He's riding the Giro? Very good news. I hope his current form is very far off his peak, just slowly building up for the Giro, hitting top form in the 3rd week. I confess to not knowing him before today, but it's already clear he can bring the entertainment. Terrific climbing, and I'm told he's very good on a TT bike as well.

Haven't you seen him in Pais Vasco? He finished third in a sprint, that's when it caught my eye. Then I discovered he can really climb. Then I found out that his specialty is TT. All the ingredients for greatness. If he's in it, Giro will be fun.

I saw him riding in sandshoes back in 2010 so I always knew he was going to make it big.

Not sure if he is actually riding the giro, but he is on the non confirmed list on PCS.

150/1 on SkyBet by the way.

He is one of my fav riders
So happy for him
He said that romandie is his major goal. In giro, trofumov will lead the team

Forzza Zakarin!
Kill them tomorrow! Russian machine _O_
 
This is the PRR, not the Clinic. To make people better understand this, I just edited the title so that it's not equal to the clinic one and it fits into the title pattern of the PRR threads.

A hundred times this. Hope we got a new Menchov on our hands.

Hope he wins Romandie just to rub it in to the Anglo's and specially to Cookson and the SKY Bots who are trying to destroy cycling in Russia and Kazakhstan.

Shouldn't ride the Giro. Should mainly concentrate on one week stage races for now.

And if any forum posters haven't heard of him until Pais Vasco, it's a big shame.

It means that they haven't followed Junior cycling in the past few years at all.

I can't see that his current form is very far off his peak, that would be too frightening. He certainly is a great all-round rider.

Purito got his sucessor.

Zakarin is just a beast. He will be a multiple Tour winner for sure.
