Okay let me bump this thread before Bernal shows his talent again this week, Bernal is going to ride in Settimana Coppi e Bartali, great route with stage 2 and 4 that should suit Bernal. The field is not superb but very interesting with a lot of young talents competing (for example also the first pro race for young climber Girdlestone who is from 97 just like Bernal), will be a great race to follow and I think Bernal will do really well here.
 
Decent ttt by his team today. A good sign that he was put in the 'fast' team for Androni.

Daniel Felipe Martinez is also here and could be very interesting. One year older than Bernal and coming from the track unlike Bernal who is a MTB rider but a bit similar type wise i'd say

Yes good TTT for him, it is a bummer for Bernal that Pellizotti and Taliani have now abandoned the race that are two climbing domestics gone.

I also wrote about Daniel Felipe Martinez (see the link in the OP) their TTT was also nice, could be a Colombian show in todays stage and especially stage 4 with Bernal, Torres, Martinez and Henao (I saw on the sky site he is the leader though they probably go in open minded with Henao, Moscon and Landa protected).

He was about to win today, placed an attack on the Monte Tiffi, but then fell and gone were his chances.
Yeah, but the Asphalt was really bad, Firsanov also nearly crashed on the descent.
Bernal looked like the strongest rider, he attacked on Monte Tiffi and caught the guys who attacked on the penultimate lap (Firsanov and Pirazzi) and dropped Pirazzi, only Firsanov was able to stay with him. He probably would have beaten him on the uphill finish, Firsanov was cooked and was grinding a huge gear on the last few km, that was very honcharesque, on the short cobbled final climb he looked like someone who tried to destroy his knees.
 
This boy is truely insane such a shame he crashed, I truely believe he has more talent then all the riders in the current peloton. Hopefully he has no damage from the crash and he can win on sunday.

10th today, nice result
It's a nice result, but also a bit disappointing for him I'm sure. He could've won the GC really, as he lost 1'41 (+ boni's) due to his fall in stage 2. But it does look really, really promising for the future.
He has won the youth jersey competition, though. He looks really promising, that's for sure.

Trentino! It'll be interesting to see what he can do on that route against some of the top climbers in the world (Nibali, Landa, Pozzovivo).
I am also really looking forward to this, it will be his first time riding the real mountains among the pro's!
 
Such a shame, but good to see him near the front and confirm again. He really is something special though we already knew that :p, tomorrow and the day after should give us a good indication as well.
