Really? What was Sagan doing? I'd think he was doing post Tour crits as well.
Sagan mentioned in his post-race interview that he has been training in Colorado for the last two weeks, presumably to get used to the altitude so it sounds like he is taking the race more seriously than some.
Explain to me how being a pro changes the fact that you cannot be on top form all year despite what Tim K may say. Because they are pros they are supposed to be flying year round? Sagan's level now and consistency since the spring is insane; he is the outlier from the rest of 'the pros'.
Lastly it's silly to compare programs/fitness for GC guys focused primarily on the tour vs. sprinter's ...

Makes more sense to support the guy who isn't leaving

Stoked for the kid. One hell of a rider. I know a guy who was with him in the break up the climb in the 2011 Grafton to Inverell. Was told by his DS not to pull, his reply "I can't!". Lachie sat on the front and motored the whole break up and over the climb, without pretty much anyone swapping off with him

is particularly helpful at high altitude?
Fair enough, I guess I chose a not too great example, but I was pointing more that everything there ends with very small time differences.
Remember, Sagan is A#1 Cannondale boy now and ToC and Colorado are the biggest races in the home country of his sponsor.
