yeah, I thought so as well, took the wrong line and kind of got boxed in a bit.IndianCyclist said:
Well for starters he shouldn't have taken any turns and then he probably shouldn't wait for the sprint either.Irondan said:
Yep, from Sagan's point of view it was a replay of E3 last two years, Strade Bianche 2014 & 2016, Omloop last year and several other races. He can't work hard until the last few kms and also win a sprint. I thought he might have tried to go solo in last 5km, or just stop working, recover and wait for the bunch.Gigs_98 said:Did anyone not see this coming?
I really though Sagan learned something after GW but this was simply a replay of last years race.
Me too. I think its close to impossible to drop GVA and Sagan.. banking on a lucky sprint was maybe his best bet.Irondan said:
He didn't have much of a choice but to take turns pulling, but I'll agree that he shouldn't have waited for the sprint either.Hugo Koblet said:Well for starters he shouldn't have taken any turns and then he probably shouldn't wait for the sprint either.Irondan said:
Yeah but he shouldnt have chased down GVA's attack in the last 5k. That was just stupid. He should have let sagan close it down and then counteredValv.Piti said:Me too. I think its close to impossible to drop GVA and Sagan.. banking on a lucky sprint was maybe his best bet.Irondan said:
He may well do, but not if he relies on his sprint from a small group. He's had three big wins in his career - two he went solo and the other was a flat sprint where he'd been hidden in the bunch all day. Either of these two options is how he should really approach these races - the sprinting after working hard is the one beloved patriot in his armour.BigMac said:Sagan will win most of the races that matter, not even worried.
