Well he was 5th. Which, for a flat crit race like this is not a bad result for him I think.
I don't know. He seldom wins like Evenepoel did, with minutes. He couldn't come back from a crash, lose 2 minutes and finish solo like Evenepoel did imho. On the other hand, he's a year and a half younger than Remco was. If not this year, maybe next?Can he do an Evenepoel and win both the road race and the worlds ITT?
Can he? Sure. Will he? Small chance. These boys are all a year older than him and Brenner's had a long season. Furthermore, the opposition is brutal and this generation is really good. Quinn Simmons is in tremendous form and Finn Fisher-Black is out for revenge after he had to cancel his worlds on the track. We're at a point where the likes of Piccolo, Tiberi and Carlos Rodriguez aren't even being discussed and those boys can fly with anyone on their day.Can he do an Evenepoel and win both the road race and the worlds ITT?
