He had already really good results in the spring last year before the tour, so I don´t think that he will become a 3-week wonder.I kind of like him, it will be interesting if he can back up what he did in the Tour last year to races this year. It reminds me a little of what TGH did in the Giro, hopefully it isn't a one off and can continue his progression to leadership.
It's hard to say how much he lost because of it or whether it affected him the next day(s) as well. It definitely wasn't the reason why he didn't win the race, nor was the fact that he had to wait for Roglic on stage 3. But it could possibly have created more suspense if he had been closer to Pogacar before the Ventoux stage. Perhaps JV had asked Van Aert to drop back then.Fair enough (and not very impressive of me to have forgotten that completely, I guess I wasn't particularly incested in his GC bid at the time) but do people think that was the main reason that he lost all that time on the day?
I certainly don't think it helped him.Fair enough (and not very impressive of me to have forgotten that completely, I guess I wasn't particularly incested in his GC bid at the time) but do people think that was the main reason that he lost all that time on the day?
You don't have to feel so bad. I mean there are posters on here who can't remember which threads they've visited just a few hours later...
