Would be great to finally see him with the motivation to go for Giro, Vuelta, and Worlds. I'm not quite convinced he has that motivation though.

With his move to the WorldTour, I wonder if he'll put more focus on more races besides the Giro.

the great thing now, is if the giro fails. he has an entire rest of the season to make it up. including the vuelta.

To be honest I'm more amazed by Vacansoleil ability to contract dubious GT riders. Rujano won't perform this year. He is free to amaze me though :)

I have serious doubts in the way Vacansoleil helps their riders through hard times. With Devolder it didnt looked so well.

devolder is a total idiot anyway and was already f'd up from before going to vacansoleil. rujano doesn;t need any guidance. he is his own motivator or perhaps savio motivated him, because he really hates him now.

why wouldn't he be motivated?

I don't think he showed a ton of motivation this year, exiting the Giro even when the team doctor said there wasn't anything wrong with him for example. Then again, I forget if it was confirmed that he was sick during the Giro or not.

It would be great if he does have the motivation though, the 2nd best climber in the world (or was it 3rd?) would definitely make Wiggo hurt in the mountains. And it does sound like he is committing himself to the sport more, targeting Vuelta and worlds as well as the Giro.

He had mononucleosis ffs.

Did he? I don't remember seeing it confirmed. Even his teams' doc said he wasn't sure about Rujano's claim.

To me it seemed a clear PMS case :D

I remember Savio admitting that he had mono but criticizing him because there were only traces of it in his blood work. Which means he had it throughout his Giro prep and was probably still affected by it during the race.

Thanks you for confirming he was sick during the Giro. Of course if the team doctor couldn't detect it, it begs the question how much the sickness was really effecting him during the race.

With Rujano, is seems he can either be really good, or really bad. So the question here is, with his move to the world tour, will he be really good or really bad?

"While it’s not my intention to have an argument with the rider, I have to intervene since nobody can be allowed to alter the reality of the facts and cast doubt on the professionalism of those who work for our team," Savio said. "Rujano maintains that his Giro abandon was caused by mononucleosis, but the blood tests didn’t show mononucleosis in an acute phase, but rather traces of a previous exposure to the virus."
