What is better for sponsors? Boring wheelsucker who win in the last 50m or agressive rider, who is not affraid to make a move, but lose a stage in the last 50m?

In such a small race, nobody will remember who was aggresive and who not after a couple of days.


In few days noone will remember who won this stage. But a lot of ppl will remember who is agressive rider and who is boring wheelsucker...and I would say: being agressive rider = more fans = more interesting rider for sponsors...


Uran is paid to win, and that's what he just did. He's no entertainer, nor is paid for that :rolleyes:

How dare Uran to win?! He should have attacked for the sake of it. Who cares if you get countered and finish 12th? Certainly not EF Education, who, you know, pay him, to get results.

The way Impey got over the climbs today and a similar parcour for stage 4 and then the ITT gives him a chance to podium.

Love him or hate him, Uran was the only one to follow Froome in TdF last year. How badly EF do in the TTT could decide his fate this year.

The peloton is not allowing any breaks go today. The pace is very high. They are about to start with the first climb to Jezersko.

Great ride by Rafal Majka as well, given that he had a big crash in stage 1.

Today's stage should be exciting as well.

Roglic impressive. I wonder if he can survive the 1st week of the Tour. Then he'll be a candidate for sure

Roglič destroys the field going solo in the last 25km. He is ready for the Tour. In France he'll be even better.

It was another very nice stage, great route and scenery and fantastic crowds. Pogačar :cool: He's coming too.
