More interestingly: the new Lemond lost 25 seconds.
He most likely wasn't ever going to beat the field in a sprint eitherNot sure what Andersen's game plan was there, as I don't think he was ever going to beat Moscon in a sprint by the looks of it?
Pleased for Moscon (yes I know). He could have been a force in the classics this year if it wasn't for yet another injury. Can't see too many more ideal races now for him till towards the end of the season?
Mohoric did the same in Liège last year, i.e. once he caught the small 4 man Alaphilippe group, he immediately "attacked" (which really = pulling for them). In hindsight it made no sense because he really just acted as a leadout guy, but whatever.Andersen rookie mistake but great show of talent, Moscon Kudos!
I mentioned this somewhere else: I think it’s suspicious as well as annoying. But that discussion would have to move to that other forum,So everybody now thinks it's better to train somewhere instead of doing preparation races? A bit annoying... especially, when the teams are not filled up by others who get their chances, but start with less riders than allowed.
At the start of the year everybody was so eager to race.
Edit: The most negative part about it is that I have to constantly rewrite my opening post.
Yeah, this is a bit rough. Hard to believe, as someone said, that he was on par with riders like Valverde back in February. Looking worse every race - not the trajectory I assume he was referring to when he said in the pre-race conference that he was looking forward to "seeing exactly where he's) at." He's so far from where he was last year even at the pre-Tour races. He must have had a real setback with his injury that he's downplayed.Is there any saving for Froome?
Is he just pedaling to collect his paycheck now? It is very painful to see now!
I don't think I was too harsh saying 'but great show of talent'. He's 21 right? He's allowed to make a rookie mistake IMO.Mohoric did the same in Liège last year, i.e. once he caught the small 4 man Alaphilippe group, he immediately "attacked" (which really = pulling for them). In hindsight it made no sense because he really just acted as a leadout guy, but whatever.
So I wouldn't be too harsh on Andersen here. Stuff happens & second wasn't too bad.
I actually thought it was a reference to 4/20, a day when lots of people celebrate smoking some green stuff but the Adolf reference does make more sense.You know that Adolf H guy? He wasn't the most including person...some might even say racist.... get the subtle link to Moscon now?
This. I think it's important for people to remember that it's perfectly possible to be a racist scumbag without being a Nazi. That is, as long as people always remember that Moscon is a racist scumbagJust because Moscon has some questionable views doesn't mean he's some big Adolf H fanboy celebrating his birthday, and everything.
Come on. Let's stay respectful. Moscon has had it hard as well.This. I think it's important for people to remember that it's perfectly possible to be a racist scumbag without being a Nazi. That is, as long as people always remember that Moscon is a racist scumbag
