Anyone able to compare to this shorter effort by Roglic, G, and TGH?
In the Dauphine TT last year, he lost to Ethan Hayter, Mattia Cattaneo and Luke Durbridge, but still managed to find a decent level in time for the Tour.Nobody saw Paris Nice?
Vingegaard literally only trained for 8-12 minute climbs this entire season. TT was >30 minutes and he lost to Mikkel frigging Bjerg.
If anyone is wondering why Vingegaard was emotional yesterday:
Danish newspaper B.T. writes today, that his wife and child is in Annecy currently (they stay there often), and the playground that got attacked is one they frequent almost daily, they just randomly decided not to go yesterday
I really don't think so. Besides jumbo being the best team in terms of training, Vingegaard already showed this type of performance on last year's dauphine. He is not yeat on peak shape, and clearly he wasn't full gas on croix fer, even if he won the stage.
Because he wanted to win the stage and seal up race, but without going full gas if possible. He has his training numbers to look at. That said, I don't think he was soft pedalling.BS, why would the team launch him if he‘s not even going to go full gas, he‘s got to test himself before the Tour.
So by how much would he have won if he had gone full gas? He gained over 40 seconds on second place in 15 minutes.Because he wanted to win the stage and seal up race, but without going full gas if possible. He has his training numbers to look at. That said, I don't think he was soft pedalling.
