Yeah, but only because LL Sanchez is Valverde's friend.

I voted for EF but I'm happy for Uran.

Who would have thought Katusha with Kittel would be at least on the podium (well, at least 3 of us).


Agreed that Astana got their win today because Sanchez is a good friend and training partner of Valverde.

Top 3: Team UAE, Katusha, Sunweb
This is an odd result, in my opinion.
Who tips these 3 teams for top 3?

These 3 are high budget strong teams.
All with strong TTer / Sprinter / Punchy..

The problem are all the nonsense races that are considered here. Frankly, it should only be *all WT teams present* races, otherwise it just becomes a game of who is most willing to send good riders to random races.

We tried to host a "Last WT team to get a WT win" but Cannondale never gave anybody a real shot at winning it as they went two years without a WT win.

2016 was the only year in which Cannondale would win the "Last WT team to get a WT win", though.

EDIT: They wouldn't win even in 2016 because they didn't get a WT win that year, so they weren't the last team to get a win. :lol:

Katusha out.

UAE versus Sunweb for the win.

A very quick decision of this competition compared to other years, I assume.

And it's not even Kittel :D
Surprised by the two remaining competitors.. Costa or Modolo should get one before Sunweb this week!

*Kristoff.

Modolo does not have much relevance to this competition anymore.

You mean because he isn't top tier?
I just remembered having seen him either at the starlist of Algarve or Andalucia.

When are Matthews and Dumoulin set to debut? Sunweb could take this out...

Dumoulin will debut next week at Abu Dhabi where there is a time trial. Matthews probably at Paris-Nice to my knowledge.

The problem for Sunweb in this competition is that apart from Tour Down Under and the Cadel race, they didn't ride any races until the Tour of Oman where Søren Kragh could have won something but crashed out.

Kristoff still has a lot of opportunities before the TT in Abu Dhabi (where Dumoulin will likely win) but he hasn't really been that close to a victory yet, which is surprising. Dan Martin could also close the competition on the Malhão tomorrow.

That is if Walscheid or Theuns don't win the sprint tomorrow in Oman.

I cross my fingers for Rui Costa, Kristoff and Dan Martin to finish this by tomorrow.

Matthews is on the startlist of Omloop.

Well, not that easy , Dennis and Van Emden are normally better than him in a 11km TT.

You were expecting both Costa and Kristoff to win on Green Mountain? ;)

Guess it's all up to Martin now...
