The last 40km of his Giro stage win is not dissimilar terrain, and he was putting time into the chasers all the way to the finish.Am I the only one who doesn’t believe in Healy’s Lombardia chances at all? Passo di Ganda is almost 10k at over 7% with a seriously steep final section, that’s an entirely different kettle of fish than the terrain he’s impressed on all year. Yes, if he’s in the front group going into Colle Aperto he’s a dangerous individual, but surely the best actual climbers just put too much time into him on Ganda?
Normally I like JV. I’d throw rocks at him for this, though.
Couldn't be arsed being Healy and having to stomach this guys rubbish chat.
I think Healy has the ability to get a result by making a move before the big favorites (so before Ganda in other words).
Maybe when it comes to Lombardia he will get dropped already before that or steamrolled by the favorites on the Ganda even starting with a gap, but right now it looks like he is in good enough form to make Lombardia more interesting.
That is a possibility but I am not even that convinced that Healy will get steamrolled by favourites on Passo di Ganda (maybe apart from Pogačar). He was arguably the strongest rider in this year's Giro stage 15 breakaway that went up the similar Roncola Alta climb and only lose the stage to McNulty a really strong rider over medium mountains. Plus we know from AGR and LBL that Healy handles the long distances well.
Hirschi 15sec faster than Healy T1 but yeah Uae tactics was sooo bad yesterday. After this stage Uae will 1e and 2e gc
Kragh used to be super close to a guy like Küng in every single time trial
is this mediocrity due to the team's equipment?
There is a world of difference between a stage in a GT and a full on one-day race.
What the hell, does UAE have the greatest TT setup of all time or why are they winning?
If Healy had worn his EF skinsuit he would've looked like Jigglypuff with that helmet. It doesn't help that he kinda looks like a Brit Rock artist despite being Irish, since "Sing" seems to be a plausible move for him then.The mushroom head is back!
