Wellens is gapped big time, he's not catching up.
Meeeh has nothing to do with it. Wellens has been kinda mediocre all year. He just doesnt have the legs. I like that he tried tho. What he did was the only way he couldve possible won the GC.Red Rick said:

Today's stage has decent length and has far harder climbs that suit an "explosive" rider such as Wellens far better .

Wellens shouldve closed that last 10meters when Philipsen tried to bridge to Evenepoel and Campenaerts instead of playing the Campenaerts card.
Not sure it was a huge mistake, though. Wellens should be able to deal with Evenepoel and QS, IMO. Would be almost embarrassing if he didn't win today's stage by a minute or more in this field. Wellens obviously has the form
You have to be ****ing kidding me if you think Evenepoel will own Wellens here. Not. Gonna. Happen.
I watched yesterday and hadn't even realised the leader's jersey was blueRedheadDane said:Am I the only one finding it a bit difficult to differentiate between the blue leader's jersey, and the blue DQ jerseys in Tour of Belgium?
