First time ever that a rider wins both the Ronde de l'Isard and the Baby Giro in the same year. Massive win for Sivakov.
He likely also did work for Hamilton/Hindley (this is speculation, but judging from the racing situation given on the ticker), Stannard is a really complete rider and should be the leader of the team next year as Hamilton/Hindley (and maybe Storer) will move to WT.yaco said:Great effort by the 18 year old Stannard to finish 8th in the stage - Surprised how well he climbed - Sivakov and Hamilton ready for WT level - Hindley probably ready but could wait a year.
CT Friuli also raced the Vuelta a Juventud, rather odd for an Italian team, but they did.Bye Bye Bicycle said:Vermeltfoort actually has his best ever pro season this year.
Italy is lacking stage races for amateurs/U23. Apart from the Toscana two day event in April there hasn't been a single stage race on this level in Italy so far in 2017. Giro d'Abruzzo - died years ago. Giro delle Pesche Nettarine - defunct since 2015. Giro delle Regioni - RIP. Giro di Cosenza - gone since 2006. And so on.
Some teams try it abroad instead - Colpack at the Bidasoa Itzulia, CT Friuli in Austria's Bundesliga races, Delio Gallina in Hungary. But it's not the same.
Don't think he has the yellow jersey yet, but after today he's definitely the number one favorite to win this. Guys like Lambrecht aren't even close to his level in the real mountains and with still a MTT and the really hard last stage to go he has enough time to overtake them in the GC.DNP-Old said:Egan Bernal wins!
Pretty disappointed about that, also only 3 mountain stages. Last years route was better imo. Bernal clear favorite now, although you never know with Costa.DNP-Old said:No ITT in this years Avenir.
Gaudu is not there...Samamba said:Giro Valle d'Aosta is starting Wednesday with a MTT. The parcours is just like every other year incredibly hard. All the best U23 climbers are there, except for the Axeon guys and Bernal.
Edit: No Hindley and no Padun
Something major happened at AXEON.DNP-Old said:Adrien Costa change of schedule, proceeded by DNS in Palio del Recioto, DNS in US Nationals TT, DNS in US Nationals RR, DNS in US Nationals TT U23. Is he even going to ride l'Avenir at this point? Also very odd that Axeon isn't communicating a thing.
Obviously I meant riders who are competing still competing in u23 races.Kokoso said:
