2 minute hill is pretty aerobic, especially at the end of a 6 hour race. Trentin probably burned through his phosphate system and then poofed completely.Not really how it works, an anaerobic effort is an anaerobic effort. Trentin did about 50m and then had nothing left. In hindsight the best option was to try to drop them in the hills yes, but Pedersen just looked better by the end
I was looking at the same thing. Maybe they both thought that Pederson was too weak. But he surely lost his chance there on that climb.Pedersen was by far the strongest in that sprint, he deserves it!
Italy rode a great race, maybe Trentin should have worked with Küng on that climb durning the last lap, but that's just cycling.
All 3 guys deserved to win, that was a great race.

I'm not sure. He did a whole lot of work in that group, starting from when he escaped with Craddock, all the way until 1 km to go. Yes, maybe he should have sat on. But on the other hand, with his (lack of) explosiveness, he did secure a medal in this way. Looks like from the point he dropped Moscon he decided to sacrifice any chance of a victory for a guaranteed medal.Kung strong like ox, smart like tractor
