Stage 17

by Gkam84   May 25, 2011  

Is Visconti stupid or something, just because he's Italian champion doesn't mean he can just go chucking his weight around, Glad he got put to 3rd, but i think he should be fined and chucked out of the Giro for that very dangerous shove, could have caused a crash, IDIOT Angry

Yeh he should have been disqualified, if that was Cav he would have been disqualified. He obvs doesnt sprint much, as people get boxed in all the time normally, but dont go pushing people. What would have happened if lastras had hit ulissi.

I think its only because he carries the Italian nation jersey that he wont get chucked off the tour, but if that had been anyone else, bye bye

Ok, he may not sprint much, but he had plenty of room, just wanted more

He'd said clearly that he'd targeted this stage, long day in the saddle when he did everything right, he was the strongest of the last three and I think just had a rush of blood to his head when Ulissi held his line (as he had every right to do I think).

I think, yes, if it had been Cav, he'd have suffered a harsher punishment, bet he enjoyed watching it back home.

Me, I'm glad I managed to keep 20 points for Visconti, although 20 would have been nicer...

Oops yeah, I meant I'm glad I keep 18 points - but come to think of it, I have Scarponi too, so I end up with 23 points instead of 20, so that's a situation full of win for me (if not Visconti) Smile

Good point Simon! Now I feel better about it. At first I was like, "yay, I picked the right guy!" Then, "what an idiot!"

I agree that he looked the strongest on the day. Maybe Cav can give him some tips for positioning himself for the next sprint so this doesn't happen.

Nah, Renshaw for pointers, he can keep men out at all times and not just with his head
