How long was his solo on the previous day? I think he mostly paid for that having not planned to do that GiroDid a huge turn on Montevergine too I think.
Also clearly did 90% of the work in the TTT they won.
Actually I'm pretty sure Nibali did Zoncolan faster in 2007 than 2010?
That's still a random crap day that lost him a GT lol
About 40-45 kms, I think. He took a gap on the Grappa descent almost immediately.How long was his solo on the previous day? I think he mostly paid for that having not planned to do that Giro
He also finished 3rd on Verbier. Had he managed to stay with Contador and the Schelcks on stage 17 he would have been on the podium, lol.The Nibali bits that hyped me in 2009 was him giving Lance *** cause he wasn't taking turns on stage 17 and tryharding to stay with Schleck and Contador on Ventoux. Little did Andy know he was the imposter
That's the big unknown. Will he let go or still fight? Don't like the idea of riding for Cico, he needs a new contract and doing gregario duties doesn't help much. He looked pissed after today's stage, usually he needs to get angry at something during the race to get going. Hopefully he'll find an extra motivation to forget the pain and hang on tomorrow.Tomorrow I'm afraid he's going to lose all the time. But oh well, there are worse fates than riding for Ciccone. He's probably better off trying to recover from wrist pain as much as possible and go for a stage in the Alps.
Not clearly mentioned so I'd guessed as a rider but it was only briefly mentioned in the LR podcast and they said it was only vague rumors on twitter.As a DS?
Contador, Vino, Nibali, Fugslang, Kreuziger, and bring back Klöden representing AstanaNot clearly mentioned so I'd guessed as a rider but it was only briefly mentioned in the LR podcast and they said it was only vague rumors on twitter.
I believe he was just briefly seen talking to Contador but the actual conversation was that they both wanted to relive the glorydays with Astana
As a physics student in his eighth semester, I feel obliged to say that cool people don't bother to give proofs to any statement. That's why I can confidently say that after today, the Giro is in the bag.You just triggered the math student in his sixth semester who is now obliged to tell you that cool people just draw a little square instead of writing that
