Heroic applause for Fabio Aru

Let's talk about this new type of cycling, in which there are no big differences, in which the descents, the wind and mechanical problems can make a bigger difference than big mountains.  
In this context, we have to say a big thank you to Fabio Aru, who has kept his/our tricolour flying high; he won, he wore the yellow jersey (and the polka-dot one), he tried to hold onto it without his team which was crippled by two serious accidents. And when his legs started to fail him, he fought, honouring his commitment and his fans, he gave it all he had. He will finish three minutes from the dream, but having given us the idea that he can and will try again. 
Heroic applause!
