Sagan was cooked. He had a losing hand and tried to do the best he could with it. He knew he wouldn't be able to follow the inevitable K attack, since K was pedaling with relative ease, so instead tried to take the initiative.

Yes, but it didn't look like Kwiatkowski had wanted to ride in front very much. If Sagan let him to front and he wouldn't have pushed it, the chasing group may have got them. The gap was very small.

Did you see how K bridged up to Sagan? He was riding like a Boss that day. Sagan wasn't going to win unless K flatted or crashed. Sagan was lucky Valverde didn't close the gap at the end.

Sagan could actually benefit from being caught. Again, he'd be the best sprinter of that bunch so the risks would be more manageable. But maybe he didn't know if there was a sprinter in the chasing group.

new Millar's bars, from 3T
Millar likes his bar tape double wrapped.

every mention of Garmin now makes me think of their terrible glasses. i assume POC are going for the 'any publicity is good publicity' angle...

Sorry to quote myself, but:
POC is wicked cool.

The glasses are much less heinous than the TT helmet and honestly, not that bad in person. I guess I'm also used to So Cal bros wearing huge glasses like that for years so this isn't much of a change.
It would be awesome to see what Geraint Thomas could do on a different team where he was given more of a leadership/protected rider role instead of being an equal option with EBH and Stannard.

I don't mind the POC road lids of lenses but I had a hard time keeping serious watching their TTT this morning with that mushroom cap... and this coming from someone who wears an Air Attack.
