Filippo Ganna sacrifices Giro d'Italia pink jersey to work for Bernal Wed, 12 May 2021 00:00:00 +0100-Pink has shared the official trailer for her Amazon Prime Video documentary 'All I Know So Far' – you can watch it here.
Helmed by The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey, the film follows Pink on her 2019 ‘Beautiful Trauma Tour’ as she tries to balance being a mother of two, wife, businesswoman and performer.
Announcing the doc back in March, Pink wrote: “Directed by the one and only Michael Gracey. Starring the cutest kids, made by me. I’m in there, too. Come jump on the tour bus and see how it really goes. Cause it’s Wembley Fucking Stadium.”
P!NK: All I Know So Far, which will include a mixture of footage on the road, behind-the-scenes interviews and personal material, will be released on May 21. You can watch the official trailer below.
She said: “This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities.”
She continued: “Battling COVID-19 along with my 3-year-old son was the most physically and emotionally challenging experience I have gone through as a mother.
“Weeks after receiving our test results, my son was still ill and feverish. It was a terrifying time, not knowing what might come next.”
Meanwhile, earlier tonight (May 11), Pink joined Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choirs to close out this year’s BRIT Awards with an emotive performance of ‘Anywhere Away From Here’.
Introducing the final performance of the night, host Jack Whitehall described the song – which is available to buy now and will see all proceeds going to NHS charities – as “a powerful reflection of the new hope that we’ve found; there’s light at the end of the tunnel.”
He added: “A massive big up to the key workers here tonight and across the country. We will never be able to thank you guys enough. It’s been a year of fear and isolation, but music has an incredible power to connect us.
“We will never again take for granted the chance to gather like this.”
Pink shares trailer for upcoming new documentary 'All I Know So Far' Wed, 12 May 2021 00:00:00 +0100-Italian journalist Beppe Conti criticises Ineos and Ganna for not respecting the maglia rosa.
Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) sacrificed any hopes of keeping his pink jersey on the road to Sestola, working generously for team leaders Egan Bernal and Pavel Sivakov on the flat roads and early climbs in the Apennines before finally being distanced with 40km to go.
Ganna enjoyed two days in the Giro d'Italia leader's jersey after winning Saturday’s opening time trial in Turin and understandably filled the headlines in Italy after confirming his success of 2020.
The Italian media and especially the Italian tifosi wanted him to fight to hold the maglia rosa as long as possible. Some even think he can be a future Grand Tour contender and should demand a bigger leadership role at Ineos Grenadiers.
However, Ganna loyally stuck to team orders during the stage to Sestola and had no qualms in sacrificing his chances of staying in the maglia rosa. After all his hard work he finished 115th on the stage, 21:08 down on stage winner Joe Dombrowski (UAE Team Emirates), and so slipped to 115th overall.
Some of the Italian media had already criticized Ineos for not giving Ganna a protected role and a chance to attack on the Poggio at Milan-San Remo. The criticism re-emerged after the finish in Sestola.
Ganna had played down any tension in the team after Milan-San Remo by revealing he had been ill before the race. This time veteran television journalist Beppe Conti quickly criticised Ineos and Ganna for not respecting and trying to defend the maglia rosa.
Conti suggested that Ineos got a good result thanks to Bernal but did everything else wrong by not putting a rider in the big break of the day, and by Ganna doing most of the chasing at the front of the peloton rather than getting Moscon, Puccio or Castroviejo to do it.
“I can’t understand why he did it, it was very bad to see,” Conti told the Italian website Bicisport.
“I’ve got a lot of respect for Ganna and directeur sportif Matteo Tosatto but it was a crime to see how they decided things. It’s right that Ganna works for Bernal but within limits. It’s one thing riding for 10km, but riding for half the day is something else.”
With so many race contenders in the 25-rider breakaway on Tuesday, the pink jersey was certain too move off the shoulders of Ganna, regardless of whether he had remained in the peloton. But there was still criticism.
“Ganna’s a champion but shouldn’t always be ready to work for the others, even if the others are Bernal, Kwiatkowski and Pidcock,” he said.
“It’s not all the team’s fault, he’s got to speak out too and make them understand. After wasting his chance at Milan-San Remo, today was another lost chance. I don’t want to see a third or fourth episode.
“Ineos is the right team for Ganna because they help him so much with equipment and they give him the freedom to ride the track and in the future the Hour Record. It’ll continue to be the right team for him as long as he speaks out and makes himself heard.”
