Hes definitely one to watch for the near future
Viviani wins S2. he's done good since scarpering from Sky.
Having a dedicated lead out train helps of course.
Hannah Barnes won the Setmana Ciclista Valenciana yesterday.
Race director's car slowing blamed somewhere. Did anyone here see it on TV?
Think I read they were blaming the cars automatic sensors
Thanks. Very strange - looks like a motorist brake-testing a bunch of commuters drafting. What could have set the sensors off? I guess it has to be accepted as part of the risk the peleton accepts when choosing to draft the director's car through the neutral zone, though.
It’s hardly drafting at that point tbh, the speed they were travelling at. No real gain for the riders, that they would not have had from the peloton itself.
Gutted for Cav though. .
nice to see kittel finally have a go at last even if he was pipped at the line
With the extra distance he travelled crossing at the end, he would have been well ahead had his approach been clearer. Hopefully found good form again. Makes it more interesting when there’s competition.
GVA looks like he’s well up for making it three in a row.
Well played by Astana. Wooden spoon for Lotto-Soudal.
there will be a few from that front group kicking themselves after letting valgren away
Too much looking at each other....he deserved it.
Gatto did a good job of disrupting the chase though.
Valverde continues his impressive comeback with the GC at Abby Dabbi Doo.
