When France was pushing in the penultimate lap and reducing the bunch to 50 or so.. I was think this is already better than Innsbruck ;)

Top end not quite there admittedly, but Etna is a very different effort, he should be fine. Most muro stages are a bit later into the race, after today I'm hopeful that he'll be able to follow Yates and Fuglsang there.
 
He looks good for Il Giro. I hope he wins it. I can't believe how he gets underrated by many before the GTs in last couple of years. The bookies have him 5th favourite behind Kruijswijk and Fuglsang...wtf?! Hasn't he done enough in the past that shows he is always the favourite (or top 2-3 at least) in the Giro. Well he certainly isn't underrated on this forum at least lol

Betting Nibali and laying Kruijswijk is literally free money.
 
Jut after the race:

"Already in the previous days I knew that the last climb (Gallisterna, ed.) was not suitable for me. So I tried on the penultimate ascent and we left in four: there were Landa, Uran, and van Aert who didn't collaborate. Then everything got mixed up and the final slopes rewarded more explosive riders.

As far as I was concerned, it was the first time I felt good. Up until ten days ago everything was a question mark. With the teammates we were planning to do an attack race, but from the beginning the pace was high. It was difficult to try it from a distance, as Pogacar did".
