Yes! Too bad Eurosport had no live video after that as Alaphilippe got rid of Moscon and was alone and then get caught from the peloton

It wasn't eurosport. It was the norwegian broadcast having a major technical f*** up.

I'm pretty sure Sagan just snuck out from behind a bush at the end! :lol: I literally saw nothing of him through the whole last 100km that i watched until the end and there he was in third wheel! Shame Kristoff couldn't pull it off in front of a home crowd though.

Moscon's doing everything wrong to gain attention - racist comments, getting towed by a team car... I wonder if bookies take bets who's gonna produce a positive doping result - my money would be on Moscon :?

We got 6 (7 if you count the Sunweb male team who are NL based under German license). Really happy with the current situation of Dutch cycling. Great riders in both male and female side.

Power failure took out the whole Fløyen area, where the heli-link receiver was placed.
I find it quite difficult to blame that on the broadcaster.

The course was meh, thought it would be more selective.

yesterday Niewiadoma said the route and the hill were much too easy. given men have a bit more power and ride a tad faster, we couldn't really expect much more. IMHO given the profile the race itself wasn't all that bad, few nice moves, great attack by Alphaville, but that 10km slope to the finish line was a buzzkiller.

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.

They should have tossed the climb from the TT into the course.

That would have been awesome (maybe not for the riders, but certainly for us!)
