Avanti Pozzovivo!

My tip to watch out for climber Domenico Pozzovivo last month was justified by his sizzling performance in the eigth statge of the Giro d'Italia this week. And this was a decisive victory on only a second category climb. Wait until he gets into the steep stuff this weekend and the Dolomites a few days later. There's a good chance he'll wipe out the other GC contenders. But I am still keeping my fingers crossed that he's clean. After all, lots of us were fooled by Pantani, Richard Virenque, Bjarne Riis, Floyd Landis, Michael Rasmussen, Alberto Contador et al.
