Maybe Mollema should start taking more risks?
Last time Mollema did a real attack he won, two years ago in Poland. He's only capable of climbing well if he can suck wheels, I hope he can change that in the future. He could've won more if he took a risk once in a while.

Donno if mentioned already, but Rebellin wrote on fb that him and half of his team suffered intestinal problems during the race and he was dissapointed as he thought he could do even better.

Actually dozens of riders on different teams suffered from stomach problems

Congrats to Lofkvist, Peraud and Roelandts.

I also thought Pantano did well and Reda did too.

Scary that Monfort went so badly- hopefully he can better by the TDF.

And you're a fan of Rodriguez, wheelsucker extraordinaire

Very happy for Löfkvist if he can get some confidence he will be fun to watch the coming season. Apparently he won with 0,376 sec.

Very good result by Roche finishing 5th although he had stated that he would be disapointed not to make the podium. I know it is early in the year and the competition wasnt as strong as other races but there are early signs of significant improvement and so far it has been the best finish of all the Saxo-Tinkoff riders apart from Alberto in San Luis. Hopefully he can take his form onto Paris-Nice and take a stage/contend for overall. Right now in his career he should focus on trying to win week long stage races and GT stages as opposed to GC which will come in time.

Regarding monfort, i realised that he always does best when not under pressure. All his good performances were when he wasnt pressured ie. The vuleta top ten. His tt result.
