In all these cases, its about using brains to wait for the sprint and do as little as possible. This is the fancrush of the supporters of Roglic.
The others who fancrushing (like me) enjoy people going for the win. try things, play around. If it doesn't work it you are called stupid, if it works out its called brilliance. But at least i enjoyed/went up in the stage.
I missed this since I put you on ignore but it was quoted in another post.
I'm 72, my first fancrush was on Jacques Anquetil. There have been Many different types of riders since that stole my heart. One doesn't choose a favorite it just happens. To this day my all time favs are Il Pirata followed by Eddy, Hinault, LeMond, Contador and Nibali. But one day in 2018 there was this guy Primoz who I'd noticed before but that day he was in 4th place in Le Tour and he took on the Sky train and beat them. He stole my heart
. He's a much more regimented rider now
but every once in a while the panache is allowed to show (team car not yelling at him ) and has become Very Successful. All my favs have retired and he rides on winning and winning, and winning. I'm happy
. That doesn't mean I don't appreciate Pogi, or Vingo or Remco. I do lean towards stage racing, this is a endurance sport. Being GOOD day after day after day is the epitome of cycling to me. I enjoy one day specialists but it's not the same, just about anybody can be good for one day!
Fans that denigrate other riders without a Really Good reason (riding smart isn't a good reason) because they're beating their fav turn me off so Goodbye again.[/QUOTE]
