Hated the drone pictures. Shots like that make the race look like a commercial even if the orchards looked nice. Coverage of races is about information and showing what's going on most of all and I don't think drone images add anything.
 
No words needed. Love it.

Great bunch of contenders, some really nice to watch riders, very elegant...

I think Ganna has already had two peaks, for Giro, and even bigger, for the track Olympics. Maybe he will work a bit more towards the Worlds, but he already had a great year. Not easy to do it all, track, domestique, time trial specialist.

Happy for Küng who had quite some back luck and got beaten a lot this year. I suppose he prepared this really well.

Evenepoel was impressive considering the totally flat route and that pretty much everyone around him (apart from maybe Bissegger) is a really big guy.

Ganna also still has the Track WC after the ITT WC.
 
Worrying signs for Denmark recently: Apart from Cort and Honoré, I don't see the Danish riders getting impressive results. Asgreen 7th today is not as good as hoped, and Bjerg was a disaster. Fuglsang out, Kragh has not been at his best and crashed the other day, Vingegaard has been miserable too - it's a long list of disappointments actually. Not at all like a month ago, where the selection looked really strong.

Evenepoel has already beaten both Küng and Ganna on a flat EC course. I don't really find this performance impressive, but it's just further proof that he is a top level time trialer, when he's on form.

I didn't expect Küng to win, cause there is more often than not at least one guy better than him, but today there wasn't. Congrats to him!

Magnus Cort calling, reminding you of 3 Vuelta victories...

He was there in the first TT in France. Just one superman faster.
For the second TT he probably lost too much of his capabilities during the rest of the tour...

His Olympic TT was also up there with the very best. But also yet another Slovenian superman ;-)
Honestly might rather be fourth a min back with 2 seconds behind 2nd then 3rd 2 seconds behind first. I think that would eat at me way more knowing I was so close to winning and going over what I could have done different to be faster.

Küng was a beast today, didn't expect him to win after his medium showing in Benelux Tour. Ganna was great but probably slightly paid his effort yesterday and Evenepoel showed again that his lack of size is not a problem even for flat TTs (he didn't have the luxury of having a target during the course either).
