the hidden motors again :bowdown:

You do know it was a downhill? :d 

 

Even I managed 75km/h in a slight downhill in GBR some years ago, on a horribly bad bike (that was not meant for racing and that started shaking at that speed) with a big backpack.....not hard to imagine pro's can reach these speeds on racing bikes, big descents and with aerodynamic positions :d

Today it's the hell of the Tiefenbachferner above Sölden, now that's going to be interesting, the highest finish in pro cycling in Europe this year :d

And my prediction of multiple Sagan wins comes true :cool: @heywoodu  He is ready for another green in 10 days. :banana:

I forgot today's stage :d 

 

Well yeah there's no doubt he's the main favourite for the green as always, you don't need to be the best pure sprinter for that anymore since a long time :p

No worries, I get that :d 

 

There was a time when it was more about being the best sprinter though (and before that it was not really about that at all with people like The Cannibal Merckx), nowadays it's entirely perfect for someone like Sagan :p
