Carapaz has the Giro, Landa takes the podium and Bilbao repeats

The last day of the mountain served Movistar to distance Roglic and put Landa on the podium. Bilbao won the favorites. López, shot by an amateur.

There are two versions of Mikel Landa: unchained and chained. Unchained, it seems that the world is going to eat, that there is no better climber in the peloton than he does. Attack, cut time lost in the time trials or other mishaps and offer spectacle in the mountains. Pero chained is the exercise of gregarious for another cyclist of his team. He had been appointed captain ahead, either yielded more or read and took with greater accuracy the circumstances.

Unfortunately for him, both versions coincide in the races in the that stands out for its moment of form. Le occurred in the Giro of 2015 and in the Tour of 2017. In the Giro of 2019 they condemned the two horrible times of the first week and the irruption of Richard Carapaz. The Ecuadorian fiercely grasped the opportunity presented to him in Courmayeu11111r, and from there he extended his differences with respect to Vincenzo Nibali and Primoz Roglic. Impeccable and irreproachable, since he had the permission of Movistar. Landa started as leader and Carapaz, as the second trick. The tables changed. Both accepted with honesty the old and the new roles. Result: Carapaz will conquer this Sunday his first Tour and Landa will fight for the drawer in the final time trial. Third, has 23 seconds ahead of Roglic.

The most beneficial situation for Movistar appeared in the Manghen. Superman Lopez dynamited the dolomitic tappone 118 kilometers from the finish. His attack undid the weakness of Nibali and Roglic. However, during the descent and the plain path of the Rolle, the group was reunited and reorganized with the runners of the breakaway and the squires disconnected. While Bilbao, Snow, Kangert, Dunbar, Gehereigzabher, Ciccone, Madouas and Capecchi went on the hunt for victory, Landa, Pedrero, Amador and Carretero were squeezed to the service of Carapaz.

But the train of the adventures did not pass by. In Croce d'Aune he tried Superman and Landa counterattacked. The Alava started with power ... and Roglic rudely towed his compatriots. That action cost him ten seconds of penalty . Nibali and Carapaz caught Landa on the descent, and the three together opened a gap on Mount Avena against the Slovenian, common enemy in the clock of Verona. Before they linked with the escapees there was a new regrettable image: another fan of Eslovenia threw Superman and the Colombian responded with two punches fruit of the heater.

El rose, knowing that he had sentenced the general, sacrificed for his partner (and himself) . However, Pello Bilbao took the wheel Landa and passed him in the last meters. Second target for the Biscayan in this round, after the one achieved in L'Aquila. Despite his joy for Carapaz and his excellent performance (if the time trials are excluded), Landa, second in the finish, remains again with the feeling of unfinished work. The 23 seconds against Roglic in 17 kilometers seem insufficient.
