No excuse for BEX last year, eh? Can’t keep excusing BEX for their performance when they’ve known the Aussie races are getting canceled, so they have to adjust accordingly, just like the rest of the peloton when they were scoring points over there. Instead, BEX ignored this. Luck hasn’t been on their side, but that’s the same for a bunch of other teams. Matthews should score points in Canada and WC’s if he has form, and Gronewagen in Maryland and whatever else he rides.You are overestimating BEX's ability in one day races - Recent history has shown they are average at this discipline - Undoubtedly, BEX has been the unluckiest team hit by COVID in the peleton - Theyv'e had their leader forced out of two GT's when in the position to gain a decent swag of UCI points - You then add the team had to withdraw halfway during Giro 2020 and more importantly there have been no Australian races in the last two years in which they usually collect a swag of points.
