Never saw W52 look that strong in a race which has actual WT teams in it lol

Genuinely bizarre take. Not going further than this race (like Asturias), they looked about as strong as in past editions of Algarve.

They only won because the field was exceedingly weak and on top of that Hayter and Costa had nasty falls (and puzzling tactical decisions like Asgreen setting the pace on Foia and Sky today).

I mean, how on earth is this stronger or more impressive than Amaro Antunes finishing 5th behind Roglic, Kwiatkowski, LLS and Gallopin while ahead of Dan Martin, Bilbao, Spilak and Tiesj Benoot? Can you elaborate?
