The run in was straight instead of the usual corner, so the riders could carry more momentum/speed into the climb. Of course Porte going hard rather early also helped.Apparently Hirschi climbed Mur de Huy in 2'47", fastest time since 2014.
It's always slightly below or slightly above 2'50" so not much difference but I didn't expect it.
It would be fitting.Hershey's should give him an endorsement...Swiss chocolate, except it's not Swiss...I can't reconcile it but I like the names. Bravo Marc! Woods was a little greedy but brave, he gave it a shot and it didn't pan out. Cosnefroy, no surprise, he's just missing that extra thing. Hopefully, it will come. Big win for another next gen rider.
Yes, Woods has become the Sep Vanmarcke of the Ardennes / muritos... would have liked to see him win as he probably won't be getting many better chances than this. While talking about missed opportunities, anyone knows what's up with Dylan Teuns? Did he just decide to take the season off after he signed a contract extension at the season reboot?Woods the nearly man. Like to see him win one. Uran decided to try something different. For someone out of form, a good ride by Dan Martin.
Is he? I did not realize, but two others have been banned (one recently) and I did not know why, and actually it would be nice to know. The current policy is to not say who and why anymore, but it's a bit frustrating if you don't know if someone will be back and everything. After all it's a bit like a real community, and if someone does not come to the meetings anymore you would usually like to know the circumstances?
