Cunego to Skip Giro, Focus on Classics
FINALLY. More riders should do this.
The end of the oxygen vector era will hopefully reduce the amount of talent pulled away from other events by a monomaniacal focus Grand Tours. No one even bothers suggesting that Boonen or Hincapie can win the TdF anymore; even a repeat of Stage 15 in ‘05 would raise some serious questions.
That effective anti-doping measures have helped reduced the overemphasis on three-week GC titles —one of the UCI’s major goals for the ill-fated ProTour—is an outcome hopefully not lost on the sport’s governing body.
