Garmin did some chasing today, as they weren't represented in the break. Dekker probably was the first in line, as he was already gone on GC.

He was 9th in MSR, that's a pretty good result. But he hasn't shown much else in the classics, BMC signed him mostly just for a good classic and sprint domestique. Can't see him getting to a level where he'll be given leadership in any of the big races though.

Well Oss was Sagan's best doemstique last year in classics in general ( it's not like that was hard in that Liquigas classics squad but Sagan has valued him very much so ). He's a really good dom right now, has potential to be more than a domesituqe. But we'll have to wait and see.

He was a total beast in MSR. Pulling for Nibali and then escorting Sagan to the finish.
