I dont know how this is not good for cycling. An unheralded amateur wins. The Dutch powerhouse screw up. There cant be better publicity than this. This can get more amateurs interested. The other possibility would be AVV/other dutch wins. Meh. that is what has been happening for god knows how many years.Sad to see what happened today, not good for woman cycling actually… but the winner deserves to win, very strong performance.
10 minutes for the break was way to many for such a route… so it’s everyone else mistake.
I would also say that this race is the poster child for reducing team sizes and increasing the uncertainty and the suspense.
