Sorry I wasn't clear. Yes I was referring to his in-form shape at time being.Do what once again? He's never won Il Lombardia, or you mean that you hope he just wins once again like a week ago?

(so no, I'm not apart of the "hope he wins Le Tour AGAIN" hord or similar for Il Lombardia )
Kind of the opposite of Carapaz. If he wanted to win Lombardia, he should have stuck to the shadows. Now everyone remembers that he's a threat. But I guess he got some decent UCI points with that 2nd.I picked Pog but would be happy if Roglic won. On Pog he seemed strangely quiet in the latter stages of Tre Valli Varesine. I think Pog might have been saving his legs for Lombardia?
Who is going to go to all that bother? Way too much hassle and we don’t need it. Ppl can post their attacks and gloating here. Contrast the showboating of ppl if their favourite rider wins with all the posts where they trashed Lombardia as the “worst of the monuments” and you’ve got what we call the forum.This is just the poll thread. I'm sure a race thread will be opened before Saturday.
Also not a very good OP. I don't know how good an idea it is to open a thread for the race that early.
Maybe there should be general threads for each monument and then a specific thread for each edition as there are now.
I’m a little more skeptical about Pog than usual this year. Might stay on the hype train with Roglic.
Pog used alot more energy compared to Rog in Giro dell'Emillia on the last lap and especially on last San Luca climb. Rog did his one shot of which the finish suits him excellent.Pog didn't show spectacular form in the races leading to his Lombardy victories. He was decent recently but will peak for one-day, like he did before (not only in Lombardy but also in WC or even Flandres).
