This is the first time trial Rolland did and yes it's still February, but Europcar talked a lot about a new TT frameset and about improving his TT skils in the past months.

Not very impressed by his position, also their TT bike looks like a road bike with aero bars. Definitely doesn't "look" as fast as Shiv or P4 at least.

That Colnago model is out from some years already, nothing new.
I would be expecting them to try out the new gear as much as possible but still..it's early february.

Rob Goris punched an FDJ guy because he insulted him. FDJ filed in a complain with the jury, but they ignored it.

That Accent guy is too thin to be Goris.

It should be Jempy Drucker, who finished in 7th place and highest of Accent Jobs that day. I remember he complained about a "kamikaze move" by Bouhanni in an interview

Here it is, he sent a text to rtl.lu after the stage:

Quote:
"I was well-placed for the sprint, Leif Hoste guided me perfectly throughout the local circuit. Then during the actual sprint Bouhanni makes a kamikaze move from left to right over 250 m, I had to brake in order not to fall and then start my effort again. I think I finished around 7th, but it could have been a top 3. I had the right legs and without Bouhanni's move it would certainly have been possible"

Bouhanni is developing (or already has!) a reputation for being unable to sprint without changing direction.
