Norway is notorious for having echelons on the weirdest places (e.g. the summit of Seljestadjuvet). Thibau and the dream of the bonifications is also still in play. If he isn't isolated again, he can win a stage.
Thibau climbed faster than everyone sans Tulett and Sheffield, remarkable. He's becoming such a weird rider - in a good way.
Promising results from Milesi and Vergallito (2022 Zwift Academy winner and great podcaster).
And nice to see Tobias Johannessen back at a decent level.
I think he has burnt some bridges with the Italian cycling environment but let's hope he can get a contract.Yeah, Vergallito has been surprising me. I honestly didn't have much expectations for him, of course he's not a Jay Vine (as Vine had already more than decent results in Aus before the pandemic) but I was expecting more last year from Bogna than this year from Vergallito.
He had already a great result in Flèche Ardennaise and today was decent as well. I don't think he is WT material or deserves a spot on the pro team just with what he shown this year, but after his initial contract ends, I think he could be a good addition to an italian pro conti team already with this level.
Gutted I missed that as was beginning to doubt if it would ever happen again!Ewan can still win! He beats Merlier in the Marcel Kint classic, or whatever it is called now.

Watching the replay it was noticeable that it was a very reduced bunch sprint. Hopefully this will help his confidence in bigger, more chaotic finishes, which is where he's been pretty terrible for a while now.

Really impressive to distance Onley by that much. He seemed to lose form when the racing left Spain earlier in the year, maybe he had a health issue? Then the ridiculous doping control. Such a shame he's missed so many .1 and Pro races that would have suited him. TDS next will be a big challenge, but we're in WT GC season now I suppose?First out of 2 decisive stages in Isère Tour today and we got a great race with the strongest battling it out. In the end Lennert Van Eetvelt dropped Onley, Martinelli, Kulset and Graat and went solo. He only has 1 teammate (and that one can't climb) to control tomorrow, but he seems the strongest in the race. Great comeback after the AFLD bullying him.
Van Eetvelt completely destroyed the rest in the last 7km.

Thanks a lot for that. So unfortunate as he could have had a great season already. Will be a lot tougher now and of course, not the optimal scenario for Lotto gaining points, pfft.He crashed a lot, had an injury then was pretty good in Catalunya for having only trained 100% for a lil over a week. He missed his first 2 big goals (Liege and Romandie) because of the AFLD bullying him.
Yeah apart from Mercan Tour Tuesday (and he will probably be a bit tired) and Argau he'll only ride WT races this year. Maybe a minor race after Vuelta if he has something left.

Not really reduced just half the peloton not trying in the end anymore. Also apart from QS and Intermarché this field was really low level. Doesn't matter tho. He beats Merlier and Thijssen Ewan style, this will definitely give a lot of confidence.
