Last 3km are okay with littering guys, chill.

Everyone crazy about MvP losing a sprint, but I don't see anyone bat an eye at Vanmarcke actually winning a sprint (for 4th). That's one for the history books!


I don't know why, he was never slow. I guess him getting beaten by Cancellara still hurts him. As someone else said, he really could've been great in Roubaix.


I agree, has almost become a meme by now but he's a more gifted cobbler than most of the 10-15 latest winners.

Ok, so neither Asgreen nor Alaphilippe are taking any turns... QS at its worst. Either chase or lead but this neither/or is so negative racing.


Lol

I am impressed by Mathias Norsgaard too looking at the results. He was in the break, didn't look the strongest and still managed to finish only 3:19 down on the winner. That's some serious stamina and ability to suffer, especially standing 2'02 tall up all the cobbled climbs.

Ya compared to the fact that he is completely unknown Norsgaard had a fine race.

At that moment, Asgreen was sitting on the wheel of WVA and VDP and Alaphilippe was sittin gon the wheel of the other group. Not sure what is being lol about it, since this is a tactic that QS has deployed many times in the past and usually it is seen as negative racing since they don't make the race then, but hey - so it's all cool. Of course Asgreen has eventually committed to leading too (after my comment was posted), presumably after they realized Alaphilippe was not so strong.
Unleash the Landa!

Nice race; this young generation is insane Shock
I am just sad that GVA still has not got his win in his home classic and probably never will as he is running out of time and starting to decline Sad
Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.

In the end Quicksteps tactics having multiple riders and forcing WVA and MVDP to chase from 60km out seems to have worked. They bluffed that Alaph was the leader to get those responses in the middle part of the race, and let Asgreen rest compared to VDP and WVA. The sprint at the end was quite surprising, but definitely something that can happen after so many kms.

VDPs accelerations on climbs this year are amazing to see too.

What is LOL about it is that even at that point Kasper had done a lot to create a race, constantly attacking at all the tough moment, where as the other favorites had shown almost nothing. The Jumbo boy a bit being all alone, but can't really blame QS that Jumbo has a weak team. Just as you can't blame Jumbo on a mountain stage that QS has a bad team.

Anyway being able to outnumber the others is what RR is all about, otherwise it would be more logical to just watch ITT.
