What if he goes in a break with Mollema everybody forgets about them and they find themselves on Alpe Motta with about 15 minutes on the favourites? Can he win it?He's not winning a stage, let's be real.
What he can do is go in a break and be less useless than Mollema
Nah man, Vincenzo needs to learn Flemish obviouslyI like Quickstep best among his options (if those are indeed the options on the table). It will give him some GC freedom (provided he's still able and willing to go for GC) and may revitalize his one-day racing ability. Plus he gets to mentor the prodigious RE, if they manage to find a common language (Remco will probably have to learn some Italian).
Astana is fine, other than perhaps Fuglsang's presence. Just please no more Trek.
FYI I was exactly 0% serious about the Flemish.The man hasn't managed to learn a word of English after fifteen years in the pro peloton. Flemish strikes me as a language with a steep learning curve, and these days Vincenzo does well only on negative gradients.
A fun linguistic fact: tranquillo admits a synonym, flemmatico from the noun flemma. Flemma is also the Italian word for phlegm. I'm starting to see a connection...
For what it's worth. Keisse talked about Nibali in an interview last year and something he mentioned was that Nibali was the kind of guy 'who would talk to you on day one' and 'straight up ignore you on day 2'.FYI I was exactly 0% serious about the Flemish.
I'm pretty sure Nibbles knows some very basic English he just doesn't do interviews innit.
Obviously he speaks English on some days but on others he just can't remember the words.For what it's worth. Keisse talked about Nibali in an interview last year and something he mentioned was that Nibali was the kind of guy 'who would talk to you on day one' and 'straight up ignore you on day 2'.
So either Keisse speaks Italian or Nibali speaks enough English.
