he's their best uphill sprinter. won many of these in WT before.
Except this wasn't an uphill kick. And their best uphill sprinter is Alaphillipe.

P.S. I like Meersman. Whatever the field and the finish, against WorldTour competition, it's hard to get two wins. Particularly in a Grand Tour. So good on him.

will there be time gaps?
Hopefully. It was proper racing.
Froome was dropped from the front group long after the crash had happened. So that gap should stand and everyone who was obstructed by the crash should get Froome's time. We'll soon see.
crash happened right in front of him. he was right next to quintana but got held up a bit due to the crash

haha, good one. so quintana managed to finish in the same group with the winner but the guy that was second to sagan in a stage couldn't. he was slowed by the crash and then tried to come back, you should watch a replay.

Of course Meersman wins becaue the field was weak, but this is hardly something new. Degenkolb won 10 freaking stages in the Vuelta because of a poor field. Yet he can't win stages in the Tour and only won one in the Giro.
