Vos simply couldn't miss this opportunity.
Well done.
Spratty in excellent form, but just too much alone ahead.
Kirchmann something like a hidden gem... and another interview by Cille.
Elite top 10.

Entertaining race.
 
What is the logic behind those start times? Sometimes riders start only 1 or 3 minutes apart and then it is suddenly up to 15 minutes between riders before going back to 1, 3, 6, etc. Minutes between them. If there is a pattern to this then I can't find it.

do you mean in general, over the season? Because today, it's same (more or less) as usual, 1 minute gap for everyone apart for those in the end (2 minutes for the Top 25)

Martin, Haga and Asgreen will be underway as 4th, 5th and 6th. Everybody will know what to beat from the beginning.
They are likely not super fresh and even more likely not to go all out with the mountains waiting in the next week.

I hear Martin has implied it, and Lampaert has said it (even if Lampaert wasn't mentioned in your post).

I realised I *** up due to your response.
I was looking at the start times of riders Sporza deemed interesting instead of all of them. :redface:

Asgreen and Haga have the same time on both the 1st and 2nd intermediate!

What a battle :D
What happens if they have same (best) time at the finish? Both in hot-seat?
It'll be half painful when WvA destroys their time.
Or pleasant, when they don't have to sit on top of each other anymore…

So... Lampaert's been asked to take it easy, but Asgreen clearly hasn't… :confused:
