The birds decided that Mollema was no longer a challenge and they plan to resume attacks on Monday with postmen and dog walkers. The footage of the attacks will be interspersed with footage of beaches, rock pools,lighthouses and bridges..........
According to Skjelmose, they were given the wrong time gaps, thus thinking they had more time to play with.Congrats to Evenepoel, my alarm awoke me with 8k’s to go to see him out front, so I went back to sleep, thinking that group of 5 would take the medals. I need to watch the tactical idiocy, as it sounded pretty extreme.
It was strange at times, probably because of no radios. I suspect that the peloton weren't aware Evenepoel had bridged to the lead group for a fair while, and reacted way too late.Congrats to Evenepoel, my alarm awoke me with 8k’s to go to see him out front, so I went back to sleep, thinking that group of 5 would take the medals.

I Lol'edA lot of respect for woman and their career choices, but Oumi should be just used as breeding bunny now with Remco's genes.
Not surprisingly at all, but he actually was the first of the Belgian team to congratulate remco but Aussie tv didn't catch it.Wout not going to Remco to congratulate him was poor sportsmanship.
Kind of the same here; got in from work at 1am and watched the first three hours til I fell asleep and just finished it now.Just watched the last 100 k on delay, avoided spoilers. MvdP's shenanigans aside, as soon as I saw that Remco had made the attacking group I figured it was all over. Chapeau to the little guy, what a leap he's made this year. Tactically he's actually pretty damn good.
Hehe, I LOVE stories like these!The most bizarre thing I saw was Eenckhorn attacking over the top of the chase group, get a 25-30m gap then immediately sit up
I think they all felt that Skjelmose was the fastest in a sprint, and the final result confirms that. So it was Skjelmose who was the biggest loser here. If he had pulled for 500 meters more, he would still have had a decent chance of a medal.No idea if getting the wrong gaps is the main reason for it, but Sjkelmose, Rota and Schmid still blew the chance to fight it out for the 2 remaining medals in a pretty even fight (it's not like one of them is clearly faster than the rest/one of them has no chance in a sprint). Remco was gone and the rest of their teams would have been fighting for minor placings anyway.
