edit: Talansky finally chases


Dunno why he was looking at Boswell to chase. He's clearly the weakest of the four.

Majka has always been great at attacking.

But he never works.

Unless Majka and Talansky are both cooked (which is possible) his chances are around zero in a sprint

Surprising sprint by Talansky. Cannondale has its WT win!

Does it count as a proper world tour win? I mean its California.

Good ride from Talansky.

A lot of respect for Boswell, he really fought hard.

Lol.

How does this team survive.

Good sprint, tricky finale.

Majka was probably the strongest, but Talansky rode a great sprint taking the right curves. How big was the gap between Talansky/Majka and Bennett?

That's Talansky in a nutshell, a good diesel climber with a decent sprint and good TT skills.
