  • Fair enough.

    I still think having 3 jacks is better than 1 ace in a cobbled classic.

    you'd take that AG2R team over WvA or MVDP?
    Jumbo vs AG2R yeah I'd take AG2R assuming they don't have injuries. MvdP's team is basically him and Dries De Bondt and Dries is good but not the one.

    It's a great combo at AG2R - Jungels can go from long and you would expect either Naesen or GvA to make the proper selection - they also know the courses so well - their expertise and their commitment to that part of the season will rub off on the rest of the team.
    Not surprising that WvA is disappointed with Mike Teunissen hitting the Tenerife rock and picking up another longish term injury.
    Potential major player gone right there.

    Right, exactly.

    Ultimately it's a bit of a lottery so you need enough riders at a certain level that you have a chance at least one of them will make the final selection, and if you have more you have tactical options which can take priority over legs.

    Really hope they get on and admit the Olympics are off so MVDP can get that out of the back of his mind and focus on producing a classics campaign for the ages...

    No one from the 2021 start list of the Tour will ever again finish above Pog in a Tour that Pog completes

    Cavendish to retire this season, I think.

    No longer confident Cavendish will take my advice to leave the audience wanting more, if I'm honest.

    I'll never get a post nominated for the Post of the Tour thread, despite providing video of Bjarne Riis being interviewed in the studio while sitting on a chair that makes Fart noises
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”
