Amazing ride by Cancellara, be sorry to see him retire, maybe the TT WC as well?

Froome might be an amazing GC rider but that's it, he ain't no Hinault, ain't no Wiggins either

Dennis lost a maximum of 5s tbf, that bike change was very very smooth
Maybe if you only count the act of changing the bike. Slowing down and getting up to speed again lost more
He also got a brief rest. The act of changing bike literally cost him 2s
He first had to slow down, then changed his bike and then had to accelerate again. Moreover I think the change of rhythm also is a small disadvantage. Pretty sure it cost him at least 8 seconds.

Well done by Dumoulin. Silver with a broken wrist and 3 weeks of hampered preparation.

But looking at all the time gaps at the finish I really feel he lost gold with that crash in France...

Happy for second and third place. Cancellara really motored to victory today.
1/10.

Drink it in maaaannnnn... Canc is the best!
Looks like I am not the one drining here :D You are getting monothematic.
You have to agree that this was a nice send off from fabian. From easy wins like destroying the wheelsucker Stybar at strade bianchi, to great wins like burying Froome and Tom today...

Drink it in, maaaannnn
Why are you so agressive? :confused:
Me, aggressive? Why would I be?

It just feels great to watch great champions win, instead of sad wheelsuckers.

It's also why Dumoulin collapsed after congratulating Cancellara. I think he knows he could've gone better if 100%.
 
Well done to Fabian - surprised most except himself. A fitting end to his career.

Dumoulin did well considering he was carrying a broken wrist, but even if injury free I doubt that he would have bettered Fabian today.

Dennis died on that climb before the third time check, and possibly went out too fast as well. The mechanical merely cost him the Bronze.

Wheelsucking in time trial? Ok, I got it, you are just stupid.

You can win timetrials while being an wheelsucker in any other race. Imagine if Stybar wasn't so weak and could actually do something in TTs? He would fit the bill.

And Fab would destroy him easily. Again.

What a great win. Drink it in, maaaannn

It's not too much of a tragedy, even if Dumoulin is injured; he's 25 and will most likely have another two chances to get gold. Roglic is the great unknown in all this; I think he'll get bronze (and the climbs should advantage him, given his physique).
TT'ers don't dominate for 8 years, and rarely for more than 1 Olympic cycle. And this parcours is absolutely perfect for him. He'll likely never dominate the absolute flat TT's
Thought I might repost this. :D (but yes, it's hard to envisage a course as good as this one was for him.)

Fantastic Fabu!! He was not very lucky this spring, but this final TT victory is a excellent way to retire!
