It feels so insane to me that Evenepoel won this race half a year before covid became a thing. How on earth is he around for so long already.
Just watch, he’ll still end up winning the rainbow jersey again.Alaphilippe is out due to his positive Covid test in the Tour de Wallonie: Julian Alaphilippe et Benoît Cosnefroy forfait à la Clasica San Sebastian - L'Équipe (lequipe.fr)
Cr*p year for him.
Wout: Hold my TdF legs.Just watch, he’ll still end up winning the rainbow jersey again.
If he’s recovered enough, he might decide to attack from far out.Pogacar is the strong favourite if he's recovered from the TDF.
Covi is out. He had COVID until last week and he's not ready. He'll be back at the Tour du Limousin.I think they will ride for Ayuso here, so an early attack from Pog to set it up for Ayuso later might very well happen.
With Covi (form?) and Almeida as well in the race they at least have some cards to play with here.
It's unsure WVA is starting, they are making the decision today. Apparently he was feeling tired after the TDF, which I guess is understandable after what he did there for 3 weeksAs Red Rick said it depends what those who have finished the tour have left in legs/recovered this week. Ordinarily they should be favoured over those without the tour in their legs.
Difficult to call a favourite between Wout and Pog as it depends on how it is raced I think. Instinct tells me Pog may make the race too difficult for Wout, but Wout’s form in the Tour was immense.
WvA is out with a cold:It's unsure WVA is starting, they are making the decision today. Apparently he was feeling tired after the TDF, which I guess is understandable after what he did there for 3 weeks
Weren't they supposed to share an ice-cream after their falling out in last year's World Championships? Maybe Wout doesn't want to put on any weight before he targets yellow in next year's TdF.Wout is afraid to race Evenepoel.
Damn.He is out due to covid
If Mollema achieves 10 in a row top tens it will be the biggest story of the race. Everything else will be a footnote.I don't know who will win, but I can guarantee that Mollema will be in the top ten.
Bahrain Victorious needs a new graphic designer. This scissor cut and paste magazine style is very tiresome now.No Landa as well. Seems everyone is afraid to race Remco.
its amazing how bad simon has been at san sebastian, considering it should suit him. I know adam won technically but again hasn't been seen really since the win in 2015.These lads have all seen Simon Yates in absolutely cracked form at the 1.1 Spanish races and decided not to embarrass themselves.
