    Cuenego and the Giro

    he rode the whole thing with mononucleosis....

    he's had it since about two weeks before the Giro's start.

    Probably will miss the TdF...

    Cyclingnews, June 14 (but it has been around for a while):

    Damiano Cunego's presence at the Tour de France is looking increasingly unlikely after he was diagnosed as getting mononucleosis in the second half of April. His team director and mentor Giuseppe Martinelli was quoted in La Gazzetta dello Sport as saying, "In one way, this news reassures me, because we have found an explanation for the failure of Damiano in the Giro, but on the other hand, we didn't need that."

    I see the sarcasm note, but he did help the old guy for a while, didn't he?

    yah, he didn't drop him

    That said, having had Mononucleosis I'm surprized he could even pedal the
    bike, it took that much outta me.
