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.Wasn't really Kruijswijk's best domestique in the Alps where it mattered most last year. Should probably get top 10 in the Giro.
Whoops forgot about those crashes.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. )
No, a guy who can lead the Giro with three minutes to number two, two days before the end of the race and only loses due to a crash clearly has no chance of winning Grand Tours.Whoops forgot about those crashes.
Fully agree on Kruijswijk. He's not GT winner material.
