Great win for Coquard - Far lesser riders than Coquard have won a WT race. Think if Ewan had a team he would have won two stages - The sprint stage 1 and they could have brought the five leaders back on stage 2.
Format is excellent.. Thought that the TT might be silly, but short distance and easy access made for a large crowd and definitely got the momentum started.. Time bonus format has teams covering everything and no run away winner.. So far it's excellent
