That said, he is not riding well at all. Maybe because he's trying to stay upright?
The Giro was very hard tho'
I think it's fair to say most riders would be happy with one grand tour win a year.Timmy-loves-Rabo said:Yeah menchov has been dissapointing.
I have to admit, I was one who said he would recover in time for the tour, but clearly his efforts in the Giro has taken its toll. still he wont be too disapointed with the season.
