Mario Manzoni says
We’ll make a decision on who we select as we get close to the race. Obviously form is a major consideration, but with young riders there’s much more to it than that. We have a very fast neo-pro named Nicolas Marini, but he’s only 21. Of course he wants to ride, but you have to be careful with them at that age.
Moment in time
Heading into the penultimate stage of the 1985 Giro, a nailed-on sprint to Genoa, all was to play for. Bernard Hinault, twice a Giro winner, wore pink. He led Francesco Moser by 1:15 but with a 48km time trial to come, he was far from home and hosed. Moreover, if Moser could pick up some time bonuses by the seaside, he’d be within striking distance of repeating the previous year’s contentious win.
