For goodness sake. What an anticlimax...

I kind of feel the same, but that's most likely because I don't have much love for the Etixx boys.

Sure great riders, but I just don't feel much for Etixx.

In reality it was ofcourse a great climax.
In the sense, that it was unexpected yes. But in the sense that the two main characters of the breakaway didn't fight it out head to head, it was a big anti-climax to have Trentin sneaking up from behind and steal the win.
 
Wow I need to watch this stage! Trentin is a brilliant, classy rider with so much talent. I hope he gets his monument sooner rather than later. Besides he's a complete team player who has done huge amounts of work for Jungels, Kittel and Brambilla. Really well deserved and always nice to see a "sprinter" winning a "mountain stage" :)

epic fail from Moser. Not even in the now that Trentin was coming...?

Easy to say typing on a forum. What could he do? Had he ridden harder on the final k he'd have been out sprinted by Brambilla. He gave it dig on the cobbled wall but couldn't drop Brambilla either. It was a great final, It was just unfortunate for him that it all aligned perfectly for Etixx.

I don't know. Didn't him sneaking up from behind and surprising the otherwise likely winner make it a great finish? It kind of does ofcourse, allthough for me it was an anticlimax as well as I was hoping for Moser.

Without favouring riders it was a great climax imo.

Yeah, I feel like Trentin always wins in some lucky way, like Van Avermaets puncture in Paris-Tours last year and such... He is a smart rider nonetheless.

Great ride by Modolo and Arndt by the way! Modolo wasn't lying when he said he was climbing quite well!
