Not really in trouble but also never at the front of the race.Was he not in trouble already 1-2 times before he got dropped?
Any news about his programme for next year? Would be interesting to see now what he can do in Paris-Nice, Catalunya or Romandie.
DQS will have to figure out why he couldn't roll with first group here. I'm not sure I'd buy he has endurance issues, so I find it likelier he's just tired after being in good form for a month or two now or that the climbing was too much for Evenepoel in his current state.
The weird part would be to see how much better Evenepoel seems to do at repeated 5 minute climbing efforts than repeated 20 minute climbing efforts.
But he's far from the only one to disappoint yesterday.
