Lesser known races 2024 edition

Look, it can never match Zabel or Alaphilippe if it happens in a smaller race, but in terms of fashion of celebrating too early/late, very little has this beat. This is up there with the masterpiece below:
So in the Tour of Hellas this just happened:

Second placed Edu Prades thought he had won and started celebrating while his saddle broke off. Instant karma?

The pictures are priceless.

In Alpes-Maritimes an interesting break just went up the road

Pretty impressive from De Schuyteneer, 18 years old.

Some bigger teams have the wrong guys in it tho so I doubt it sticks. Don't think they'll work together perfectly. Peloton is not chasing tho. 1'30 gap already.

EDIT: it's a weird situation. Front group not working together at all cause no one feels confident in that group and in peloton only a conti team is working.

De Schuyteneer is solo now. Costiou behind that and he is dangerous so my guess is teams like FDJ, AG2R and UNO X will start chasing soon.
