That's Michele Pallini, the soigneur, his physio and most trusted man. Love the silence of the entourage, no words, no whispers. And then Antonio comes in the picture.Soigneur: Offers bottle to Vincenzo
Vincenzo: Doesn't take the bottle
Soigneur: Empties bottle on Antonio

The letter. Vino has it already prepared, just in case. And he'll send Moscon over to deliver it personally. He also has a nice train already training for Nibali:I calculated and this means at least 7 W/kg on Civiglio
In all seriousness, it's really good that while this is a 2.1 win, it's also a strong one. Maybe the Giro ain't in the bag just yet, but it gives great hopes for good form in the remaining fall classics.
Now if Vino knows how to deal with a rider who takes 15 months in a year to hit top shape that would be nice.
