I thought his Avenir win last year was bit of fluke.

Well he's proving every single time this year - it was not !

What a win for him! :)

Ha ha ha. That was ridiculous. Did they know they know he was in front:confused:
IMO it looked like the camera didn't even know he was there. Took quite a while to see how the gap was.
 
Nice to see a break win a stage finally, thoug wi=hy Cannodale, FDJ and Quickstep had goes at pulling the peloton is beyond me.

Bad timing of crash for BI, perhaps some warnings b4 the tunne, i think a QS rider came a cropper ther too, the U-Turn with a charging peleton would have been messy in the run in.
 
A great win for a promising young rider. It's been a great race for him all around: He hasn't been consistent (as you'd expect from a 21 year old neo pro), but he's been climbing wth the main GC riders on about half the stages and he showed a winner's instincts when the opportunity presented itself.

Umm, does Kirby not realize Barguil won Lavenir. He said 4th place in Rund um Köln is his only previous good result.


His win at L'avenir include best point jersey and If I remember well, also good placing in the mountain competition
 
Argos with a non-sprint win. Very nice that they managed to get their hands on this great talent.

I hope Argos keeps on working to be more than an sprintteam. Dumoulin allready did great in the TdF and Eneco Tour as well.

He was suffering from back problems early this year, he said in the post-race interview.
