So far Groenewegen wasnt able to keep up in the cobbled races, except in kuurne this year. That was a doomed to be a sprint day though.shalgo said:Groenewegen won the Ronde van Vlaanderen Beloften in 2014, beating, among others, Benoot, so I think it is fair to believe that Groenewegen, like Greipel, could be decent in the cobbled classics.Mayomaniac said:Greipel also sucks on the longer climbs in MSR, but does pretty well on the Belgian cobbles, maybe you could compare him to him.Dekker_Tifosi said:Groenwegen is definitely more like Kittel. He's too bulky to get over hills comfortably. At least, the longer ones.
He did pretty well in some other Belgian semi-classics. So as long as the hill is short enough he can get over them.
PN type of climbs are already too tough so no chance he gets over the Poggio.
