Vincenzo Nibali discussion thread

He was one Mortiyolo descent attack from winning the damn Giro, and now he's getting better rain breaks?
He tends to crash on wet descents (Rio, Angliru stage, Giro 2013, Firenze) so I think Mortirolo was a wise decision. Looking back I think he lost the Giro on Lago Serru, a combination of finding himself in the wrong place with the wrong companion on a not-so-good day.
 
Also from Gazzetta, Slongo says they'll work on increasing workloads, greater care of explosiveness and maximum strength that, physiologically, are lost a little bit. Work in the gym will also increase throughout the year.



Nibali didn't use disc brakes on his road bike not because he didn't like them, but because of weight issues. In this sense Trek found high performance solutions that convinced him.

"With the way I ride my bike maybe it becomes a bit more 'dangerous' - smiles Nibali - in the sense that the disc brake takes you even more to the limit. But, especially in the wet, it can help you a lot. "
I think that's a pretty bike.

Both Lago Serru and Courmayeur were tactically bad. And before the Carapazbestgetoveritcrew gets onto this, yeah he was the best those 2 days, but throwing away 50s to Majka who got rofldropped every other mountain stage means it was incredibly tactical. Courmayeur was just adding insult to injury and I don't know what Nibali was doing there.

Nibali was clearly on his worst day on Lago Serru, but he severely overestimated Roglic, and tbh the first signs of that were already there on the stage where Dumoulin crashed and Nibali lost additional time due to Pucchio.
