Well, Cort is faster that Laporte on flat road, but he is terrible at positioning for bunch sprints, he always gets boxed out of position and loses wheels..... I simply don't think he is crazy enough, for those last 3K run ins for the big sprints.

So by "better" you mean positioning, you are right, but not on pure speed.
I'm not sure, Cort is necessarily faster on flat roads these days, but he most likely has the best potential of the two, if he did more specific training and improved his positioning skills/gained enough confidence to engage in the battles in the bunch. But if he did that, he wouldn't have the same climbing level, and then it wouldn't be a given, that he would win a lot more than he currently does. He should get a bucketload of podiums and additional top 5s and 10s though, and a Milano-Sanremo win would defiinitely also be easier to achieve.

He did beat Laporte in Paris-Nice, but that had more to do with him reading the finally perfectly rather than just being the fastest.

First it was Froome sharing his playlists, now it's you. Seems like Chrissy is really becoming a successful influencer

No, Kate Ryan cover for me, please. That would be like bringing Padun's mother to the Tour instead of him.

I will add Tour de France by Kraftwerk and Tour de France by Telex to the playlist as well as The Show Must Go On for when a favourite abandons.

It's always nice to see so much enthusiasm & popular support for the Tour in France (i.e. lots of people there to watch the team presentation).

Right, there is singing. Guessing it's the local dialect/language.
Old dude looks like he just randomly walked onto the stage.
This wouldn't be out of place at the Eurovision Song Contest...
None of them look like they've been snorting coke, so it's already better than Eurovision.
