Arkea continued their season of riding for points in the final of Vendee - It started in KBK and has continued for the whole season.
Walscheid just said in the interview afterwards that Nizzolo told him before the race that it's a messy fight for position and he should watch out not to get boxed in hence he stayed a lot at the front and opened deliberately very early with 300m to go.What a weird sprint.
Walscheid and Einhorn in the top 4...
saw that interview with Walscheid as well. Interesting that Nizzolo gives recommendations to Walscheid, while his own sprinter started the sprint from way behind instead
This, the guy was pushing absurd wattages already in the u23 ranks (over 1.300W for 25sec in the German u23 NC after 180km back in 2014), gives a super draft and has the size and ability to hold and defend a good position. He is the potential top leadout man for the coming years.Well Walscheid is pretty goated at placing himself because of his huge body. He's gotten himself a ton of points by doing that. Still don't get how he's not getting used by some teams to leadout a topsprinter.
not sure the peloton will get organized again. Mainly poor teams missed the move
