It was a nice race. Disappointed as a Belgian but have to admit that the best rider won and it's well deserved. What is weird is that moments prior his decisive attack we could see Alaphilippe biting his teeth, fighting and Van Aert breathing through the nose but still Julian won and Wout came 2nd. Julian is the more explosive rider of the two anyway. We could see that in Milan-Sanremo, only then Wout was able to capitalise on the descent to come back. On a harder route it's harder for him. He's too heavy.

Anyway, isn't it unusual to have 20+ km laps at the Worlds? I've always thought 20km was a limit.
