ok sorry for that take back my words. he was pretty defensive before the worlds and his second places and third were always dissapointing at least now he wins!
First of all, he has been always an attacker. That "wheel sucker" thing is mostly a media lie, easily dismissed if you watch real cycling. And two second places at the TdF is far from being a bad rider.dlwssonic said:well his riding kinda did, he never attacked and always got those 2nd places.
Definately very nice ride by Talansky. The whole race actually. And as someone else said, he would probably have been a major thread for a podium spot if he hadn't crashed on the prologue.Waterloo Sunrise said:Talansky ride of the day?
He was only 10 minutes before Dave & Tony, when the wind had definately already become an issue - not sure whether he ghosted in just before it picked up.
Yeh reasonable.Michielveedeebee said:any thoughts on Kreuziger? Better time than millar, Menjsov etç but way down on Evans, Martin. So not too bad I'd say
He rode early - the correct comparison is Wiggins, Porte, Dave Z.Michielveedeebee said:any thoughts on Kreuziger? Better time than millar, Menjsov etç but way down on Evans, Martin. So not too bad I'd say
Yeah, it'd be very typical for Evans to get second and both at Tirreno and Romandie. This year he's both tipped in his favour.dlwssonic said:ok sorry for that take back my words. he was pretty defensive before the worlds and his second places and third were always dissapointing at least now he wins!
You mean those races no one really wants to win?El Pistolero said:World Tour is really becoming just about Belgium and Australia lol.
Anyway can't wait for the real one week stage races: Tour de Suisse and the criterium du Dauphiné.
There will be no Tony Martin to worry about there.
Those who are not good enough for the Tour will want to win. But not the real big boys no. That would be stupid. You can't ride the Giro and Dauphiné together.goggalor said:You mean those races no one really wants to win?
It would of been nice to see him in the ardennes, he would of given a good show.Ferminal said:Kind of a better result than going to the Ardennes against the freak. Being cautious pays off in this case.
