyone know if Eli Iserbyt does much racing on the road, or if he has plans to do so?? I love watching him in the winter and would love to see him in more road action...thanks!
Bit harsch. Not exactly a race where one could expect him to shine.Wouldn't except to much of him tbh.
I remember him being in the early break in Belgian Championship last september.
A break with 20+ riders where he didn't have to do any of the work and still he dropped out with more then 50k's to go.
It could have been because of his CX training, but still, pretty dissapointing.
Difficult to tell at this point. Could become the new Tony Martin, but i wouldn't rule out that he can become a GT contender, though from what i've seen so far, i would also think it's a bit less likely. I think he also doesn't know himself at this point where his future lies. To be honest, i didn't read the entire article.Plapp strikes me as more of a classics and one week stage racer - He's very talented but will need time - Think he will ride as a stagiare after the Olympics.
Think you'll find his track team pursuit mate Kelland O'Brien will join TBE.Difficult to tell at this point.

With the Olympic Games and the subsequent delay caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Lucas Plapp has essentially forgone his U23 career in pursuit of a Gold medal on the boards of the velodrome in Toky…u23cyclingzone.wordpress.com
So basically he didn't seriously train until 2014 (aged 20), when he left Sicily and joined a team in Tuscany.From Palermo. I looked that up, don't know anything. He has won the Tour of Albania and there had to be some mountains there. This interview: https://www.sportfair.it/2020/01/filippo-fiorelli-intervista-sportfair/1000302/
Also, I wonder if Marijn Van Den Berg will join his older brother on the big boys' team some time soon. He seems to be doing quite well.
- On stage 2, Edoardo Affini, who was second in the points classification, wore the cyclamen jersey, because first placed Filippo Ganna wore the pink jersey as the leader of the general classification. Because Ganna and Affini were also the first two riders in the young rider classification, Tobias Foss, who was third in the young rider classification, wore the white jersey.
- On stage 3, Edoardo Affini, who was second in the young rider classification, wore the white jersey, because first placed Filippo Ganna wore the pink jersey as the leader of the general classification. For the same reason, Tobias Foss wore the white jersey on stage 4.
- On stage 6, Vincenzo Albanese, who was second in the mountains classification, wore the blue jersey, because first placed Joe Dombrowski didn't start the stage after a crash and a subsequent injury late in stage 5.
- On stages 7–9, Remco Evenepoel, who was second in the young rider classification, wore the white jersey, because first placed Attila Valter wore the pink jersey as the leader of the general classification. On stages 10 and 11, Evenepoel continued wearing the white jersey, but with Egan Bernal as the leader of the general classification. For the same reason, Aleksandr Vlasov wore the white jersey on stages 12 and 13.
Vanhoucke apparently had a mechanical in the final of the Montalcino stage. He said he had great legs and felt he missed a huge opportunity. *** happens, but as Campenaerts proved, the time will come eventually.Alessandro Covi is riding into form as the Giro progresses and now has a second and a third in the 2 toughest Giro stages (so far).
I re watched yesterday's final and as he crossed the finish line he told a member of UAE staff that he punctured. Not sure when it happened but it might explain why he stopped gaining time on Fortunato after 1 km of his attack.
Overall I'm happy with how he's riding. Hopefully he keeps getting in breaks.
Couldnt agree more that these three riders deserve to be mentioned after this Giro, very good performances from them!Covi rode a really solid Giro, let's see how far he can go.
Pronskiy was a pleasant surprise, he was pretty much Vlasov's best climbing domestique. I know that he was a big talent, who won the gc in the Giro della Valle d'Aosta in 2018, but sooo many Kazakh riders are great in the u23 ranks only to dissapear afterwards...
Sobrero did a really good final ITT and he's only 63kg heavy. That's pretty light for him to just be a TT specialist, maybe the team should send him to some smaller shorter stage races with a TT and see how he does on the gc? I know that he was always more of a one day racer in the u23 ranks, maybe hilly one day races could be something for him.
