Tour du Haut-Var Sum Up

Embedded image permalinkDo you remember when at TDU they picked Arthur Vichot random as a rider to support? well, the kid grew up and just won a good race. Do you remember when Roman Kreuziger looked a serious TdF contender? well... he lost a little his way. Do you remember Tom Slagter? yes, sure: you didn't have the time to forget him. Do you remember when Thor Hushovd was looking like Superman intoxicated by Cryptonite? well, he got his superpowers back. Do you remember when good guys like Nicolas Roche and Maximw Monfort were strugling to be something more than good? they still are. And finally: do you remember Daniel Oss? don't forget him in the next months because I think his time is coming.


Do you remember Laurent Didier? OMG I have just forgotten him... Because instead I must remind that he brought home the King of Mountains jersey. Bravo! He's demonstrating to be more than a good helper.
PS
Do you remember Andy Schleck? :) He's well training in Mallorca and Luca Guercilena told me yesterday he's sure he'll be back to all his potential. Sometimes things go wrong and not everybody react in the same way. And the way back can't be short nor easy when you don't take a shortcut.
