    Today at 15:24
  • search: but yes, normally he is pretty good uphill
    Today at 14:58
  • search: think*
    Today at 14:57
  • search: I don't really thing he has 2019 climbing legs this year. So far he hasn't shown much in that regard at least
    Today at 14:57
  • Mellow Velo: He is the one sprinter you would normally expect to make that final climb, so maybe.
    Today at 14:56
  • Leadbelly: *likelier
    Today at 14:53
  • Leadbelly: guess we'll find out later, but yeah bagioli looks a liklier option
    Today at 14:53
  • Leadbelly: he wasnt sandbagging? usually he's not that bad a climber as to be the first to be dropped and his movements on the bike looked very exaggerated
    Today at 14:52
  • Mellow Velo: Definitely looks that way.
    Today at 14:49
  • search: maybe Quickstep was chasing for Bagioli or Stybar to begin with

    Today at 12:53
  • Leadbelly: so what do you think about CQ next year search? lower budget or not? teams will be ridiculous imo if we have 7500
    Today at 12:47
