So at the time of writing he was carrying out a great tactical move.At the time of the writing he wasn't waiting for him and was pushing in the front of the race. They only corrected it much later.
Top kek.So at the time of writing he was carrying out a great tactical move.
Sending a team member in the break to help team leader later is hardly a new tactic. Surprised you didn't realise it. Pog was unlikely to drop Vinegar in the climb, but had he done so WVA was there to lead Vinegar back to him in the descent.
Kek, who didn't know? You? I didn't write anything about sending team mates up the road. What made no sense was him pushing if that was the idea.Didn't know sending team mates up the road was a tactic.
Resorts to insults when pointed out.
Keep going, PhilLiz. You are doing well...
Nice projection in the end there. Imagine being exposed so bad that you need to look up my posts to try (and fail) to find something to pick on.OK, let's make this really simple, so that even a noob such as yourself can understand.
WVA is of little use on a climb if TP attacks. Vinegar can probably hold his own and has a pacing wingman.
TPwas always going to attack. If he succeeds and Vinegar gets a little dropped he needs a skilful heavier rider to do all the work on the descent and drag him back to TP. If WVA was there at the attack he won't be there on the descent. Hence the insurance policy of sending him up the road.
You said WVA tactics made no sense. But that is because you dont understand cycling . It isn't my fault that you know nothing, so there is no need to start throwing insults like a petulant adolescent.
wait until he does a repeat of last year's tour and wins stages 20 and 21 , probably 19 tooI'm a known MVDP fan on this site, so I'll probably get called sour grapes on for this comment But Wout is kind've ridiculous at this point. Are we really supposed to believe he can climb mountains like this, with nary a stage off, and always pulling on every terrain? The unbelievability is reaching Lance levels. Of course he's not the only one who's benefited from the high level of "professionalism" at JV. As talented as Wout is (and he is massively talented), the progression in certain facets of his performance is suspicious at best.
I imagine many teams outlaw posting all data. Still really cool that he’s willing to share it. And yeah, looks aren’t always telling but with MVdP it’s definitely accurate, probably also why he’s less consistent.Crazy thing is he never even looks like he has to go that deep. MVPD on the other hand...went beyond his own limits to win stage 1 of the Giro - think his max HR hit 201. Interesting that MVDP is one of the very few guys willing to post all their data - including HR.
