and lastly - with Matthews - I had to laugh. 

I had just finished reading this before the race

yet at Brabantse Pijl - his lack of team mates didnt end up costing him the race - his inability to go did.  Vakoc and Wellens bridged from the peloton and contested the sprint.  Matthews' lack of team mates wasnt the issue - he simply couldnt go with them at the end.

And at Amstel Gold - it was all talk.  Far from attacking - when the moves were being made - both the Benoot move, and when things split up with 30 to go and GVA/Valverde went ahead ... Bling was nowhere.

I have no doubt that with the new finish he WILL win this race.  It is perfect for him.   But he has to come here in better shape.

To be fair, Matthews was involved in the same crash as Gasparotto and Kreuziger. There wasn't much he could do.
