Well 2014 is the outlier, the race was over and the break just sailed away. All other editions of Zonc from Ovaro has been aggressive ascents, especially the great 2010.Dekker_Tifosi said:Though even the Zonc is not always the same. I looked up some previous results, sometimes huge gaps within the top 10 (up till 3/4 minutes), but sometimes the first 5 of the 'bigs' are still within 50s, with 4 within 20sec of eachother.Blanco said:They will, Zoncolan is around the corner, and there you haven't got teams, trains, super domestiques, it's every man for himself already at 8-9km to go. We'll see who's the best "real" climber there. Comparing to Zonc, every other mountain so far was a joke.Dekker_Tifosi said:For anyone aside Dumoulin it's simple. Attack from further out. Don't let Yates outpunch you.
Pinot, Pozzo, etc have to try something from further than 3km out.
So it all depends..
