I know that they official reason is that one of his legs is shoter than the other one and that he got a muscular imbalace over the years, but I guess that the rather extreme position with a really hunched lower back that he adopted at Ineos (since 2019) when climbing nearly always seated and grinding a big gear wasn't beneficial either.Wasnt very impressed by Ineos ..I know Moscon is going well but the others are neither here nor there
Sosa what is up with him ? He si never the same two days in a row
Martinez looks good but not that good and Shivakov cant stay on his bike
And we hear Bernal still has back problems
They really dropped the ball on marginal gains in the last few years.I know that they official reason is that one of his legs is shoter than the other one and that he got a muscular imbalace over the years, but I guess that the rather extreme position with a really hunched lower back that he adopted at Ineos (since 2019) when climbing nearly always seated and grinding a big gear wasn't beneficial either.
Let's hope he isn't already peaking because they thought they'll miss the Giro.Cepeda's 4th place on the gc ahead of riders like Sivakov, Carthy, Quintana and Bardet (just to name a few) is a big deal for Androni.
I hope to see him and Sepulveda in the breakaway on the mountain stages of the Giro.
The improvement continues: Froome 73rd
He is absolutely ready for the Tour du Rwanda
Were they also commenting on the restaurants?Riva is a nice place, but waaay to many German, Austrian (and Dutch) tourists. The food and even the beverages in the restaurants are catering to them (Deutscher Kaffee & Deutsche Küche written at the entrance, no thanks!).
I have to say that the commentary on the PMG livestream isn't bad.
Froome's last stage results:
Catalunya Stage 6 - 130th to 139th position
Catalunya Stage 7 - 120th to 129th
Alps Stage 1 - 110th to 119th
Alps Stage 2 - 100th to 109th
Alps Stage 3 - 90th to 99th
Alps Stage 4 - 80th to 89th
Alps Stage 5 - 70th to 79th
Consistent progression. He will finish Romandie TT on the top-20 and will be ready to fight for the win in his next stage race.
The way Martin descended today he never would've won that stage.
TBH, Martinez looked solid. I guess that's the hierarchy of the team. Second stage he soft pedaled to the finish. Fourth stage you know what happened. I guess he understands what his position is at Ineos but I am sure he could have done a lot better.

Imagine you're the team leader, leading all your teammates in GC & making up time on the final stage... & you see your teammate pulling/twiddling his thumbs in the breakaway when you're alone a few seconds behind. Ouch. That was Dan Martin staring at De Marchi's backside up the road today.
