Looks like they want to have the same finish time every day and minimise overlap with the weekend races in BelgiumWhy did they have the stage finishing so early? Without any other race today, it would be a good opportunity to showcase this stage.
It's a bummer because was ready for an hour of live cycling and when I'm ready to tune up I see it's already finished.
To be fair, he was 11th in the mountaintop finish in the Tour de la Provence two weeks ago, so there were signs of better shape already.Lol, Rubén Fernández suddenly showing signs of life on the same hill where he put in one of the most random performances of recent GT history by beating all the favourites (Valverde, Froome and Chaves were closest to him) and getting the red jersey back in 2016.
That's why I wrote a Yates (not A as Adam). Whoever of the two is in peak form at the time. We rarely see both of them in peak shape at the same race lately, but Adam is more consistent in the last few seasons.Maybe also Simon Yates in peak shape, but that's about it.
I'm not sure anybody could follow him on a wall like this, maybe only Pog and Rog. Rusty Woods is a heir of Joaqium "Purito" Rodriguez.I can think of just a few riders who can rival him on these short and steep climbs nowadays. Pogi, Rogla, February Quintana and a Yates. If it's less than 2km we can add Alaphilippe.
