Stage 7 Frosinone – Foligno 211km
BREAKING NEWS: A change in the Maglia Nera!
Our sources report that Ramon Carretero took a DNF today. Not sure what happened, but my guess would be that dude is exhausted.
Cameron Meyer of Australia and Orice-GreenEdge takes over the Maglia Nera at +1:03:04 after today’s stage.
STATS (according to wikipedia): 26 years of age, 5’11” 152lbs.
PALMARES (also according to wikipedia): Mulitple World Champ on the track for Individual pursuit, Madison, Team pursuit, and so on. Multiple National TT champion. On the road, he’s won the overall Tour Down Under in 2011, 10th overall at Tirreno-Adriatico in 2012, National Criterium champ in 2013 along with taking the mountains classification at Circuit de la Sarthe, 5th overall at Tour of California and Tour of Turkey, plus 10th overall at Tour de Suisse. He’s taken a couple solo TT stages and several TTTs with Orica-GreenEdge.
GC at a Grand Tour may not be Cameron’s thing, but the dude clearly has the chops to ride at excessively high rates of speed!
Our condolences to Ramon and a hearty welcome to Cameron!
