Well, Worlds is Worlds. It's not a normal sprint. The distance and attrition of the race changes everything from pure speed, to how much is left in the tank, with no lead out trains. It's every man for himself in a final battle of attrition, which Sagan personifies. Cav's win in MSR was even more exceptional as a result, because la Primavera isn't a race for pure sprinters, but the fast men with great resistance like in fact Sagan. Although, yes, Sagan's victory over Cav was noteworthy, but almost expected, because it was like a MSR sprint, even if Cav got that one. By contrast in a normal stage race field sprint, where the distance is 50-60-70 km less, Cav likely wins over him 10 times out of 10 in a two-up match of top end speed. Not being a pure sprinter, Van Aert's Champs-Élysées victory was thus just as sensational as Cav's in MSR imho.Does it count when he beats that same Cavendish at the biggest race pure sprinter could ever win?
