Giro de Trentino stage 3

by stevemarks   April 18, 2013  

Very unsure what to expect today.

Wasn't sure to go for points in the bank, expecting the overall positions to be little changed, or plump for a breakaway, compromised with a bit of both.

Choo Choo!

Cool

Just a word of warning ...
Lander was DNS yesterday and Kohler, McEvoy and Reguigui were all DNF but they're still in the rider list so you might want to avoid picking them.

Today's DNS's Viviani and Coledan.

Today's DNF's so far - Pozzovivo has crashed and quit. That'll upset a few, me included.

It'll expose Bouet a bit as well.

With Cataldo up the road(3'45" now)it takes the onus off of Wiggo and his teammates to organise any chase.....is this a new SKY tactic we see evolving?

I think it's just a case of Sky not taking the race so seriously and allowing their riders to get out there. I expect to see more of the old Sky once we get to the Giro.

Is Wiggins riding Romandie or is this his last pre Giro race?

With Siutsou yesterday and Cataldo today looks like its fine tuning for Sky with the Giro in mind.

I was like a headless chicken last night choosing team, was very undecided. Sit tight with GC guys, or gamble on sprint/breakaway? I ended up gambling, and took 2 penalties. and will probably take penalties again tonight. it's sh*t or get off the pot time for my team. Gulp!

Brought in Sir Wiggley-Wig-Wig, in the hope that he and Signor Nibbles will reprise yesterday's Thelma & Louise finish line routine.

Having a stinker with this competition. Roll on Romandie.

Current situation

Leaders: Tiralongo, Kangert, Santaromita, Sarmiento, Scarponi, Durasek, Sella, Piedra & Locatelli (no idea what's happened to Felline)

Chaser: Cataldo @ 2 min

Peloton @ 3 min

Wiggins was dropped due to a mechanical, no idea if he got back on, I assume he did as he's not being reported as being well behind.

I had 4 names down to bring in, just couldn't decide between.

Konstantin
Pirazzi
Kochcetkov
Locatelli.

and I ended up leaving Pirazzi and Locatelli out and bringing in Txurraka...... Not a good choice.
