Henao also contested the sprint for second at Amstel (after falling twice) and finished in the group at 18 seconds yesterday. Stannard did well at MSR but they can't be happy with their overall performances.Leonardus said:Obviously Gilbert was a bit disappointing although he was not that bad in AGR. Vanendert was nowhere and I didn't see much from Uran, but Sky in general was disappointing again in the classics. Except for the nice wall climbing performance from Henao in FW.
Also worth mentioning is Astana, strong team with last year winners and what kind of result did they get?
I read that Uran came into this week with very little racing behind him. I don't know if thats due to a health issue or because is focus is firmly on the Giro.
