Subject: Cunego and the Vuelta

Don't know if this has been posted or mentioned previously, but I found it to be rather disappointing:

"Giro d'Italia sensation Damiano Cunego (Saeco) will line up for his second grand tour of the season on Saturday when the Vuelta a España kicks off in León, Spain. The young Cunego expects to play a protagonist's role in the Vuelta, but makes no secret that an anticipated early exit is planned as he prepares for the World Championships in Verona, Italy. Cunego won the Junior World's in Verona in 1999 and is eager to go for another rainbow jersey in his home region.

"I'm probably only going to ride the first two weeks of the Vuelta," Cunego explained. "It's a prestigious and important race but my big objective for the end of the season is the World Championships in Verona close to my home in Italy. A rider rarely gets a chance to race for a world title on home roads and it's even on the same course where I won the junior world title in 1999. That's too big of an opportunity to miss and so I have to do everything I can to be at my best for then."
