If you're born in Denmark, you have two career options: become a successful cyclist, or act in a crime drama series.Seeing today's results and considering how well Danish riders have been going lately just makes it even more weird to think that in the entire history of cycling, there has only been one Dane who has won a GT ITT - Ole Ritter, more than 50 years ago.
Edit: Sorry, that's actually not true. Jørgen Marcussen also won an ITT in 1980 Giro.
Wtf are you talking about?What a performance by Bjorg, especially the second half was superb. Other UAE guys also flying. Vingegaard beat other GC guys comfortably but time will tell if he can stay with the best men in the mountains. He's looking rather thin so who knows, maybe...
The pilot has basically already been written. Jens Adams, a Belgian cyclocrosser, had his three cyclocross bikes stolen from the trunk of his car in February. Later he was contacted by a Russian cyclocross fan, who had found his personalized bike on the local Ebay, and wondered if this was legal. Stick in a murder or two and you're good to go.No doubt a cycling detective series is in development..............
I think he will go full gas on the last 6 km of croix de fer to test his legs. On friday and sunday he will just follow wheels.Mas still ahead of Ciccone and Landa...
I feel like Jumbo Visma won't show their cards before the Tour and Jonas will mainly just follow wheels and sprint for the stage win.
Climbers just bleeding time today.
Should feel really, really lucky about the Tour route, even though they will still get spanked even though its shorter and basically a MTT
Yeah they will since they are racing against better climbers and better time trialists (Pog and Vinge)This is the most climber friendly Tour in years with the poor man's TT (that has two climbs). They won't even get spanked on those 14 km of less favourable terrain.
Chaves the 2nd best EF rider today, lol. No idea what has happened to Piccolo, he used to be a really good TTer. 3rd in the Innsbruck WC junior ITT when the one year older Evenepoel crushed everyone and he usually had Tiberi's number in the TTs, Harrrogate being the outliner.You know when Bernal and Carapaz are going bad when Chaves beats them at the TT. Lol.
I think it’s more punchy climber friendly and even hilly, not pure climber. Roglic would’ve had a better chance in this than any of his previous Tours probably.This is the most climber friendly Tour in years with the poor man's TT (that has two climbs). They won't even get spanked on those 14 km of less favourable terrain.
