LMAO. Geiger's Alien lives.
 
Ganna unble to beat Ayuso in a shot flat TT after his poor result in Algarve doesn't bode well for the rest of the season. Can still get into the leader's jersey to save his TA and the same goes for Milan.

Ayuso though confirming that he is in great shape in this early season expect a lot for him this year.

Vingegaard wasn't too bad given that he is obviously better in hilly TT's but still with some work to do. It will need to be at his best on San Giacomo or Monte Petrano.
Tbh too early to say for Ganna, it's an odd year for him as he's pinning absolutely everything on the Olympics in July/August.

Kind of like how mid he was towards the back end of 2022, only to demolish the hour record. Ineos tend to be very good at managing the different skillsets between track and road, so we will see.

And in fact Ganna said he's happy with today's result becasue last year he lost by 11 seconds in this opening TA ITT course. Still, to lose to Ayuso, a much lighter rider, by just 1 sec. must grate on his nerves, despite having said to the contrary.

Reason's for Vingo's performance....

1. It's March! (pay no attention to Camino February)
2. Needs a reason to light up a mtf (or whatever that is)
3. GT riders don't do good ITT in one week stage races (pay no attention to Ayuso)
4. Maybe Ayuso is that good (see Ganna)
5. Conserving energy (this week. And for reason's not specified).
6. Caught a case of September ITT fever.
7. The real Vingo is still in Tiede
8. Playing it cool after Pogi went full ret@rd last weekend.
9. It's the damn helmet, man!
10. He was on the phone with Remco
 
all of the bitching about this *** helmet all over the cycling media is more annoying than having to look at the helmet itself (not referring to this forum at all). people need to get a life, it's one team and it's just for time trials. relax. i guess it's a slow news day.
