Alien.Not sure if this is alien or just how very poor the talent level is in general in the women's peloton. On the other hand, it is a great example of why women's racing isn't close to as popular as men's. The depth of talent just isn't there.
Sure, the depth isn't quite the same as the men's WT but that was a ride the likes of Landis and Chiappucci would be proud of. The distribution of talent amongst nations atm is the real issue, with so many ridiculously strong Dutch riders as LS pointed out above.
When you have the same riders distributed amongst the WWT teams the dominance just isn't the same. DQS IMHO is more dominant than Boels Dolmans for example.
