Looking back one can say he was like a perfect lieutenant for Ciccone all day delivering him on the fresh tarmac in the last part of the race except when the time came for the "captain" he sank with the ship.Nibali riding for Ciccone is not something I ascribed to
Better ride fro himself...Ciccone is not a GT winner in my book
Nibali will finish higher than him
He can't do it if the legs are not listening. Today is the first sign that something good is happening.This is already a lot more than what he showed last year in the Giro.
Hopefully more attacks to come. Don't really care if it's uphill or downhill, or even if it works. Just want him to animate the race and be himself again.
In all fairness, he has also taken his own scalp a couple of times - 2016 Olympics and 2017 Vuelta.So far that i know, he has taken the scalps of Kruijswijk, Evenepoel and Moscon on the descents
