they're going to need a very climber friendly course to deter from winning a few more.

^The climb to Fløyen for the RR? No other way down but with the funicular. That would of course have made for a different race. :thumbup:
The steeper climb of Birkelundsbakken used for the TTT and all ITTs except ME was considered for the RR, but according to what I've understood they chose Landåslien/Salmon Hill to get a course that would suit EBH and/or Kristoff.

^^^ Well, they almost succeeded if not for the Sagan factor.

The course was meh, thought it would be more selective.
Sanremo-esque, i'd say. Anyway: Innsbruck might be more to your taste. Maybe there will be fewer Norwegian flags along the route too. Maybe.



Bit like San Remo but could have been a few kms shorter from the top of the hill. Every route has it`s charm though.
I like routes made for puncheurs. So Innsbruck looks good.

Matthews complaining about the moves he shouldn't have followed on the hill etc - not the answer. he simply didn't have the strength to sprint against Sagan and Kristoff. Of course, it doesn't help that Matthews gave away Sagan's wheel to follow a surge up the left side. You get to the end of a long race, don't give up Sagan's wheel - he's proven time and again that he's very good at navigating the scrum, and he's got the speed. The most reliable sprinter on the planet, if not always the fastest.

I don't know if I agree with you.. I think its fine to say what he said, he's looking back on the race trying to figure out what made the difference, what he could've done differently to have a better result. That is how racers get better. He's basically saying, he burned matches, chasing moves that ended up getting pulled back anyway and if you listen to Sagan's comments, he basically said, with 5K to go, I thought my race was over, that it had gone up the road. Sagan didn't chase those moves, but somehow the race ended up coming back together (not really sure how as coverage is spotty at best). I do agree though, that Matthews should have stayed on Sagan's wheel.

Matthews' best move of the day was pounding his bars.

It's pretty unusual to see third place looking so dejected on the podium. Usually that's second place's job. Third place's job is to just be happy to be there.
Perhaps those rules don't apply to genuine WC contenders.
