Latest Euro race musings

Cyclingnews reported an interesting result from stage 3 of the 6th Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale Coppi-Bartali in Italy. Cunego grabbed the 165km stage and leads overall. What I found interesting was Mario Aerts (Bel) Davitamon-Lotto in 6th place on that stage, with Michael Rogers (Aus) T-Mobile Team not far back in 9th, all with Cunego. Cunego has a bit of a sprint for such a good stage race climber. Cadel Evans (Aus) Davitamon-Lotto was 23rd and Gene Bates (Aus) Team L.P.R. 25th. The top 11 places are within a minute of Cunego, including Aerts, Rogers and Evans.

So we have some good form on display to match what we have seen with Boonen, Bettini and Pettachi. Let's not ignore Vino either. Hmmmm. April, May, June and then Le Tour.
