Road Cycling 2019 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I know apart from Trentin it's not the strongest field one can imagine, but holy mother of God, Van der Poel completely destroyed everyone in the short final uphill finish :yikes: :lol:

Rarely seen, the Watts he puts on the road there is just out of this world. Not saying he's the favourite for the world title, but he is a very, very, very dangerous candidate and the Dutch team should without a doubt work 100% for his chances.

9k to go in Quebec, Evenepoel has dropped off a while ago, I guess he'll be content with only winning on Sunday :p

Alaphilippe opening the war way too fast made Matthews be able to come back and win.

I would rather say Sagan too much confident

That too, but going at more than 2km before the finish was just way too early from all of them..

I don’t think so, if he could have gone alone he would have won. With 5 of them, with van Avermaet and Sagan good sprinters, good tactics is taking a wheel. Sagan’s overconfidence in sprint has caused the peloton to come back, in my opinion
