Nibali 2nd after an extraordinary race
Como, October 13th – “I’m happy but I wanted to win – commented Vincenzo Nibali after the finish line in Como – it was a shame to have found Pinot with an incredible condition. On the last climb, I felt very tired but I wanted the podium; I found the last energy and I attacked again. It went right”.
”Among the Monuments, Il Lombardia it’s my favorite race. After the crash at the Tour, today’s second place represents my sporting redemption. I wanted to do a great race but the legs were not super and so I ran mostly with my head. Now a little rest and then I will start working for a wonderful next season”.
Ion Izagirre: “It was my last race with the TBM’s jersey and I closed with a good 6th place. We all made a great team performance. After the Vuelta, I was thinking about going down, but I recovered for the World Championship and even today I was fine”.
Domenico Pozzovivo: “It is a race that I have always liked and in which I often arrive with the first ones. When Vincent attacked we protected him from behind and then he made a “great number”. I am happy with my season in which I have been very continuous, the victory has been missing but I have achieved good results “.
SD Alberto Volpi: “A super day, even if we did not win. Vincenzo has shown to be a great champion even if he was not 100%. Also his teammates made a great job all day long and I think to have three riders in the Top Ten show it fully “.
