As much as I don't like Carapaz, I think if you've won the Giro by basically being in the breakaway at just the right time, you probably know that you gotta keep going all the way to the line here

Van Aert has said gently caress it. Gold or nothing.

You've got an Anglo and an Ineos fighting for the win, this must be hard.

Americans are only semi Anglo. Got some humility after the Armstrong thing so we don't act like we own the sport like the British or Australians

Theres no way they close 45 seconds in 15km on this terrain. You'd need Van Der Poel at Amstel Gold levels of effort.

Alternately they could use Amstel Gold levels of bad time gap reporting

If I saw that correctly, McNulty got his attack in just before the feed zone at the low cost of not feeding. Let's see how that one plays out for him

The UCI needs to step in and ban bike races on car race tracks. It's always awful.

It's not the same having a wasteman sprint without Matthews.


Have to say that a two man break with one dude cramping out 5k out is one of the lamest possible ways a bike race can end
