I dont do angry, just putting a little emphasis on things.Dr. Maserati said:What are you so angry about?
Seriously, get some perspective - and he certainly did not dominate today.
It was a 1 km climb to the finish.
I never said the races were weak - however they are early season events, not too long and not much climbing.
If these races were so prestigious why are the big names not there?
Of course these races are important to the French - but I certainly dont think either event is as big a step up as some make it.
Obviously our versions of domination vary considerably. Splitting the peloton by attacking, then looking around as if nothing happened and trading little attacks with other riders. Then on the final climp, putting 20 seconds into everyone in 1km except Hivert is domination in my book on top of being the strongest rider yesterday.
I never said these races were prestigious for the top riders but prestigious enough that good riders have always won them.
