I agree, and he had a better leadout. Give TD 5% more top end and JLV will be really hard to beat.Roglic is simply just a level or two above Bernal at the moment.
Froome could do be into a quick ascent to form in the next few weeks. I have a feeling he will improve like he's done more often. Let's see. In any case it may likely not be enough though.I agree, and he had a better leadout. Give TD 5% more top end and JLV will be really hard to beat.
Also agree that Sivakov and or Sosa could make the difference.
Not sure about Froome's form -- I can't tell if he's racing to find his top end or this is really his level.
Bennett looked so strong I don't really worry about having to sacrifice Dumo early.I really hope JV do not sacrifice big Tom too early in the TDF. He pulled for a long time and still did his thing riding to power to stay near. If in top shape Dumo could put a couple of mins into Bernal in the only ITT at the end.
They surely know that. I think Dumo was riding earlier cause his form is less certain so they don't want Dumoulin to drop while Bennett is riding. Bennett was also higher on GC.bennett can’t win the tour. Dumo can. That was my angle.
So far it looks Jumbo bought themselves a gregario di lusso in Dumoulin, Roglic is the only leader in Le Tour. They figured it out that all they need is a train with a few more watts than the Sky train.Man I hope they're planning to send Dumoulin to the Giro or Vuelta after this Tour.
