Wait a minute, are we talking about the TT alone, or the end of the second week, as OP said? Because if it's the former, I agree it was very bad, but if it's the latter, Nibali's performance on Saturday goes a long way towards compensating his dismal performance on Sunday.PremierAndrew said:CheckMyPecs said:It was bad, but not particularly so, especially when the previous day he put time into everyone bar Kruiswijk and Chaves.PremierAndrew said:Being the worst among all contenders and losing a minute and a half over a 10.8km climb isn't very bad?
By OP's standards, everyone except these two was "very bad".
Not everyone is supposed to be the favourite for the Giro, and not everyone is supposed to be the best TTist of the favourites. Sure, a mountain TT is more about climbing and less about ability on the flat, but there were still flat sections too
