    Agile gears in Lombardia

    Damiano Cunego said this after winning today:


    "I started my sprint in a very agile gear," Cunego recalled.


    What's that? Is that just a weird translation, or something I've missed?

    He means he started with a good jump. Witness in your next race how guys trying to sprint in their 11/12T from 29mph get beaten by juniors in their 15s.

    I think "agile" is the perfect translation.
    Starting from a gear you can get on top of quickly, yet still power away with force.
    Snuffle said it well above too.
