Mauricio Soler fue agredido en el Giro de Italia


Mauricio Soler fue victima del ataque de corredores del equipo norteamericano Columbia-High Road
11.05.09/2:47 PM

En desarrollo de la segunda etapa del Giro de Italia, cuando faltaban unos diez kilómetros para la llegada, el ciclista Colombiano Mauricio Soler fue agredido de manera brutal por uno de los integrantes del equipo Columbia-High Road, quien le propinó un fuerte golpe en la espalda, lo que desequilibró al pedalista del Barloworld y se presentó entonces una caída colectiva en la que se vieron involucrados por lo menos 30 corredores, entre ellos Mark Cavendish, líder de la prueba e integrante del Columbia.

La colisión se presentó a causa de la presencia del Barloworld en las primeras posiciones del lote y la puja de diversas escuadras por estar allí , especialmente las que tienen "carta ganadora " para los embalajes y el High Road es uno de los principales equipos en ese tema.

A causa de la caída, Soler sufrió el dañó de su bicicleta, perdió tiempo apreciable (1 minuto y 25 segundos) con todos los corredores involucrados en el accidente y para agravar las cosas, en la llegada, el ex-líder Cavendish se fue lanza en ristre contra el colombiano, lo insultó, estuvo a punto de irse a las manos pero prefirió tomar la bicicleta de Soler y estrellarla contra el suelo, en un gesto poco amigable y totalmente antideportivo, observado por compañeros del equipo de Mauricio y una buena cantidad de aficionados, uno de los cuales se puso en contacto con www.revistamundociclistico.com y le relató los hechos que aquí publicamos.

El formidable escalador de nuestro país, sufrió numerosos raspones y golpes en la caída, que le dejan con una rodilla inflamada y la necesidad de una radiografía para determinar su estado, antes de entrar en la cuarta etapa donde la montaña comienza a ser el gran seleccionador de la carrera, aguardándose que Soler pueda accionar con su talento y clase conocidos.

Los unicos pedalistas colombianos que arribaron en el lote del ganador, de los cuatro que compiten en el Giro, fueron José Serpa y Félix Cárdenas mientras Mauricio Ardila y Mauricio Soler entraron retrasados a causa del incidente mencionado.

    Mauricio Soler was assaulted in the Tour of Italy

    Mauricio Soler was a victim of the attack team's runners-American Columbia High Road
    11.05.09 / 2:47 PM

    In developing the second stage of the Tour of Italy, where missing some ten kilometers to the finish, the Colombian rider Mauricio Soler was attacked by a brutal manner of the team High Road-Columbia, who beat him in a strong back, so lopsided, pedals and Barloworld was then a drop in the collective who were involved at least 30 riders, including Mark Cavendish, a leader in test and member of Columbia.

    The collision was due to the presence of Barloworld at the top of the lot and bid on various brackets by being there, especially those who are "winning card" for the packaging and the High Road is one of the leading teams in this issue.

    Because of the fall, Soler suffered damage to his bike, lost significant time (1 minute and 25 seconds) with all the riders involved in the accident and to make matters worse, on arrival, the former leader was launched Cavendish in strings against Colombia, so insulted, he was about to leave but chose to take the hand bike Soler and stars on the floor in a very unfriendly gesture and totally unsportsmanlike, watched by fellow team and a good deal Mauritius amateur, one of whom had contacted him and told www.revistamundociclistico.com the facts here.

    The tremendous scale of our country, suffered numerous scrapes and bruises in the fall, which left him with an inflamed knee and the need for a radiograph to determine their status before entering the fourth phase where the mountain begins to be the great coach the race, waiting for Soler operable with his talent and class known.

    The only pedals Colombians arrived in the lot of the winner of the four competing in the Giro, was José Serpa and while Felix Cardenas and Mauricio Ardila Mauricio Soler came late because of the incident.

    "Of more concern to Hunter than his collarbone, though, was the eating habits of his team mate Chris Froome, who has taken to eating bean sprouts morning, noon and night. He apparently grows them at home and travels with them in his suitcase." :lol:

    I think you'll find it's Shertantly. As in "It will shertantly be majorly difficult"

    or the traditional duffield/harman slap down "I don't tink sho. Itsh shertantly not possible"

    Aw C'mon. It's Sean Kelly we're talking about, not Sean Connery! You might be right about the "shertaintly" though, I'm not very good at doing the Irish accent. :)

    Either way, he knows his stuff. I wish he'd speak a bit louder though as I have to keep turning the volume up and down when he's talking with David Harman, who's not particularly loud..

    I think that's what caused the crash, but I think the original article is referring to what Cav did to get up from the crash and get on with things. I haven't seen it so can't comment.

    Soler certaintly :wink: doesn't have much luck early on in Grand Tours at the moment.

    I can imagine Cav would have been a tad stressed seeing all his rivals trundling off whilst he was still entangled in the mess of fallen bikes -- something like "Get out the f*cking way!" would have been likely at least maybe with a biff for emphasis.

    There's a mini photo story on this on the Rapha website:

    I presume it was Soler who caused the blockage on the road 10km from the finish on Stage 3?

    A couple of Balroworld riders spent a while in with Columbia yesterday at the front of the peloton. Could it be a "sorry, we'll help out"? Or more a case of them fancying one of their riders doing well so helping to keep in touch of the breakaway?
