Yep, the manner of the victory in his 5th race day back after such a serious injury is incredible. It had a bit of everything: explosivity on the climb, fearless descending, a 40 minute threshold effort at the end and a fast sprint. Looks like he's just picked up at the start of the season as if the injury never happened.Carols said:Really nice win today, He's Back! He attacked with 34km to go and took it to the line with Lulu and Birdsong, easily winning the sprint.
Tomorrow he'll lose time in the TTT but could still win the GC with a good ride on the MTF.
Even if he doesn't win he GC, getting his first victory after that horrible accident is a Huge Success!
