Quite sure Dennis would have been 2nd at around 20/30s without the incident. Still Roglic did an excellent TT and especially last climb. The road bike switch really helped him out

I agree. Although I don't think the bike switch made such a big difference. He would have beaten Froome even without the switch I think. But it was amazing watching him dancing on the pedals on the last climb.

Man I can't wait for next year when he is supposed to make another step forward. After the race he said it's incredible to share the podium with two GT winners and that his goal for the following years is to become a GT contender as well.

He seems to be in good shape at the beginning of this season, too bad for the naturalized TTT. I think he could've gone even higher, but he was great today, staying with all but Valverde and Yates at the top.
Image Quack!

I think he was the strongest today alongside Valverde and Yates, just he wasted too much energy at the bottom of the climb.

According to PCS Strade and Tirreno are his next races. So no Algarve this year?

I have a feeling he'll have an incredible season. He looked so strong today. Prediction: he is going to win a WT stage race this year.

It doesn't make sense not to race there. He won last year, the route suits him, Kruijswijk will ride in Andalucia and there's no chance he takes a one month brake till his next race. That's why I'm pretty sure he'll ride in Algarve.

You are pretty sure? Based on what? Roglic himself has said Strade Bianche is his next race after Valencia.

I dont get this thread ?

the new Landa when Landa has delivered no big win?
a bit farcical

Roglic is an excellent TTer...much better than Landa but he has not produced yet consistent climbing over 3 weeks ..if he can then he more like the new Evans or LeMond

He will go to Teide now, no more races before Strade.

Yes, I was wrong. He is not doing Algarve. Thanks for the info. I didn't know about the altitude training camp.
