Berne to Finhaut-Emosson (Switzerland) :: 184.5km

    Movistar sponsored by Diadora, but Quintana wears Sidi. Katusha sponsored by Sidi, but Zakarin wears Shimano. Who completes the shoe cover triangle?

    • Sometimes there are exceptions for shoe sponsors in contracts as they’re such an individual item. You’ll often see unmarked shoes or shoe covers due to sponsorship conflicts. Same with saddles.

        I had heard this, but was really just looking for a Shimano sponsored rider that wears Diadora to complete the puzzle!

      Quintana wears Diadora – note 3rd photo in this series, with pensive Quintana sitting with his good friend, his bike.

        Look closer, dear friend. It is but an illusion (Diadora shoe covers on Sidi shoes).

          Good point…sneaky bugger.

    That’s Winner Anacona giving nothing away, not Nairo!

      Yes, that’s true.

      Fair point. But it’s also fair to assume that at the moment this pic was taken Quintana’s face was also ‘giving nothing away’. In the dictionary under the word ‘impassive’ it says ‘adjective: see Quintana, Nairo’

    Thats not Nairo…

    Nairo Quintana’s expression gives nothing away. Photo: Gruber images
