I remember the first time I saw Morgado. It was the year 2020, in the Vuelta al Besaya U17. I predicted then and there that he would be the first rider ever to flop/dive during a race. Or, as we call it, make a schwalbe.
Of course. Another victory in a small race against fifth tier riders for Remco. Good to boost his big ego and the ego of his fans. Good for uneducated people to keep the "next Merckx" narrative going.

Well, he has now surpassed Ivan Ramiro Sosa in my book at least.
It would have been fitting with a more subtle celebration. Like, just stop your powermeter and roll over the line.
