Yeah but at season start everyone is in worse shape - the Tour is a different animal, everyone is in peak condition.
And yes, the stages in Bretagne can create havoc, especially if the weather is bad.
It's no secret Roglic has a history of fading at the end of a grand tour, and he also a history of being dominant straight out of training camps.
I expect peak Roglic this summer (notwithstanding crashes etc. & other stuff which is out of his control).
Me: I don't think this is for the real sprinters, I think Colbrelli, Aranburu, Valverde.
Brian Holm: We are going for Jakobsen!(?)
Colbrelli wins in front of Aranburu and McNulty.
What? Did they do a smokescreen or totally misjudge the final?
