Slow and steady wins the race. As long as he maintains the first places.
Tibopino can make 2020 great again
. Years ago, I was one of the few who saw something...yes, I was born a short bike ride from his hometown. I'm biased. Always have been, always will be, and you know it. I'm LaFlo and he's my Contador. Pinot is my hometown guy, and as it turns out a good, decent human being, someone I can relate to. Human. Not perfect.
Ups and downs, magic, heartbreaks, the People's Champion is not the winning machine and the most consistent rider there is. But his story is one that Homer, Shakespear, Stendhal or Hugo could have written. His saga is a roller coaster, he makes you sheer, he dares, he fights, and sometimes he fails. He's not a hero, but he tries.
Last year I cried. In the Covid year when we need to celebrate life and justice, a big Pinot win would bring back faith in the most basic values that we share: resiliency, hard work, breaking ceilings, and not see the scum rise to the top again in 2020.
Bernal is the one to beat. Ineos just put us on notice. Jumbo is an elephant. But sometimes the gazelle wins...
