Roche stated he wants to work with Bjarne to improve his skills, above all, the time trial to boost his chances at GC.

Kreuziger had the same approach. Also I guess he has special interest in how Alberto being the hot favourite face the competition mentally. Being the mental side one of his weakness.


At the same time being a succesful super dom is prestigious in cycling, more than anonymous top 10.
Yes I think it's a good move for both Roche and Kreuziger. Why not try something else.

You seem to be forgetting a guy called Michael Rogers in that equation

Well, well his best result ever. Good to see he is delivering. And the best result Saxo have had this season.

Roman needs to race as a captain every race to take points. Contador points doesn't count. Except, perhaps, TdF where he should have a free role.

After last year, I had pretty much written off Kreuziger as another over-hyped rider that never would amount to doing that much.

But after today I have a new found respect for him. Chapeau Roman, really earned that win today.

Kreuziger is not riding the Giro IIRC. Majka won't be the leader because of his crash.

This performance proves Kreuziger should focus on classics and leave stage races alone, or at least not target them for GC solely, rather stage hunting. Classics should be his number one goals.

not it isn't, tour de suisse and tour of romandie are more important races then AGR, still it is his best result in a few years and a great result overall

for the first time in a long long time this looked like the kreuziguer of 08 and that is a good thing.
