Great performance by Vlasov to sustain that attack. Let's see how he fares tomorrow, it should suit him.
Bagioli great as well, this shorter climbs are tailor made for him. And also a fantastic start to the season for Paret-Peintre. He had a solid year last year and seems to have taken another step. Good job by the AG2R development system.
Quickstep and their neo pros, a never ending success story. Granted, they get some of the most talented riders every year (money and prestige to sign for them) but they also get them to deliver again and again. Bagioli seems next in line.
