He always bad in those short up-hill sprints for some reason. Not the first time.

What’s up with Astana’s overwhelming presence at the latter stage of races this year?

2015 Astana. Gotta love it. The Giro will be fun after all! :D

Who will be Froome's best domestiques come the Giro anyways? I mean Landa isn't there, G is not riding, Nieve is gone as well. Is Poels supposed to ride? Im not really convinced by the likes of Cruz and Rosa, or the rest, apart from Bernal!

That punch by Sosa in the end by the way. Pretty insane

.. while Lopez seemingly sprinted backwards again. He is so bad at these explosive finishes that its kinda fun, even when we are talking about 6-8 min efforts. Pure, pure climber, the Giro will be great Im sure.

Aight, lets see how good Poels will be. I think he should be recovered and if he is, he will probably be the best domestique in the race. Its a fine team, but Poels has bad days and the rest of the team is fine, but not great tbh. Exciting times.

I have the exact same feeling - suddenly I just can't wait after getting flashbacks from that great race in 2015 with 5 blues at the front.

By the way, why did Bora field a sprint train for this one: Kolar, Saramotins, Pelucchi, Pfingsten, Pöstlberger, Schwarzmann to lead out Großschartner??
