There used to be trains formations in front of the race. I feel it is safe to say we now live in times where trains will need to get form in the chasing groups. As using the tactics where you are not maxing out in a chase group. That will always result in the same outcome.

Congratulations for the win.

I was just in awe of his ride today. Amazing, we're still at the start of the season and we may already have the ride of the year. How can you even top that? I guess Remco will have to go solo with 75km to go to win Flanders now.

Just incredible. I still remember the first time I saw his name where he was 18 years old and finished quite high on an MTF in his home stage race. Sure, it was impressive as people didn't usually do that well at such a tender age. But that he in five years would win two Tours, two monuments and countless other races was not quite something I would have bet on back then.
I remember thinking “I can’t believe EF have just blown their chances of the Tour of California against this 19 year old UAE rider!”
 
He got the skills not just watts. Today he made the move in downhill on gravel and made quite some gap in 2-3 corners. I hope he takes the saying the best defense is attack for cobblestone stage in TdF and does some carnage.
That gravel descent where he made the difference was awe inspiring. Power married perfectly to technically elite skills
 
Yeah for sure as Sagan had about 5 different ways to win MSR yet never managed to get it done. The super cold edition stunningly won by Ciolek in the sprint is the one that most stands out as the one I simply could not comprehend his defeat,

2012 and 2017 were equally bad for me. But the first one was only Nibali's fault because he held a grudge to Sagan after him having snatched a stage win from Nibali in Chieti in T-A a week before, but then helped him to the overall win.

I think maybe that's why I have never come to like Nibali.

Yeah Nibali atttwcking but not managing to go solo screwed him over hugely. Cancellara always had a very underrated sprint at the end of longer races.
