Yes, Stybar used to be quite punchy in his day. When he was still a CX rider, the other guys (Nys, Boom, Albert...) always had to drop him because they would all get beaten in the sprint. Of course, that's against a select few riders, but CX riders are usually quite punchy due to the nature of the sport. I also remember Stybar winning some uphill sprints and he beat Van Aert in E3, even though Van Aert had been working and he could sit in the back since Jungels was up ahead, still not everybody can beat Van Aert even if he had to do more work.Was Stybar really a favourite there? He isn't that fast.
Of course that's easy to say now.
'Sam Watson' looks like he's still in high school
These English talents coming through are like when you leave championship manager running for 10 seasons and it just starts generating random names
I remember when we only had Millar who I didn't even like and wasn't even English.
still good to see him coming back in shape after a longer break due to covid and so on. If he was a bit closer to his best, he probably would have finished it off in Poland and won the stage, and now another good showing yesterday.Stybar says he got a cramp in the final 50 meters.
Nobody interested in making a Tour de l'Ain thread i guess. First stage finished, Cavagna got overrun by the peloton 50 meters from the finish. Stewart won.
Still got time though to hop over to the Denmark for the WWT Tour of Scandinavia!Those bloody organisers have scheduled them to be finished far too early!
I'm considering starting a little big of lobby work to convince the riders to go really slow tomorrow and Thursday.
