More like problems on short steep climbs me thinks. Sega di Ala was partly insanely steep yet he was riding on the inside of the curves while passing people.Perhaps he would have always problems in very steep climbs. Roglic's bluff and Kuss's sudden acceleration was a surprise for many. He is still in contention but tomorrow he must be watchfull.
Why would it be Covid? Below are the current stats for Italy, does not look alarming? If he is ill he could just as easily have any type of virus? But it does raise questions on his recovery. My optimism didn’t last long 🙄.Wouldn't be the first time he dropped out of a Giro this late with covid.
As I said, with those gaps anything’s possible! With all the attrition from the previous stages, the fact that they have very similar climbing potential (maybe here JA has a small edge over the others because it will be a tempo climbing managing energy along the way without domestiques) anything can happen. Geraint Thomas is the main favourite but even Almeida still has a chance.
That was a full blown Aru face!Funniest image of the giro. He must've done that face at least partly on purpose!
Were you there live too or just there afterwards? Yeah he seemed to have a ton of fans on place of this giro!That was a full blown Aru face!
Today I climbed Tre Cime (once again) and I was suprised to see how many times his name had been written on the asphalt. Looks like he had the 2nd most fans after Roglic there on the final climb.
I think he should rest. Two GCs are very tiresome. But do you have any info on that?It was a good Giro for him overall, specially that stage win.
I'm curious to see if he's still going to the Tour, like it was predicted. He should be able to get a top 10 in the GC while helping Pogacar,
