Alberto C won the Giro d’Italia but the Tour de France hasn’t gone his way in 2011

His frustration with the Tour this year sort of burst out in some individual aggression on a Tour fan who just got too close to Alberto in his penultimate fight to gain the yellow jersey and top GC standing.

 

These kinds of Tour fans behave clownishly and don’t give much room to the competitors, especially on the HC climbs, like the Alpe d’Huez. More power to Alberto here since he seems to have acted in a normal human, like “Get out of the way you idiot!”

It seems that Mark Cavendish offers the quintissential picture of the sprinter win

with one comment

And he’s back for the 2011 cycling season. Here is a picture of him winning a Giro D’Italia stage. Apparently he retired from the race after this his second sprint win in the Giro this year to rest and get ready for the Tour de France.
