Lol. I understand protecting a rider you're a fan of, but he was on Valverde's wheel after the descent and then just stopped riding, looking at Fuglsang. That is very much a fatal error that could've been prevented and it cost him.He didn't choke...he rode hard closing gaps and made a big attack. It's called using yourself up.
This doesn't make sense. He was the still very strong. And if you want to take tactics and strategy out of cycling what is left for us? a VO2 max race? come on, he is a deserving winner.Joke and a farce. Sucks when the others let a rider like this win. Mollema should've finished 7th or 9th or something as usual. He ruined this race. Joke.
what a bunch of crapA watershed moment for Roglic. He doesn't have the endurance to win a race as hard as this or a GT with a proper route. Valverde blows it again. Mollema gets the big win of his career, fantastic. I'm not a fan of his, but he really deserves this. Nobody tries harder than Bauke.
Bernal after the race: "Mollema was the strongest". Valverde after the race "We saw the right winner"You're talking *** guys, okay TGBM wasn't marked hard, but he rode mightily strong.
Yeah I guess Valverde was the strongest, but we're used to his 2nd places by now.
