|Tiralongo said that stage 7 of the Giro d'Italia|
was good for him and a week later he won it!
Before the Giro start in Denmark I talked with Tiralongo (read here) and right before he took off with Astana for the team presentation he told me:
“There are many stages in this Giro that I like. Even the one in L’Aquila suits me well I think”.
And indeed it did. While everybody was expecting team leader Roman Kreuziger to participate in the sprint it was Paolo Tiralongo who went with Michele Scarponi and even managed to beat the fast Italian on the final meters.
One week after picking out this specific stage, Paolo Tiralongo actually won it - Bravo!
NB - Tiralongo actually also named tomorrow's stage to Lago Laceno as a good one for him...2 out of 2?
