Well, Hagen already made sure to take DD out of this.
I just think Red Rick thinks the French one day races are shitsmall races like Cav used to call them.

Edit: Maybe not Paris-Roubaix.
I'd rather win the Tro-Bro-Léon, GP Marseillaise or the Tour du Finistre over a stage in the tour of turkey or in the UAE tour.
I think there are just too many good riders in the UAE Tour for me to agree with that.
Oh there are good riders, but those races have a history and a crowd.
I'd rather win a race filled with the best riders over one against a primarily middling, one-nation field, but I do understand how others might feel differently.

This. And I think it's a great thing that famous riders like Bardet and Pinot honor these smaller races. That's what keeps them alive, as they are usually organized and financed by enthusiastic local volunteers, and not by autocratic regimes. I have far more respect for riders doing 1.1 races as for those riding in Dubai or for Bahrain.
I simultaneously and entirely sincerely believe that little French races with terrible fields represent the priceless history and grassroots culture of our sport and an almost embarrassingly easy opportunity for a small number of good level riders, particularly third tier sprinters, to pad their palmares with no meaningful competition. It’s the Madiot-Cavendish dialectic.

I have a slight feeling that Sky will be out of this quite soon.

I like how each number of wins between 2 and 6 has been achieved by exactly one team.

Dimension Data must be having an historically terrible year.
It's not much worse than last year at this point. It was only in the Vuelta that Ben King saved their year.

Actually, they have only won 6 times on the WorldTour since the 2016 Tour, where they won 5 stages!
 
What's the worst about Dimension Data is not that they're not winning but that they're nowhere to be seen in most of the races.and even putting a rider inside top20 of any race overall already seems like an above-average result for them this year.

I can't remember a WT team performing this bad.
