Quote from: Sagan
Today was a difficult day, especially because of the hot weather conditions. Thanks to my teammates I was in a very good position in the final kilometres, but the sprint started very early. That’s why some other riders who came from behind could reach a higher speed in the end. The good news is that my legs felt very good all day, so I’m looking forward to another chance tomorrow.

The Deceuninck race report also mentioned a bit of a headwind in the finale.

    The readjusted result is out and nobody of GC consequence lost any time.

    Not a great start for the :carrot in their first race at the PCT level. Half the team getting dropped (at the dam climb presumably) and not making it back before the crash. Tbf though Ballerin was in the break and Aranburu tweeted something about not being great due to a fall.

    Confession

    Until 10 seconds ago, I had always thought this race was in Puerto Rico.
    I'm totally serious.  :D

    Obviously, I've never looked into it, followed a single link, watched even the briefest of clips, or read one race report. But for as long as I've ever heard of it (which is probably been quite a few years) I had just always assumed it that it took place on that tiny island in the Caribbean.
    :fp 






    I've no idea why this race always had such a blind spot for me, particularly because having a race in Puerto Rico had always piqued my interest a bit, as I wasn't sure just how such an event would've ever come to be, or how it ever could've sustained itself. Well now, finally, I think I've got an answer to those pressing questions!
    :lol

    In my defense, there's quite a significant Puerto Rican population around central Connecticut, and so it's often in the news, and even more so recently with the Hurricanes and other disasters. I've worked with Puerto Ricans, played in bands with Puerto Ricans, have close friends who are Puerto Rican, and know plenty of people who vacation in Puerto Rico. So when I hear "San Juan," I instantly associate that with Puerto Rico, and nowhere else.

    But from the updates I've come across this evening, this race seems totally bonkers—no matter where it takes place!
    :o

    I'll try to be more informed moving forward.  :angel



    I may even try to watch a bit of it if I can.  :D

    Very messy, but no crashes thankfully.



    TT today.

    Alaphilippe lost 20" in stage 2, which kind of suggests he's not going for GC. He did the lead out for Hodeg.

    Alaphilippe lost 20" in stage 2, which kind of suggests he's not going for GC. He did the lead out for Hodeg.

    yeah, he also lost 15s the day before, but somehow ended up with the same time although he was not affected by the crash.

    As usual, today's time trial will be on road bikes, btw

    I think I spotted a typo there, search. It should read:

    As they all should be.  :P

    Alaphilippe’s abandoned due to stomach issues.

    Who’s this Evenepoel bloke? Never heard of him. He’s obviously been flying under the radar.

     If I remember correctly, today's stage is the one that goes into the national park and has some stunning and unusual scenery, plus the odd Condor.

     Unfortunately, this year could also have some stunning and unusual weather, with temperatures more reminiscent of winter and a high risk of thunderstorms.
    Could get a bit hairy out in them thar hills.

    Zoooooooooooooom!

    Wow. I need to go back and watch some of the replay of his ride. I missed it yesterday, but was really curious to see what his form looks like. All the more reason to banish TT bikes from the face of the earth. I want to know what these guys look like on "real" bikes.

    If you look at the result and think wow, then the ride isn't a million miles away from that thought. The kid is a freak.

    The TDU counts as penance, and you are forthwith required only to watch those San Juan stages you want ...

    Give stage 2 a miss.

    Unless of course you’re looking for a substitute for The Tour of California this year.

    Gaviria went early-ish, but unlike the others on stage 1, he had the legs to hold on.

    Sagan still not looking great.



    Rest day today (unless you're riding the Sagan Fondo).

    As I was suggesting in the Stage 3 live chat:

    Is it just me, or does Sagan look like he put on a significant amount of weight?

    I realize it's only January, but I don't remember seeing him look so bloated before. Lighting and camera angles can often play tricks on the eyes, but there was some extended footage of him, from different angles, that was just not very flattering.

    So what gives? :slow

    He always looks big. Albeit I have a feeling he’s lost a bit of motivation, whether that’s because the team isn’t solely focused on him anymore, or whether it’s just because he’s rolling in cash, or whether it’s just because he’s a bit bored of sprint stages/road cycling I don’t know. I just get that feeling that his heart isn’t quite as in it as it used to be.

    Plus, he's recently divorced, no? That can impact a person in any number of ways.

    Yes, this plays a big role. He looked so happy being married and with his wife, from what I can tell from photos and short video clips.

    We don't know why they split, and it's none of our business, but it's obvious he's broken-hearted at the moment. He's going through the motions, and because he is a stellar athlete, that's still enough to get results from time to time.
    Time heals all wounds, they say. We'll see how long it'll take for time to heal Sagan's inner wounds.

     Yeah, especially as the punchline was that the old one won the three way battle, despite giving McNulty a minute and a half head start.
     At least the echelons on the flatlands were exciting and gave us hope of an upset.
    Another oddity was no completely ET Argentine rider this year. :D

    Quote from: Evenepoel
    In the steep descent it was pulled to the front. I was a bit trapped and I ended up in the second group

    Not that enlightening. Just poorly positioned too far back.

    There is a bit more info in Het Nieuwsblad about how it happened.

    https://www.nieuwsblad.be/cnt/dmf20200201_04830881

    He was in a good position on the descent, but when they got to the bottom and the pace dropped momentarily, he got swamped a bit as others came around the sides. Thus when UAE and Bora went again, he was trapped.

    I didn't notice him at all on the climb, but he obviously judged his effort quite well. Coming in ahead of the more visible Bora duo of Fabbro and Poljanski.
