everyone knows that... he didnt:D
well, it's true that everyone thinks that but only sagan knows it himself. Nevertheless, what a start to season by Moser. In his first race, he's got 40% of the sagan's win, in the second, he wins strade bianche with let's say, 40 % caused by everybody afraid of sagan and 10% chance sagan letting him win. These two could simply ride whole spring a divide the wins themselves :)

I wish that this race could somewhat be elevated in prestige to almost the level of the top classics because it really deserves to be up there. It's an amazing race. Just imagine the carnage if it happens to rain during this race....

honestly cancellara needs to leave this team at the end of the season. He was completely isolated with no one to go with moser. his accelerations show that he was on form and he was basically the whole chasing group's domestique bridging the gap to moser. Sagan's marking is going to be a bit pathetic if all he's going to do is follow cancellara then out sprint him for the rest of the classics.
If that's all he needs to do it's the right thing.

The pressure is on Cancellara to do some strategising, if he's capable of that.

Moreno Moser going to win!

1. Moreno Moser
2. Peter Sagan
3. Nocentini
I saw Thomas Dekker today!

Slagter needs to grow bigger balls, he's quite strong but his positioning in the peloton sucks.

Only saw the last hour. Textbook, as we say in England.

Hard to say who was more impressive. Moser in his second race of the season. Or a poorly sagan, controlling the chasers and then leaving them for dead.

Back to the drawing board for a lot of the other teams after today?
Radioshack for sure has to go back to the drawing board, I don't even know what their tactics were in this race.

Yep, Dekker forfilled my wish of seeing him finish in a good group. He lasted very long. Which is amazing considering his lack of riding in front and awful steering capabilities.

Slagter was just tired if you saw him crawl up the last climb

Radioshack sponsorship is over this year so he and everyone else is going to leave ...

I really doubt this team will find another sponsor unless Trek can pick up the bill.

Cancellara the strongest
Sagan the fastest
Moser the luckiest

He needs to have some allies then. But honestly I don't see it happening, as for now he was indeed the chasing group's best domestique.

what do you mean do some strategising?? his team was completely invisible. what is he supposed to do about that? sagan was glued onto his wheel so if he did attack then he would be dragging sagan for the win. he could have caught moser in the finale but he was the lone chaser in the final kms and did too much work. He desperately needs to find a new team. Saxobank.

he seems to be every team's domestique whatever he races. All other teams need to do is follow him, send one of their own riders up the front whilst he chases all by himself. such a shame for a rider of his caliber not to have a single useful team mate.

So Sagan's gonna win MSR and RVV and Moser LBL and GdL. Now Cannondale only need one for PR ;)
