No problem. They worked all the time to keep a safety distance to him. I thought they were fearing him for GC, but now I understand some of opinions here, they didn't care about him they just wanted Covid safety distance.
One more mytical suffering performance by João: chasing alone strongest climbers in the race for kms, with Covid in the lungs, and managing to loose only 1 min mainly due to domestic support. More seriously, hope he recovers well from the infection and can race at top level soon.He might have some symptoms, we don't know. It could explain why he had problems recovering from the previous stage.
Either way, covid can be very aggressive on the lungs and the remaining stages are quite hard. Better safe than sorry.
Exactly… Sadly, since Pantani in Madonna di Campiglio, we have been knowing that the Giro isn‘t over till it‘s over.It would be the ultimate Nibs victory to win it after the top-4 went away with Covid in the last 3 days of the race.
