About freaking time he won a stage there :lol: 

 

He has finished top-10 in 19 (!) stages there, including eight 2nd or 3rd places, but without ever winning a race - and no, it's generally not a very strong field. Also Algeria's first ever stage win in the Bongo, about time.

Richie Porte did NOT win the final Tour Down Under stage :yikes: :yikes: After 6 consecutive wins on Willunga Hill, he now came in only 2nd (and still won the overall)

 

Matthew Holmes of Lotto-Soudal won the final stage, quite a big surprise for the World Tour rookie.

In the Bongo Natnael Tesfatsion showed he, like most African riders, still has a whole lot to learn in terms of tactics...throwing away the GC win by one second because of not paying attention in the intermediate sprints :facepalm:

To be fair, most African riders are more concerned about the Olympics, World Championships, and African Games where things like that don’t exist.

I'm talking about the ones who are from countries where more and more are getting in the bigger teams, like Eritrea. They are in it to be a pro cyclist, not just to compete in those championships. Obviously it's still early days for African cycling, but they really do need to learn those things, especially if we want to see an African win a race like this.

Remco Merckx thrashed around the entire competition in the 3rd stage of the Vuelta a San Juan, a 15k individual time trial. Filippo Ganna was the only one in the entire field (which admittedly isn't incredibly strong) who was not humiliated.
