Curiosity

Nibali, the dramatic come back and the memorable encore!

“Leave me alone, it’s humiliating”. Vincenzo Nibali is dazed. The Stage 16 Bressanone – Andalo should have been the stage of resurrection from a race started wrong, instead it turned into tragedy. The Dutch Kruijswijk has the Pink Jersey and Nibali reached a delay of 4’43”.

Everything seems to say that Nibali won’t race in direction of Cassano d’Adda

Three days later, on the Alps, Nibali takes off, wins and burst into tears. Even the Dutch cries, but for the pain of the incredible fall and his dream crushes against a wall of snow.

Chaves gains the Pink Jersey but only for 24 hours- At Sant’Anna di Vinaudio a legendary Shark overturns the history of the pink race. The hug of Jairo and Carolina, the parents of the Colombian, to the winner is beautiful and touching event and symbol  of a great sportsmanship.
