Giro 100 Pt. 1


 The Giro 100 has started three days ago, but it seems to be started just for two teams.
Bora Hansgrohe and Quickstep Floors attacked and deserved they victories, honoring such an important edition of this wonderful race.
Bora Hansgrohe, maybe due to the fact that Sagan wasn't in the race, started attacking with all his riders and were rewarded.
Quickstep Floors choose the windy day to teach cycling to the peloton, doing the one that, so far, could be called the best feat of the Giro 100.
I can understand that the teams with the GC contenders prefer to ride safely in the bunch, but in such a hard race I ask myself when weaker teams think they will have a good occasion to win a stage.
In conclusion, after these three stages is confirmed something that I always love to repeat: in cycling if you attack you may loose, but if you don't attack you can't win.

  1. This three stages was to the sprinters, as you could see, Greipel and Gaviria after a great job of Quick Step Team on the last 10 kilometers on the stage 3. These aren't important news, but I would like remark the faster descent of Bahrain Merida on the stage 2, foccused to protect their captain, Vincenzo Nibali, as a sign to show the good form that's arrives the team.

    I'm sure that on the stage 4 which finishes on Etna mountain, some of the GC contenders like for example Van Garderen, Dumoulin or Yates will try attack and win the stage.

  2. Hi! and thank you for your point of view.
    You are right, Nibali is really focused on this Giro, it is the main goal of his season.
    I've just seen your message and it is too easy comment once stage 4 has gone. :D
    I see the point of your observations but the goal of my article was to say that in such a hard Giro, smaller teams should try to win stages since the beginning because the last 2 week will be really hard.
