I wouldn't call this 50km criterium a race, but it was a nice win anyway...

Least we got to see the exciting finish. Would've liked to watch the victory lap too. Hopefully more will be posted on YouTube soon.
Bora now saying Peter not doing Omloop or KBK going to spend time with Marlon and then concentrate on Northern classics. So definitely hoping for better coverage of Tour Down Under .

He's been vague about this in the past few week, but Oss already said he won't be riding Omloop and Kuurne. Good it's out now. Last year he got sick for Strade Bianche, maybe that also has something to do with it as well, back to racing too quick coming back from altitude.

Maybe the 100 km criteriums are more to your liking ? Even the race callers would be asleep.

Yes, I hadn't thought to check Oss's schedule, good point, that would have been an indicator of Sagan's. They are now racing every race together. Am ridiculously excited to see the difference Oss makes. Was so disappointing last season to see Sagan sitting up when he thought he was being made to do all the work. Bora saying he wants to get more monuments this year. He's always hinted at a very early retirement and maybe that will be when he's 30 so got to start getting serious about how many more big races he can claim.

He should really try to target the overall in TDU.

Let's say he win two stages (Stirling and Uraidla), get 2nd in another (Lyndoch or Victor Harbor) 3rd in a third (Lyndoch or Victor Harbor). That's already a lot of bonus seconds before Old Willunga Hill.

Then he can allow himself to lose 20-30 secs on OWH. Porte seems to care more about that stage than the overall.

And then there is the last stage to Adelaide where he can win a couple of bonus seconds as well.

Let's see. Stage 4 will tell. If he wins that stage, I think he will win the overall.
