I have to say that it is Gilbert's own fault that he lost the leadership role to GVA in his time for BMC. From 2012 to 2016 he just simply was not good enough. GVA was, indisputably, the better rider for all those seasons, so it was only fair that GVA got the chance on the cobbles.

I can imagine that team car. 'S**t, Gilbert the idiot has gone too hard and dropped everyone. If we tell him to sit up he won't listen anyway. Oh well; tell Tom he is plan A now!!'Vroome.exe said:So apparently his attack on Oude Kwaremont wasn't planned, he just got a gap and kept on going because there was a silence from his team on the radio. So the only way quickstep can win is by keeping quiet :lol:
Would be crazy to rest for Amstel and miss Roubaix on this form. He could win P-R in this form and, even if he could hold his form until Amstel, winning that again would be less than a podium at Roubaix imo.Max Rockatansky said:jens_attacks said:
That's his current calendar. But he already stated today and over the last days, that his goal is to win all five monuments. In that form, there should be no doubt, that he will line up for Roubaix next weekend.
I think he will skip the two semi classics.
