It is said that one never knows what does a lady really want and Vincenzo Nibali would surely agree to it. The stage two Tour de France winner needed much more than a single-day win to earn a kiss from one of the podium beauties who comically snubbed him down while the rider approached her for a peck on cheek.
For the second consecutive year Howard Grotts (Specialised) took pride in taking the title at Missoula pro XT, beating the national champion Stephen Ettinger (BMC) and his team mate Todd Wells at the last hour, at the final lap of the competition only to emerge at the top.
It was at the elite man’s race that the Colorado’s Howard Grotts had his strong grip in defending his title and gleefully succeeded in doing so.
Howard felt great and said that the crowd there was always good and that course suited him perfectly. He was glad having making it happen again.
