Some huge engines there that would be able to control flat stages and deliver Steegmans, Boonen and Cavendish to the last 750m.

Best for the win, agree totally, but for max entertainment you want a train that goes wrong for Cav so that he has to pick other rider's pockets like McEwan used to.

Awesome to watch him win like that. Not so keen on the supertrain with predictable result.

P-R and Ronde are not the only classics, Hagen could possibly do well at M-S-R maybe Amstel.

Even Sagan admitted his bike position is wrong for P-R. Funny he cant control his bike on the cobbles but can pull wheelies on the flat lol.

I think he can do well over 200 km, Worlds was still 260K although its not totally comparable to the classics, its still a long race and he was pretty strong at the end.

He also was very strong in Tours and the HEW classic which are long races (okay they aint that hard) but EBH is still only 25 years old.

However I still dont think he will play a main role in any of the classics except for MSR. He is good in cobbles and hills but not worldclass.

Btw wtf kirby was on commentary? I thought es weren't covering it.
lol, wrong word. Information rather.
And perhaps shifted out is too strong. Instead shifted a bit down.

Perhaps Kirby was subcontracted. Dunno.
