Yeah, he's gonna wear it, but he's not actually gonna have it!
you are so smart, arent you?
It was pretty obvious - at least to me - that "expect him in" meant in the sense of actually owning it.

Sagan is still good but a bit too heavy for these finishes.

Matthews and GVA tend to have an edge on him. But "Retro Sagan" would have smoked them both.
Well, with Bling in thise form, the green might not be sewn up already and we get some battle for the green at least until the 3rd week. But Bling will have to follow sagan into every break, which I am not sure he can do day after day.

I suspect Sagan will wear him down but it is fun to hope Matthew's will fight with him to Paris, with his additional training for supporting Tom D he might be able to out climb Sagan even and get some unexpected points

Really happy to have Mathews back in this form, battle for green might be good. Sagan will definitely collect a couple of wins, today was very hard, not a sprinter in sight last 30k, he will get it:)

His sprint today makes me so even more annoyed that he lost in Milan-Sanremo.
I think it makes it more likely that his Performance or lack thereof was to blame on weightloss due to illness/late effects of TdF-crash/whatever (not to Take anything away from Alas amazing Performance there) rather then Motivation/decline, which is of course a great sign. Although it ist a Bit frustrating, agreed.

I will just leave it here for posterity:

Little statistics for Peter Sagan

Tour De France

134 stages - 2012 to 2019 (5 stages so far)

120 stages in total excluding TTT or ITT

12 wins = 10%
44 podiums (TOP 3) = 36.6%
70 Top 10s = 58.3%

Top 10 in more than half of stages and on podium every 3rd stage. In TdF.

Phenomenal.

Life statistic

862 race days (-73 TTs)

113 wins = 14.3%
443 Top 10s = 56.1%

Top 10 in more than half of his race days in 9 seasons and still going...

One of a kind.

Phenomenal numbers, one of a kind indeed.

I'm curious what would be Valverde's numbers? He has a ton of podiums and top 10 places also...
 
Nice stats above. Thanks for bringing.

Congrats to Peter. It looks that I have to stop watching cycling completely or at least live.
Anytime I am watching he is loosing. Yesterday I skipped he won. :lol:

It remains me my fanboyism experiences from autumn 2013-summer 2015 when I was traveling across all of Europe to see him live and to see hem losing. :sad: Firenze, MSR, Ronde, PR, TDF; Ponferrada.

I almost bought the ticket to Richmond. :D . He was quite lucky I did not go.

EDIT. He was even able to lose the sprint against Stibar in Nationals when I was there.

Same for me, however if you mean the national in Slavkov, it can hardly be considered a sprint. They next to each other both winning their part of the nationals.

I feel for you :D I have very similar experience when I visit away matches of our national football team or hockey WC games :) And when I place a bet on Sagan he never wins. Yesterday, I did not.
