Trying for a surgical jinx here: this is van der Poel's to lose, and obviously the rest of the course really only favors Alaphilippe. Can't see too many surprises happening here

Climbs not long enough at the finish for w/kg to really matter and he cant follow anything van der Poel and Alaphillipe spank out.

I legit thought his bike was going to break. Stamping on those pedals like they had personally wronged him.
