Where Roma Maxima was won: Domenico Pozzovivo attacked up the steep, startlingly narrow, cobbled climb to Campi di Annibale. Valverde caught the little Italian over the top, and from there, Valverde put on an impressive display of power to hold off the hard chasing field behind. @ashleygruber was right there to witness the fitness.
The moment @michalkwiatek smashed @petosagan.
Strade Bianche is tomorrow. Can’t wait! Yay for races on amazing dirt roads in beautiful places.
I love it when you’re climbing where you probably shouldn’t be at this time of year - there is snow everywhere, but the almost springtime sun is shining. You’re way warmer than you should be, gloves are gone, jersey unzipped, sweat drips. I love that.
After a bunch of work and even more bad weather over the last few days, we had the chance to sneak outside for a little fun with @carlogironi today. The Colma di Sormano from Nesso is a treat. I would take it any day over its famous neighbor - the Ghisallo.
Of all the things I want to do more of, mountain biking is tops on my list.
Hoping for some more of this soon - plus some Tom Boonen in the mix.
My favorite road (that is actually a road). It’s on Monte Grappa, which is my favorite mountain to ride, so that works out well.
Counting down the days until the welcome sight of the Scheldepeloton in Flanders.
