Fernando Gaviria

Makes History For Colombia On The Bike

May 19, 2017

The 22-year-old, Fernando Gaviria, continued his sensational form at the Giro d'Italia on Friday, May 19, winning his second stage in succession and fourth in all as Tom Dumoulin comfortably retained his healthy general classification lead.

 

Colombian Fernando Gaviria won a dramatic, wind-affected third stage of the Giro d’Italia on Sunday to assume the race leader’s pink jersey ahead of Monday’s first rest day.

 

He is the first rider to win three stages on his Grand Tour debut since Uwe Raab in 1990, but he brushed off claims he is the best sprinter in the peloton.

 

A flat 13th-stage route from Reggio Emilia to Tortona was always likely to conclude with a bunch sprint and Gaviria again proved the class of the field.

 

There was no change at the top of the overall standings with Sunweb’s Tom Dumoulin preserving his 2min 23sec lead over Movistar’s Nairo Quintana, with Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) in third. But Thomas, whose overall chances were effectively wiped out by a major crash on Sunday, lost another 48sec on the leaders and now lies in 15th place, six minutes and 46sec back.

Borussia Dortmund

Soccer Team Bus Hit By Explosion

April 11, 2017

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed their team bus has been involved in an explosion ahead of their Champions League quarter-final against Monaco with defender Marc Bartra reported to have been taken to hospital.

 

Reports in Germany named the injured person as Spain international Bartra, with the 26-year-old having been taken to a local hospital. According to Bild, an explosive was deposited on the street in front of the bus although police have yet to give any more details.

 

The bomb went off as the bus passed a junction at Schirrmannweg and Wittbraucker Strasse, which is near the L'Arrivée hotel and spa.

 

It will be announced at 20:30 local time (18:30 GMT) whether the match against Monaco will go ahead as planned.

James Rodriguez Calls Zinedine Zidane

A ‘Motherf*****r’

April 07, 2017

The Colombia international started only his eighth La Liga game of the season but was brought off after 72 minutes. And as he was walking off the pitch, television cameras picked up the 25-year-old’s angry comments towards the Madrid boss.

 

According to Deportes Cuatro, Rodriguez said as he was walking off the pitch: ‘Motherf****r! You never give me a full game!’

Rodriguez then punched the dugout wall in frustration before sitting down on the bench.

 

 

After the match, Zidane admitted he understood Rodriguez’s frustrations but insists the decision to substitute him is nothing personal against the midfielder. ‘I have not spoken with him, it is normal that a player wants to play the full 90 minutes,’ he said.
