Criterium International tomorrow (and more)




In his last interview with RTL Andy said he slept in his bed six days since the begining of the year. Just after it he left home again to go training and racing in Corsica: Criterium International and - moreover? - grand depart of the next Tour de France. The team took the opportunity to test the route and it looks great: very hard, really exciting, splendid because of the landscape.  
Tomorrow and for two day it will be about to finish, to improve, to feel good for Andy. For his team a victory should be nice: it's a tradition! Jens Voigt is in the roster so... be ready to jump again on the sofa and - you lucky! - on the road. 
I'll stay at home this time. I seriously pondered the idea to go to the Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco but finally decided I can't. Liège will be my next race probably. That's also a tradition and Andy's first real goal.
My twitter's followers know I linked two good articles about Andy in the last days: this one is in Italian, by a brave Italian journalist and friend who started a new project called Cycle  http://www.cyclemagazine.it/cycle/2013/03/andy-era-unaquila-andy-non-riesce-piu-a-volare/
... the other is by Peloton

The are both balanced and put things in a right perspective. I'm happy to see many people talking in favour of Andy and expressiong concern for him but maybe they exagerate a little... I mean... #saveAndy is quite extreme O.O He just needs to be let in peace. He wasn't happy when he retired in Tirreno, that's obvious, and he was also exhausted as he said, but he isn't desperate, rassure yourself! he's determined instead and focused on his comingback. He can even sounds 'naive' when he says his main goal is the Tour when you see he barely finished a race, but I can assure you he knows what he's doing and so do Luca Guercilena and his team.
Allez Andy and good luck :)
