#TOURDEFRANCE: the reasons why Aru could win…

Fabio Aru can win this Tour de France? At the moment he and his entourage have said that they only think about the stage of tomorrow with no distraction. Humility is preached but the awareness of being close to something big is strong. Lets analyze from the unknown. One, underestimated to this point, is called Romain Bardet. The French, winner today, is riding very well since the start of the Tour and is supported by a powerful team (AG2R). Apparently fragile, Bardet is actually really strong and he is already on the podium in Paris 2 years ago. The second is obviously Chris Froome who has experience and 22km of the last […]

Quickstep’s house problem: Gaviria or Kittel?

Quickstep’s house problem: Gaviria or Kittel?

Marcel Kittel, shirt number 4. Ivan Drago is actually in the saga of the 4th film dedicated to Rocky Balboa, Silvester Stallone‘s film. Blond and physically like a boxer, the German of QuickStep says he is in a perfect physical condition and, dressed in his green jersey he will arrive in Paris with this primate. All right till now. It would be good if Kittel wasn’t at the center of an intense negotiations. Some evaluations must be made in Quick Step’s home that now has in its team 2 of the world’s fastest riders. Only a month ago, it seemed that the Belgian team, a really strong team, had already chosen has main character Ferdinando Gaviria, a really fast Colombian who also won […]

DILEMMA QUICKSTEP: KITTEL O GAVIRIA…?

DILEMMA QUICKSTEP: KITTEL O GAVIRIA…?

Marcel Kittel numero 4. Ivan Drago in effetti compare nella saga del 4° film dedicato a Rocky Balboa, film di Silvester Stallone. Biondo e fisicato come un pugile, il tedesco della QuickStep dice di essere nella forma della vita e, fasciato dalla sua maglia verde, arriverà a Parigi con il simbolo del primato a punti.   Tutto bene, anzi benissimo quindi. Benissimo se non fosse che ora Kittel è, fortuna sua, al centro di un’intensa trattativa di mercato. Alcune valutazioni da fare sono d’obbligo in casa Quick Step che ora si ritrova con 2 dei più forti velocisti al mondo sotto contratto.   Solo un mese fa sembrava che il […]

CONTADOR, A CRISIS THAT COMES FROM THE PAST.

CONTADOR, A CRISIS THAT COMES FROM THE PAST.

Tomorrow stage will starts from Perigueux and goes to Bergerac, famous for Cirano. All the big ones are ready to start apart the poor Richie Porte who is in the hospital.

CONTADOR, UNA CRISI CHE VIENE DA LONTANO.

CONTADOR, UNA CRISI CHE VIENE DA LONTANO.

Si riparte da Perigueux e si va a Bergerac, famosa per Cirano. Tutti i big sono in rampa di lancio a parte il povero Richie Porte che è in ospedale. Qui, in questo Tour, il ciclista che manca all’appello è Alberto Contador. Lo spagnolo di Pinto in realtà è in gara, attardato di 5’:15” al 12esimo posto. Il vero sconfitto di questa edizione 2017. Ci si potrebbe chiedere se si tratti di un’annata sfortunata o di una fine di carriera. Il campione ha sempre dichiarato che i valori espressi in allenamento erano buoni e che la gamba era quella dei giorni giusti. Segno che a volte anche i watt parlano […]

#TOURDEFRANCE: QUESTIONE DI LINGUA

#TOURDEFRANCE: QUESTIONE DI LINGUA

Lilian Calmejane, esperto in linguacce come il suo capitano Thomas Voeckler, oggi ha veramente dato spettacolo con una frazione pazza e ricca di sorprese. Oltre alla bravura mostrata, il francesino 25 enne debuttante al Tour ha saputo catalizzare su di sé l’attenzione, prima per la bravura mostrata in gara e poi per una serie di episodi che non capita spesso di vedere in un vincitore. Il primo colpo di scena ai meno 5 dall’arrivo. Crampi. Solitamente chi incappa in questo tipo di problemi, in una tappa del genere è spacciato. Invece la promessa transalpina ha saputo sorprendere anche sé stesso. Sperava di poter far bene alla Gran Boucle, ma mai […]
