Ewan is keen on the World's so he will suffer through an unsuitable race - Actually if he rode Slovakia he'd nearly win the GC on that parcour.
I don't think it makes much sense to pretend that it's perfectly normal that he drags himself home alone, a minute within the time limit, three minutes behind a group containing Mareczko, 12 days before a major goal.

The only hope one can have if one hopes for his success at Worlds is the fact that he did something similar (if not even worse) in Tirreno a week before he was Van Aert's equal on the Poggio.

But the WCRR is a different beast and he is not going to feature there. That would be quite sensational, IMO.

Well the only major mistake he made at M-SR was to not pull a Kirsipuu and counter attack to win solo. He really was surprisingly strong there, so he might know what he does right now.

But if he constantly rides into the red zone I don't know if that's sufficient indeed.

I simply think he doesn't have the form right now, which wouldn't be all that weird after him crashing out of the Tour and his delayed comeback.

But i was thinking/hoping the same about him being not feeling well in the Tirreno to just be incredibly strong a week later. Only that Ewan has a shot at becoming WC. One that's good but not in the form of his life doesn't.

I've posted in another thread that it's doubtful Ewan will make the final of the World's - He is good at specialised preparation for races and the Tour of Luxembourg fits into that template.

Ewan won a hard stage at the Benelux Tour - His form is OK.
 
Brian Holm: "Let's not forget that ten years ago, Boasson Hagen was as good as Van Aert is now".

Just fire the guy.
To be fair to EBH his first seasons as a pro actually made it look like he could reach a Van Aert like level in sprints, classics and TTs, and Holm probably mostly remembers the great potential he saw in him at the time. In the end he didn't really come close to achieving it though.

Yes, but isn't that exactly his problem? He gets something into his head and then twists reality and forces his ridiculous views on the viewers.
