Morton knew the finished and attacked at the perfect time. Costa has a future. Cannondale has just had a miserable year. There's got to be something going on internally. They are just so discombobulated. The are a "World Tour Team" in name alone.

To me it looked a lot like lack of legs but I only watched the final km's.

Anyway, I thought Costa was more of a time-trialist. Obviously climbing well in Utah just means he climbs well in Utah but it's highly impressive for such a young kid.

Costa can do everything. Climbing, TT, hills, cobbles... He's incredible.

His performance tells something about the level of u23 racing these days btw. It's not like he's winning everything there.

Stage 4 and 5 looks very hilly. Are they as hard in reality as on paper?! Then we will be in for an amazing race here in Utah.

Very deserved victory, he was the strongest today.

Stage 4 is flat, that profile is not very good. Stage 5 is last year's stage to Bountiful redoux, with a more meaningful finale which should let attacks stick unlike last time.

The thing with the U23 level is that sometimes it's very close to the top level those riders will ever achieve. Not saying Costa will be like that but some dutch or danish riders had a great hype only to fail in meeting the expectations in the pro peloton.
