Pippo Pozzato has certainly fallen down the totem pole hasn't he? Ten years ago he won Milan San Remo and a Tour stage the previous season and was then a super helper for Boonen in the northern classics. His long talked about potential finally seemed to be coming to fruition.

Aside from an Italian championship after which his season in the Italian tricolor was more noted for the number of design variations for the jersey and the arguments with the Italian federation because of them, what has he achieved?

Such a wasted talent, imo.

Cavendish and DiData ready @ Manchester: https://twitter.com/cvndsh/status/684399040679776257

i would think that if the previous all-dark (apparently) training kits are all we have seen, a Cavendish media event would be the ideal opportunity to show off the Racing kit.

To be fair to Pippo, he did finished 2nd at Flanders behind a super Boonen in 2012 with essentially the same team he's with in 2016. However, in the meantime, said team has had a sh!t ton of positives ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southeast_Pro_Cycling ) while Pippo has gone on to win basically nothing (Poulay one year I think) since moving to Lampre (who's been under massive pressure since 2011 b/c of Mantova).....so he's gonna rule this year! :podium: ;)

edit- and he only won San Remo b/c he had Boonen behind for the sprint imho

Got busted trying to buy drugs as a junior, quietly left off. Been mentioned in a handful of doping scandals, got popped working with Ferrari the last year he was actually good, etc. He's top UCI ranked party dawg, and that's it really. Love him for what he is not what could have been.

I was also under the impression that DMT makes /made the Nike cycling shoes. Therefor I bought a pair of DMT Libra's, since I really miss my Nikes. Unfortunately the DMT's had a completely different fit than anything I ever tried from Nike. They didn't work for me at all.

Pippo must have a lucky star somewhere. I dont now how he can still matter in pro cycling.
