What up with Froome's back? Would make the tour much more interesting for me if his preparation is less than perfect.

He was really consistent last year with some bad luck in places.

4-5 wins already this season? And he was very active at Strade. If there is a few riders who ride great all year round, it would be him and Rodriguez. I hope this kind of riding doesn't jeopardize their chance at Grand Tours

I think it's 5 wins this year.

Hard to maintain this level all year, the same goes for Kwiatkowski

My Dogma on Campa Record, Bora 35 is 6,9kg.
I doubt his Canyon is 4,9kg :welcome:

I found the finale of Strade Bianche similar to 2013 Tour of Flanders. Sagan tried to do what Cancellara did to him on Kwaremont, but failed.
He shoulda stayed on Kwiatek's wheel.

Exactly but it seemed to me that Sagan just didn't have the legs and Kwiatek was the stronger one.
Great win for the fellow Pole. He's the rider to watch in upcoming years.

+1. Would love to see this guy podium in an Grand Tour at some point.

He needs to decide what he will specialize in. Rare to see someone so good at everything.

Can he TT? I think that will decide his future for him? He's a solid climber mainly due to his build size, but oddly was holding his own on the cobbles at Flanders last year. My guess is Ardennes classics/1 week stage races become his specialty and he pulls off a GT podium in the Giro or Vuelta in the next 3 years.

Yes. His TT is not an issue. Very nice power output for his weight it seems as I follow his Strava. He will most definitely be stronger as years go by ;)

I thought Kwiatkowski was staying on Sagan's wheel for most of the time in last km's ;)

Right? Sagan is the superior sprinter, he should have focussed on staying with Kwiatek to the finish. Trying to drop him on a climb was a dumb move IMO.
