What a race! Probably the finest hilly classic I've seen since I started watching. Had everything, long attacks by favourites, riders brushing, multiple groups on the road, attacks out of a small group and then a 2-up sprint for the line between the two strongest, most tactically astute riders. Absolutely thought Kwiatkowski had it, but Gilbert played that to perfection.

This spring really has been a treat, I had also been thinking on this tipping point idea as an explanation. Very pleased to see attacking riding being rewarded, and long may this new paradigm reign. Bring on the last of the spring!
