I still don't understand how he managed to crash back then.Sagan has not been the same rider since his crash in the 2018 TDF.
Van Aert indeed looking strong again. Van der Poel did say before the race he was going to work for Modolo. Not sure if this race says a lot about his form.Van Aert with a great result and looking really sharp before Milan San Remo unlike Van der Poel which was far from brilliant again.
Sagan looked well but I have some doubts about his ability in the climbs.
Apparently Sagan was showboating for spectators on a downhill ramp - he's not reached the same level since this day.I still don't understand how he managed to crash back then.
And he's still got it. He was swerved quite violently by his leadout-rider and had an amazing Houdini-like save today, which unfortunately resulted in Lampaert crashing.
But I actually think his sprint was decent today, just not well-timed.
I thought he - quite unnecessarily - was trying to bridge back up to the favourites' group because it would be cool for a guy like him to sit in a 25 man group with all the GC contenders after two tough climbs and in the bottom of the final one on a day where everybody was scared of the time limit.Apparently Sagan was showboating for spectators on a downhill ramp - he's not reached the same level since this day.
I think it is about motivation. He does not look hungry for victory anymore. Too much money guaranteed for too many years even without the major palmares. Ralph Denk and Bora owners are not Oleg Tinkoff. He still delivers a lot of publicity so they are satisfied. Their investment brought back the profit I think.Apparently Sagan was showboating for spectators on a downhill ramp - he's not reached the same level since this day.
3 stars for Pierre '5 mins back' Latour is very generous...Here my picks for today:
5* - Quintana N.
4* - Vlasov, M.A. Lopez
3* - Porte, Aru, Ciccone, G. Martin, Latour
2* - J. Herrada, O. Rodriguez, Dombrowski
1* - Madouas, Gallopin, Rosa, Taaramae, Carboni, Petilli, Rochas
