Mysterious outcome: Kanter scores with reporters and associations, but fails with the publicSport
- The Tour: on pedalling power of Kangert, Taaramäe and NibaliSportCome Saturday, best cyclists on planet start from Leeds, England hitting the road for the grand Tour de France – to be in Paris, in three weeks. Among others, two Estonians will saddle up and ride: Tanel Kangert and Rein Taaramäe. If Mr Kangert were team leader and Mr Taaramäe on top form, both might end up among ten best. Alas! One is assisting the Astana star Vincenzo Nibali, and the other is nowhere near his two-years-back turbo performance.
- Hero of the Week: Tanel Kangert, too tough for mere helperSportTanel Kangert is tough. Top tough. One of the few riders in this whole world able to climb mountains, take the excruciating pain in tempo ride with lactic-acid-laden muscles, outlast hours of cold and rain, stomach the toil of long stages… for three entire weeks, never letting go. «If Kangert hadn’t had to help the Astana leader Vincenzo Nibali, he would surely have made it to top ten, overall, in Italy,» affirmed the Estonian bicycling guru Jaan Kirsipuu.
