Coppy&Bartaly!


I'd written it wrong - and corrected - all the race long but after today I think it can stay like that. Team Sky sealed their perfect week by a perfect itt by Dario Catado and with the only ecception of Elia Viviani - who still speaks a good English - all the stage winners ride for the British Team, as well as the GC final winner and the points classification winner. 
Best climber and best youth are Italian and that's good in an Italian race (at least!). Today winner Dario Cataldo is Italian too, he had openly targeted this tt and is obviously satisfied:
147. Settimana Coppi e Bartali - Stage 4: Pavullo - Castello di Montecuccolo ITT [30/03/2014] Dario Cataldo“Everyone has done a really good job this week and it has been a strong team effort. From a personal point of view I was really happy to do a good ride and to move up to second in GC. I thought it might be possible to take second ahead of the stage but with such a short time trial it could be difficult. There was not that much opportunity to take time. It was not a completely flat time trial where a climber could lose a lot of time. I gave it my best and it turned out okay! We won a lot this week but I think the nicest thing about our performance was that we always chose the right tactics. We stuck to what we talked about each morning and we worked together in the right way. That is not easy to do day after day.”
