Greipel at Race of Berlin (I'm not sure what is the exact name) was definitely better

By the way, what does "best exhibition" mean?

What does exhibition even mean? lol

I'm gonna assume best performance of the last 5 years?

One thing is for sure: it's definently not a guy who sprinted 1 minute on a hill...

Talk about being biased

He was riding at best 2,3km at the head of the group. And he was just riding tempo, not going all out. And it was only against 1 guy.

Don't get me wrong, it's impressive. But not the best thing of the last 5 years.

Good enough to drop half of the group for a while.
