  • Did the Belgian commentator say 6 kms to the Kemmelberg just then?

    Stannard giving it some big effort
  • Cav about 40th rider over the top in that chase group.
  • afx237viafx237vi Posts: 12,630
    Pozzato showing his hand a bit early on the Kemmelberg. Unlike him.
  • Mad RoadieMad Roadie Posts: 710
    oops - everyone stopped - the gap is too small
  • LangerDanLangerDan Posts: 6,132
    Sky shutting GreenEdge down so G-E can't try to shed Cav on the climbs

    What's van Avermaet doing?
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 52,624 Lives Here
    You'd think BMC would hold it in till the Kemmel.

    And why let van Avermaet do anything unless it's properly attacking/following?

    Waste.
  • Smart Cav, hoping to start the climb near the front.
  • Mad RoadieMad Roadie Posts: 710
    a big off for 3 or 4 Ugalde - Commeyne - and pavarin looks bad
  • EKIMIKEEKIMIKE Posts: 2,232
    I agree! BMC have been using van Avermaet terribly so far in the classics. He's clearly strong but they want to sit him on the front doing the work any number of riders can do.
  • ddraverddraver Posts: 21,116
    He was nt exactly going hard though, suspect they re trying to hold position at the front more than anything else....
