Martin had just chased for a couple of km to get back after being stuck in a fall, so he had an excuseGigs_98 said:I don't dislike Martin but four days ago he got dropped on the penultimate ascent of the Mur. He just doesn't have the shape to win here right now but still UAE rides like they have the fahorite in their team againBot. Sky_Bot said:
Yeah, Cummings is just... ugh, horrible teamplayer.tobydawq said:I have never seen a national championships' jersey be represented as poorly as the British has been by Cummings the last year.
I think his presence on the team is absolutely inexclicable in a race such as this.
How he never does anything but sit at the absolute last position in the bunch, living off his spring two years ago is disgraceful.
As I said, its simply too easy of a course and with the horrible finish in Ans, its not really rocketscience to see why this race is so conservatively ridden. Even after La Redoute until Faucons sucks, this course just need to be a lot better thought out and make the difficulties come in quick succession if you want to see good racing in this race apart from the the last 15 km.Red Rick said:The terrain between the Ferme Libert and the bottom of La Redoute is the big problem of this race.
The amount of sheer dumb luck in coincidental circumstances that allowed Gerrans to win will never happen again, much less this soon. If Matthews wins he might actually deserve it.WheelofGear said:
Did Matthews sleep with your girlfriend or something? Your hate for him is excessiveWheelofGear said:
Saint Nicholas is a problem as wellEroicaStradeBianche said:Until they'll keep Ans and Saint-Nicholas in the final it'll always be so boring, make the finish easier and make the central part harder
