Whenever I drink a beer-soda once in a few months, my son starts to act like I'm an alcoholic. I would stick to coffee, but since I kind of blew up my coffee machine yesterday, I'll drink a lot of peppermint tea to this beer race. :joycat: Yeah, I'm cool.
 
ELB messed up before the Cauberg. She made her teammates work but was so far behind and had to overtake a lot of riders.
I think if she was on AVV's wheel when the Cauberg started she would've dropped them all.
 
Well done Marianne. Cheers.

Jeers to the two who should have had it between them. Gutless!
My hypothesis is that since these are two of the women who contest the 'worst sprinter in the péloton' title (Kasia has improved, but Elisa resolutely remains the kind of rider who can only win solo), they were so worried about proving themselves worse by losing to the other that they would rather come nowhere in the bunch and not suffer the ignominy.

Either that or she took Domenico Pozzovivo's advanced course in how to finish 7th in a 3 man sprint from the Cycling Classes With The Pros thread.
