Arkea having a fine start to the season. They have a collection of very talented leaders who all have had a rough period in their careers and all feel like they have a point to prove. If that goes right - and so far it is - a team can create a very good, us against the world, atmosphere.
Nice to see him this strong again. He did not seem to slow down which is the important thing about his win.
Nice to see the team working for him. Including Barguil. He does not seem to mind at all. In fact, it looks like it eases the pressure that he used to have. Emotionally speaking this is a very nice win. Also having his compatriot friend Anacona to his side.
An awesome performance by Quintana - Thought his stage win at the 2019 at the TDF was the best attack in the race - Doubt he can win another GT, BUT he is an important rider for any team because he can still win GT stages which are worth their weight in gold.
Nairo is looking lean and mean. Looks like the move away from Movistar has done him good. It's early in the year, so maybe it's hard to speculate about the other riders. I wouldn't worry about Pinot here. He's looking decent, ready for continuing gains in form later on. Last year, maybe he came into the TDF peaking just a bit early(?) . . . Eddie Dunbar is impressive. Also, Sepp Kuss is looking much better early on than he usually does. Also, Vlasov has followed up his strong ride from yesterday with another good one today. Carthy is looking strong, too.
