Despite some relatively poor tactics from Epix or whatever they are called this year, I found such a ride extremely suspicious. I have never, ever seen a rider, no matter how strong win in such a tactical situation. He was clearly stronger than the others, chasing down attack repeatedly, alone.sniper said:sarcasm or really no doubts about Stannard?
One mitigating factor would be that it's February and he may be peaking for these very early races. If he (and Sky generally) continues to dominate like this I would find it damning.
So yeah, sarcasm. But to be fair I only find it highly suspicious, not convincing.
