Sometimes even WvA doesn't speak sense.Amazing how his trainer still hasn't gotten that right. It's not the first time he misses out on his biggest seasonal goals due to bad timing and receding form.
He said his appendicitis before the Tour de France meant he lacked form & he couldn't climb like 2020. Result? He wins the Ventoux & two other stages.
He then said a month or so ago that he had decided not to chase the green jersey in the Tour after Roglic crashed out because he wanted to "saved energy" for the Olympics. Result? A silver medal in the road race & a tired performance in the TT. And in this worlds road race, he forced a narrative of "all for Wout"... with the consequences we saw.
It's not a good day for WvA.
