Wasn't really Kruijswijk's best domestique in the Alps where it mattered most last year. Should probably get top 10 in the Giro.
Bennett crashed hard during the Galibier stage. Twice. Not sure what people expect from a guy that hits the deck as hard as he did.

You could also say that Jumbo were at least one mountain dom short. De Plus had to do all the work when Bennett wasn't fit enough to pull.

(Kruijswijk wasn't that great to begin with . He was lucky that most of the Galibier was soft pedalled, IMO, as he was not among the very best riders there. )

Whoops forgot about those crashes.

Fully agree on Kruijswijk. He's not GT winner material.
 
Beaten by Bond in the NZ TT and Archbold in the sprint at the NZ RR on a course that didn't really suit.

Shame really, because it would be phenomenal to see an NZ champs jersey at the pointy end of a GT.

On the bright side, his monstrous efforts at last years TDF have gotten him Giro leadership instead of another year of domestique duties.

If his rib issues really are solved I think Bennett can go top 5.
 
Reactions: 18-Valve. (pithy)
