A pre-emotive move getting out in front and using his Rouleur/TT skills to ride hard in front then have some room to ride his own rhythm on Mikuni sounds very plausible as a strategy.I doubt that everyone will be happy to ride to Mikuni together. For me it is even not impossible that Van Aert can go before Mikuni if there is a right group and the race was selective enough to limit the number of people capable of chasing.
No race radios. I predict someone will raise his hands, only to discover he was actually secondDoes anyone know if race radios will be used?
If I recall correctly they weren't able to be used in Rio?
If not then I think it could make a big difference. In combination with small teams and the profile of the course, it could mean the winning move comes 100km or more out.
I couldn't figure out who the last rider was. I thought at first it was Louis Meintjes in a slovenian kit, pushing his super ninja skills to the next level.Pogacar, Roglic, Tratnik, Polanc and the only womens team member Eugenija Bujak.
RwandaPretty much all of these kits are either awful in design or at least awful to recognize. Slovenia is the exception, Belgium is also a lot better now that Colombia have decided not to mimic them, I mean, plain, and I will never get what they are doing with this blue, but at least it's recognizable.
Now just don't tell me the Dutch team have a white jersey with an orange stripe in the middle...
Does anyone have some nice kit pics, maybe of Eritrea or New Zealand? I usually like the US ones as well.
