You have a thing for Italian semi sprinters though. The kind that turns out being better at doing other things compared to sprinting.For the record: there is honestly nothing sarcastic about this thread on my part if there was doubt about it.
Haller too.Colbrelli doesnt really have a leadout or many guys to help him. Only Mohoric. And even though Mohoric is Mohoric. Can’t compete with other teams in terms of getting into position. Probably has to spend a lot of energy on his own. And he was caught up in one of the stages with Roglic.
He might have more luck in the coming weeks with some sprinters leaving the race. Less hectic. Not that many teams interested or involved.
Didn't he ride on front and made quite the selection on one of the last climb in one stage in last year Tour, when Bahrain wanted to set up Landa (it failed ofcourse)?Back to Colbrelli: he was always a decent climber but he's been on a whole different level since last year's Tour de France. He wasn't as visible as he's been yesterday because he was always used as a helper for Landa but I remember him being in some very selected groups in a couple mountain stages.
Just a hunch, but I think Bahrain's training methods improve endurance and climbing but don't have much impact on sprinting.I thought with his form Colbrelli would go closer in the flat sprint finishes rather than do something like this.
Instead he is doiing worse in bunch sprints (5th, 11th and 11th) and this in the mountains. Bizarre.
It will be very hard to beat Cavendish for green with 50pts available for stage wins and Colbrelli taking results like that.
Not only he made it over Madeleine. He was at the front of the group pushing the tempo on the climb for Landa until there were about 30 riders left in the yellow jersey group. Then it was Damiano Caruso who took over, if I remember correctly.Yes, I think he made it over Madeleine on the way to Loze.
No he didn't, he was glued on Evenepoel's wheel at >30 km/h, so he didn't have to match his numbers.Evenepoel did +/-7w/kg during that last climb, 426W over 6m13s. That means Colbrelli had to match that, considering he stayed in Evenepoel's wheel the whole time. That means Colbrelli pushed 515W for 6m13s on the last climb on average.
That's true. At approximately 34km/h behind a rider with an incredibly low CdA he would still have some aero advantage. Whether it matters at all when pointing out how insane the effort was for a rider of his type, is a different matter of course. But he didn't have to match his numbers.No he didn't, he was glued on Evenepoel's wheel at >30 km/h, so he didn't have to match his numbers.
