Around 22:30 in this video is the whole sprint of Dunkerque stage 3

Bouhanni was ideally positioned in second wheel after a big lead-out by Geoffroy Soupe (largest beard in the peloton). Then Bouhanni overtook one sprinter to take the stage victory. Not really impressive-looking, but shows that when properly positioned Bouhanni can win versus some mid-level sprinters. The beards may have something to do with it

Bouhanni isn't a worse sprinter than Viviani after all!

...but the problem is the hype and thinking that you made it to the top. Viviani will be smarter and understand that in the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed wins. But you're no Marcel. Bouhanni didn't get that.

Viviani is both a better sprinter and a better human than Bouhanni. The sooner Bouhanni is brought back to earth and learns his place the better he will become.

Hopefully a few years in the wilderness will do Bouhanni some good and Cofidis will not automatically receive two GT wildcards every year at the expense of better teams.


I don't think Cofidis constantly getting double GT wildards is so much because of Bouhanni as it's because Cofidis (the company) is

...in the kingdom of the blind...now he will think that he's back in business and won't listen to anybody.

This win may be the worst thing that happened to him. He needs jail time, bread and water (for a cyclist it's good :D ) and re-commit. Stop the diva stuff. He won against a bunch of average riders, with a perfect lead-out. It's far, far, far, from Cav' and the Renshaw slingshot.

Then 53rd? And Tocard, oops excuse me Coquard wins one.

We have only Nono. Pauvre France...

5 victories in a month. (Points jerseys count :mad: ) Nacer Bouhanni is back :razz:

TDF here we come provided there are no late night punch-ups. Dunno if he is doing any one-day races first.

Kittel, Demare, Kristoff, Sagan and Co need to factor in the Nacer :exclaim:

I'm guessing a previous argument has been had and the poster is expressing that they are angry with the people who disagree.

Points jerseys obviously do not count. However four wins is pretty good going. I’d like to see a hungry Bouhanni back on top of his game.

It was pre-emptive anger suppressing any opposition :lol:

as in Points Jerseys count :mad: because I say so. (I really think they should. They're cool and under-rated and Nacer needs all the victories he can muster)

Nacer continues to win despite his own team trying to stop him. :lol:

The guy is a beast. Can't wait for the Tour. They'll need 2 breakfast tables though and dinner tables for that matter. Cedric Vasseur has sure lived up to his word and got the team really fired up. Trouble is the whole thing may explode. :D

Would comparing Nacer to Gadret be a fair statement?
