I think this is what would have happened to Julian this race. Still a great performance, but when you have two hard stages and the peloton wants to race them hard, there's no chance for such types.
Exactly. Apart from some team tactics and probably Alaphilippe winning both stage 3 and 4, nothing much changes.

Think Ala might get dropped worse though
 
Hoping for a big ride from Schachattack at LBL. His form seems good and LBL should suit him much more than FW. The prospect of him, Jungels ... maybe Nibali, trying to go long is pretty mouthwatering.

Jungels isn't even starting.

He needs the optimum preperation to go for that elusive 12th place in Il Giro

Haha. I thought I'd seen him in PCS lists in the week ... but, in any case, Schachmann and Nibali would do :)

You have seen him there but it has long been known that he would not ride so I don't really know why they insisted on keeping him on the start list.
 
I still hope he skips California. I fear they are overracing him. Some rest now and then slow build up for Nationals, Dauphine and Tour. But they know him and his capabilities better than me so I just hope my fear isn't going to pan out.
 
Not yesterday. Fuglsang was too strong at the climb. At the top Schachmann was at the top10. Perhaps he could have attacked on the uncategorised part of the climb.
 
He is really going for it in every race :) His shape isn't really good anymore but he keeps attacking. He is not the guy for the big mountains. I think he could more likely win races like the Roonde because his attacks are powerful and he has a great time trial skill. I hope he doesn't target the big mountains and grand Tours. He should target the Worlds and rest a bit now for the second part of the season.
That is consistancy:

He will finally make his comeback in next week's Italian fall classics after his TT crash in the Tour.

A pity for him that that injury was so bad and required such a long rehab, otherwise he would have had a chance at Worlds.
