Paris Roubaix up next. Bit harder to control.
Is he gonna do the AGR after that?
I'll be shocked if Sagan podiums at PR. He doesn't have the endurance of the likes of Canc, but also guys like Terpstra, whereas RVV is more about multiple explosive efforts
Important to remember that while Sagan has ridden RVV every season since 2011, he has ridden PR only three times, coming 86th, 6th and 23rd. On which note, I hope he finally makes his LBL debut just to see what happens.
And when he has won LBL, why not win Lombardia as well? Sagan is probably the only one who has a realistic shot at winning all the monuments. He should definitely try that! And just to prepare for those races, he might as well ride AGR. I can't see why he shouldn't be the favourite there
Sagan is capable of all 5 along with, I'd say: Valverde, Thomas, Cancellara, Gallopin, GVA, Kwiatkowski, Gilbert, Nibali, Benoot. Obviously some have missed the boat, or are yet to develop fully, but have shown they have the tools to win all the races at some point in their careers. Relatedly, if one could devise a fair competition to decide the best all-round cyclist in the world, Sagan would probably win right now, and the others I listed would be close.
Edit: and EBH
