Surprised that Hessmann is outclimbing so many good riders.
Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!
Yeah, kinda true.
Monoclimb stages with a hard tempo on the flat also suits strong rouleurs, the next 2 days will be a bigger test for him.
He finished with Chaves, Johannessen, Hart etc in Norway where Evenepoel pushed the same numbers as two days ago. He lost the same amount of time there as the Roglic group two days ago. Both 30 minute climbs.Hessmann with 1,90 and 78kg can push some serious Watts. Didn't know that he can climb that well.
Uijtebrooks will probably be with the best climbers in some races next year.
Yeah, Lenny crashed. That said, riding the baby giro, valle d'aosta and the Tour for the gc after a decent amount of racing during the spring (also against the pros) is a lot for a first year u23 rider.Germany dropping their own leader, lovely. Ffs who thinks of these tactics. They hammered that climb like they have the best climber in the race while it's the opposite.
And I just hope the crash did something to Martinez cause he has been massively disappointing.
Staune Mittet and Archie Ryan are going to get surprisingly good results out of this Tour de l'Avenir.
Hagos Welay Berhe is also a pretty interesting prospects (rides for the EF continental team).
Is it a surprise if Staune Mittet ends up on the podium? I was expecting to fight for a top 3 - top 5, but I don't follow U23 riders that closely.
Also on the former Rabo developmental team, so they are pretty much already pros, just like Cian.Top 5 - top 7 was my guess, but both him and Ryan look to be in super form and some of the favorites either failed hard or are out due to sickness and crashes. So 2nd place is definitely a surprise to me,.
He already lost tons of time on the previozs stage, looks like the baby giro was really an outliner for him.What happened to Leo Hayter today to drop 20 minutes.
Overall looks like a brutal day with around 30 riders succumbing to DNS/DNF/OTL and even 3 DSQ.
