Is Cipo washed up?overtrained

Ok, so last year he had an awesome season. Over the winter he talked about honoring the rainbow jersey and winning races. He's only won 2 Giro stages and 2 in Tirreno Adriatico this year and hasn't raced since the Giro. All of Specialized's road stuff revolves around the rainbow colors but Cipo just hasn't produced this year. Now he might not start the Vuelta.

He might as well retire.

With 4 wins this year, that will be more than most good riders will even get. And since he hasn't raced since May how would anybody including him know if he's washed up?

He might be on his way to retirement it would be hard to say it was because he was washed up. BTW, I believe he's said he's going to ride the worlds and for DV next year.
