Super Mario not feeling so super for Tour
Cipollini, who dropped out of the Giro after a Stage 7 fall, said "My aim is to win at least one stage. The green jersey is not an objective. I’ll take it one day at a time,” and as much as admitted he doesn't plan to ride into Paris with the peloton, but will exit when the roads turn steep.
“This is not an ideal situation. I had an almost three-week-long break after the Giro and I clearly lack race days. I’ll be going to the Tour not knowing how my form is. I hope there’ll be a couple of situations where it all falls into place, but hope is the best I can do.”
Cipollini is 37 and clearly nearing the end of his career, but where will we turn for drama when he's gone?
