Just in: Antón animates Lombardia finale

Igor Antón put up a battling performance in today's Giro di Lombardia (or Il Lombardia I guess) to cap off what's been a remarkable season for the team. Coming into the last 30 kilometres the team had Antón, Samu and Txurruka in the front group and looked good for a tilt at the win. But once the Vergano climb commenced Samu went out the back and Antón wasn't quite able to stay with the top guys. Oliver Zaugg hung on to claim one of the most surprising wins in cycling the last few years, while Antón came in with the fourth group, placing somewhere around 15th. Full results and reactions to come later this evening.

When Txurruka was pulling his heart out for him I was hoping for something more, but he faded quite quickly when things started to go uphill.

Well, his form wasn't the most brilliant to start with and I don't think Beijing was any good for the teams health either.

I think its time for him to take a big rest and come back in 2012 with his 2010 form... Hopefully he can get back at that level again.
