omg Vanmarcke can sprint now
He always could? :rolleyes:
Not very well. Now he's beating Colbrelli, it's a pretty big step up from losing to Stannard
Aren't you talking about van Avermaet? :p When did Vanmarcke lose a sprint to Stannard?
Last Paris roubaix. Vanmarcke tends to lost to Van Avermaet in sprints in classics
 
Can someone tell me why Ruben Guerreiro finished 6th in this race?

And yeah, you might be right. He probably even values that one higher considering he is Italian after all. But its a decently big one day race on the calendar (is it a classic?) so its bigger IMO.

Because he used his sprinting legs to get away on the cobbles. He can ride a decent sprint but it depends on the day, really.
 
Agreed, but as anderis said he is improving a lot in other regards this year. His sprint being one of them, because for every impressive sprint there normally is about three or four less good ones for whatever reason (admittedly normally he is spent). But if he is able to sprint like this every race now, he won't have to bury himself to drop the likes of GvA as he'll probably beat them in a sprint.

Yeah, I don't think you can compare that to a 'real' sprint.
