Men's Road Cycling UCI World Tour 2021

Yesterday: Mathieu van der Poel took the first stage of UAE Tour.

 

Today: Alpecin team member tests C19 positive: he & the rest of Alpecin-Fenix leave the race.  Obviously whatever its virtues as a shampoo, Alpecin is not an anti-bacterial.  Well, unless the team member was bald.

On the evidence of the first few weeks of the season, nothing has changed since we went away.  
 

Poglučar is the best in long Tours. 
Sam Bennett is the fastest sprinter.  

Ganna is the fastest time triallist.  

van der Poel is the most dangerous in breakaways. (In the absence of the Belgian boy bands)

Alaphillippe is the best all-rounder.

To be fair, the UAE Tour in terms of general classification is just about who is the best in the combination of one short time trial and a grand total of two climbs, it really doesn't say a lot (or anything at all) about long Tours :p

Well, more than three day tours, put it that way.  :)
