So, Vincenzo's nickname is a bit vulgar, Julien is Giuliano and Ciccone rooms with Antonio.Ciccone with his best Scarponi impression here:
Yeah, that simply looks annoying, nothing else really.Ciccone with his best Scarponi impression here:
Could be but this is the sort of stage where anyone could win or lose really.Am I the only one to think that today could be a good stage for Vincenzo? Lots of climbing, lots of descending, long(er) stage, no steep walls, room for an ambush.
As I wrote in the stage thread, I feel this is an underrated stage. Tomorrow is an easy day, I don't see why someone should not try something
. Of course there is the final flat, but how many domestiques will still be there if you ride it hard?
Team was freaking nonexistent. I thought Trek was supposed to have one of the strongest teams in the race after Astana's defects...Team is nowhere to be seen and not getting any better. Doesn't bode well for week 3.
No need to use the team yet. A masterful saving of strength ready to unleash the apocalypse on SundayTeam was freaking nonexistent. I thought Trek was supposed to have one of the strongest teams in the race after Astana's defects...
Strangely enough for a shark, Vincenzo has shown today he doesn't really enjoy being wet!
I'm not really sure they're good enough to even get in the break.Mosca has been really good in the last few days but he is more of a punchy climber. Same for Conci. Antonio has been better than I expected prior to the race.
Ciccone is slowly getting better but Brambilla is fading. One of both needs to step up in the 3rd week.
As Rick said: In a group of 50-60 riders they have the complete team left. In a group of 30 riders they might have one helper left. In a group of 20 riders Nibali is isolated.
Trek should follow NTTs and Astanas example and send riders up the road.
