Lotto is really piling on the wins in the early season.

Well done to Løfkvist and the team that claims to 'be cycling'.

Roelandts was super strong, i didin't expect him to survive today and he managed to beat all those stronger climbers MSR in his sight ? or maybe even Het Volk.

Starting at TDU(Roelandts, Greipel) or at San Luis(Peraud, Cav in Qatar) can make a big difference. Most riders who've raced on the southern hemisphere already have good form.

I hope so. He has had his bad share of injuries in these last classics seasons. I hope he can perform at the monuments. Lotto doesn't have much options so he has space. Maybe co-lead with Greipel at San Remo and Bak at Roubaix.

He didn't beat all the climbers, he was away with a 5 man group. Mollema won the sprint behind.

Nonetheless, he did survive the course before, so he's certainly got the form for the early classics.

very remarkable victory for Roelandts. Seems to be in top shape already. I wonder if he can (finally) make that big step forward this season.

Kind of the same as on Faron then, Mollema won the sprint behind there too. He said he felt strong in the last K yesterday but Peraud/Reda who escaped at the foot of the climb were already too far gone.

Maybe Mollema should start taking more risks?
