Snow: the team man that is exhibited in the Giro

The Navarre, one of the props of Mitchelton, has more room for maneuver after Simon Yates moved away in the general.

Mikel Nieve (Leitza, 35 years old) finished second at Lake Serrù. The Navarrese got into the day's getaway and only surpassed him a superlative Ilnur Zakarin. Simon Yates, the leader of the Mitchelton, is far from the fight for the general and Snow has more room for maneuver. Yesterday he slipped back into the leak and, without options at Mortirolo, was left with the Briton. Although it is one of the best gregarious people in the world, it diminishes importance: "I know well what my role is and what is expected of me: work for Simon. There is still a lot of mountain ahead. And even though Yates has not performed as he wished, we try to turn around a difficult situation ".

In the palmares of Snow, three spectacular victories shine in the Giro d'Italia, in Val di Fassa ( 2011), Cividale del Friuli (2016) and Cervinia (2018), in addition to the Azzurri jersey as king of the climbers of 2016: "It seems that here I have achieved my most beautiful triumphs, but I have never considered myself a winner, but a team man. " That's why it does not bother him to work for the corresponding boss (Anton and Samuel, from his time in the Euskaltel, Froome, in the Sky, or the Yates and Chaves, in the Mitchelton): "It's okay, I do not have the features necessary to aspire to a great return. I do not mind sacrificing myself. "
