"It is not fair to take away the place that another companion deserves".Interview in Gazzetta today quoted by Eurosport and others. He is not in top form and it's not fair to take others place.
But it wasn't good either. I'm sure he is following a training program to reach Lombardia in optimal condition, Harrogate wasn't on the list. Apparently Bernal is also targeting GdL and just did the same.This surprises me, no worlds... i thought Canada wasn’t that bad.
I'm sure he follows a specific preparation for Lombardia, not riding the Vuelta makes it even more difficult. WCRR was never intended. Couldn't find the next races he'll start but most likely two before GdL, Giro dell'Emilia on 5.10 and Tre Valli Varesine on 08.10. He will certainly be good in Lombardia. Good enough to win? We'll see.Okey, I hope he will be better in Lombardia... It's only 2 weeks later. But maybe it's just like your saying
Fuglsang?The question "good enought to win?" brings me to
"Who is gonna beat him?"
Only ones I see capable of beating a good Nibali are Valverde and Pogacar. All the others either can't or have major major reasons to be shite.
And it's probably very good Nibali doesn't ride the Worlds. He's done the Giro/Tour double, any semblance of a peak he still has left won't hold for long.
