    They’re gassed behind.

    Who sprints faster - MvdP or WvA?

    No. I recon MvdP buries WvA on the Paterberg

    How much flat are we expecting to the finish? Gap is nearly a minute but you would think it's still possible for the chasers if they get themselves sorted with a long flat section.

    Possibly MvdP, but the difference is small enough that it lol come down to tactics and tiredness...

    I think WvA will have a few digs on the last two...

    Nah they’re gassed it’s done
  • Gap now over a minute

    This chasing group is shite, they aren't even trying. Once JA went down that should have been a real incentive and opportunity to catch the front 2.

    van Baarle must be kicking himself. Three attacks it quick succession that created the splits then couldn't quite follow the front 3 on the decisive move.

    Here we go OK and P combo one more time!
  • Right stand by.

    Not sure the moto really did anything wrong there, vdp and wva were trying to use the draft, swung out late

    You don't get draft from a static bike. MvdP caused that
