No, if he wins the intermediary sprint tomorrow and Ackermann doesn't score, the difference will be 1 point in Ackermann's favour. Then Démare has to find two points on either a mountain top finish, the intermediary sprint on stage 20 which comes after a 20 km mountain or in the final TT which is just a bit too hilly for that to be realistic.RedheadDane said:It's mathematically impossible for Demare to reach him?
I agree with you but I'd add a healthy Gaviria as he's every bit as good as those other guys, he just needs to stop crashing.
That's very modest and not exactly true. Along with Groenewegen, Ewan, Bennett and Viviani he's among the current Top 5 of the world's best sprinters for me.
