He has been having some great rides and seriously making a mark for himself this year.
I did notice his victory celebration a few weeks ago and asked if anyone knew what it signified. No answers though.
I found this though, on the Inner Ring a commenter suggested that Pozzivivo was sharing the celebratory antics of Italian footballer Sebastian Giovinco. The Juventus midfielder considers himself short at 5'4, I mean seriously!... So this hand action has something to do with being small of stature, he says it makes him seem taller (www.sebastian-giovinco.com).
Fun Giro right now isn't it. Still seems fairly open. Great to see Hesjedal up there.
Not too sure about the Tour of California though. I guess it's similar to Paris Nice, one decisive climbing stage and one TT, the rest for the sprinters. Sagan was great, would love to see him and Cavendish head to head in the Tour and had we forgotten his chances at the Olympics?
Oh and AG2R, they of the brown shorts and kit. Firstly I have to admit to have been won over by the kit, it certainly stands out and actually looks kind of classy next to the garish advertising or boring black bands of others. If I would be seen dead in team kit it would be this one. Also Nicolas Roche has won me over too, from his famous Dad to his honest book 'Inside the Peleton'. Great to see him and the team fighting for the win and attention. Nicolas was up there in the lead group on the important days but alas his TT let him down again. I think he admits his head just can't get into them.
