Teams & Riders Vincenzo Nibali discussion thread

Tomorrow, Tre Valli Varesine. A reminder from Varese in 2017, one of the three races during the fall Italian classics with a magic Nibali. A few days before he set the record time for San Luca while casually protecting his teammate Visconti who was up the road to win the race. Then here he sprints for the win with Geniez and Pinot while dropping Ulissi.



The rest is history, second Lombardia in the bag.
 
So, how did we like his performance today? Quite active but missed Pog's and Cosnefroy's move - not that it would have been closer to the podium, and he finished just behind anyway.

Big problem for a good Lombardia result is that despite his resurgence, Pog, Rog and Evenepoel among others all seem to be either in spectacular form or on the rise. Even Tibopino showed some legs at Bernocchi.

Realistically I think winning is impossible and I would be pretty happy if he's right up there in the finale or can make something happen on the final climb discounting Bergamo Alta.

Realistically is not a proper way to think in this thread. We are living in a different dimension, the dimension of the bag. And it's quite a big one this time, waiting to be picked up in Bergamo. He will be like Colbrelli in Roubaix, glued to Remco's wheel like it's VdP in a two man raid across Lombardia. Then the final sprint and the glory. It is inevitable that another Italian will win this last monument and it won't be Moscon.
