"I've been stopped too long, you can't improvise"
Italy's latest winner of the Classicissima drops out:
He had Covid, then tonsillitis and fever.
With only 5 days in the legs: “I don't feel like doing [Sanremo].
I don't have the base, I don't have the condition,
I don't know how I am yet "
In Italiano here:"I'm a little better, but we have to go step by step.
Between Covid and tonsillitis , I lost almost 20 days.
It was serious, because I contracted the streptococcal bacteria, even ended up in the emergency room.
And I took antibiotics for eight days.
It will be Great just to see him on the road again! Zero expectations except to gain some strength in his legs.The return to the peloton of Vincenzo Nibali at the Milan-Torino
(but not on Saturday at the Milan-Sanremo), :
In Italiano here:
Il campione olimpico ha la febbre da domenica. Vincenzo riparte dalla Milano-Torino dopo Covid, streptococco e antibioticiwww.gazzetta.it
True, tomorrow there's that 5.7 km climb with an average of 7.6 % and it will be done 5 times, uphill finish.I don't know man. He was struggling a bit on the final climb. There were definitely a few riders who looked better + he's outnumbered by both Ineos and UAE.
Let's see how he deals with some longer and steadier climbs tomorrow.
Don't know what he is doing. I thought after the Coppi he can go to Dwars door and De Ronde, maybe Roubaix, amstel, Liege. He had decent legs and Astana sponsors could have done with him at those races.In a week from now Nibali will start Giro di Sicilia, 4 stages, last one Etna (Piano Provenzana). Have no idea what's next after that, should be training at altitude right now but no news whatsoever.
