I think he'd probably settle for Gilbert's 2012 palmar?s.Panda Claws said:Reminds me of Philippe Gilbert in 2012 a little bit, which is not a good sign.
He is not that bad though so he might still make it back. He is not finished, I think.
hopefully riis will teach him some tactics by then too. He's not in cannondale any more, he could try relying on his team.?While it would have been better tactically for Peter, if he had waited, it provided him with the opportunity to test his shape and to give his legs a proper beating. The most important is that he?s peaking at the Classics, but he?ll also get several chances at Tirreno-Adriatico?
You should recall that Gilbert had an absolutely awful 2012 until the Vuelta, especially early on.scholar said:I think he'd probably settle for Gilbert's 2012 palmar?s.
(Unless you mean it's a bad sign that Sagan might be on-course to win the WCRR, in which case my irrational dislike of him would agree with you.)
That is great, but I was comparing his season up until now to Gilbert's 2012 season up until this time of year.scholar said:I do, of course. My point was that his season wasn't without redemption.
I couldn't agree more. He should have used his team more. Right on the gravel when he started attacking, he still got 3 TS around him. He should have just waited and gauge his form. Because after that he started fading, and roman ended up finishing 11th? Sagan to me is a pure, sheer, brute raw power. He is very very strong but he lack of venesh tactical mastery. He is still very young, I hope under Riis he is honing his tactical sense.tomorrow said:hopefully riis will teach him some tactics by then too.

I thought that was clear, because on a forum like this everyone is aware of the last xx World Champions.
lol @ you thinking radio's make that much difference. you obviously never raced on a bike with a radio inJancouver said:Riis could not help him much at Strade as it was not a WT event, therefore no race radios. I think he will do better in races where Bjarne can watch live TV and use the Radio to provide instant guidance. JMHO
well, he's not in top shape, that's true, but as I said earlier, he was on anthibitiotics in oman racing in 40 degree celsius and higher, so it's understandable. This definataly at least slowed his shape getting better, if not sent him back. Hopefully, he will get there, but noones knows if whole season is not at risk, or more.SeriousSam said:Talk about tactics is all fine and good but Sagan was nowhere near good enough to contest for the win even with the world's best tactics.
Unlike the stone age when you were a pro hearing nothing but a static noise in your radio, technology has evolved and race radios do make a huge difference these days as the DS has a live TV in the car, cell phone, internet, HR, power etc available.Ryo Hazuki said:lol @ you thinking radio's make that much difference. you obviously never raced on a bike with a radio in
