..when Damiano Cunego completed his sixth Giro-victory?
Remember when...

Category: ManGame (Giro d'Italia 2014, ProTour)

Winning the Giro five times from 2007 to 2011, ManGame-legend Damiano Cunego (now 33 years old) wasn't exactly the very top-favorite when he entered Italy's Grand Tour after a two-year abscence (with Ricco and Phinney winning the previous editions). Anyway, 'Little Prince' had still something big left in his legs for 2014 Giro and slipped into pink with two consecutive stage-wins on day six and seven!

He would then never give his beloved Maglia Rosa away for the following two weeks, even though Team B&O's premium stage racer Aleksandr Pluchkin gave him a huge fight - eventually finishing 2nd behind Cunego by just 54 seconds: the smallest margin that Cunego had ever won his favorite race (his biggest came at 12 minutes on runner-up Pellizotti, when he crushed the 2010 Giro)..

Cunego ain't no longer a GT contender, but he's still racing - now at the Continental level. His record numbers at the Giro d'Italia are simply impressive: 6 overall victories, 20 stage-wins, 4 points and 3 KoM classifications (as well as two white jerseys). Will anyone be ever able to break those records?

I don't want to overreact but I think Cunego was a good rider in the MG

Nah. He was just lucky...
