He's being criticized because of his pathetic attempts at pulling on the front when it was his turn and then his panicked, ill advised attack when he should have known that he could have been competitive against Sagan in a heads up sprint. All worthy of criticism.BigMac said:Yet again, the others were focused on making Sagan lose more than in winning themselves. That they allowed the pace to drop with 2k to go and risk being caught just so that Sagan would be taking the pull to the line proves it. Until Trentin attacked (for which he is being criticized) I was convinced hey were trying to tire Peter out so as to beat him in the sprint. Everyone in that group deserved this result but Matteo, I don't understand why he is being slagged.DFA123 said:Looked that way, but the others made it pretty easy for him in the end. No-one on his wheel with 300m to go is a bit of a major error from all four.portugal11 said:Sagan was by far the strongest
You can see why riders like Benoot and Rowe never actually win anything.
