Jesus, what a fucking race! I've watched the last 50km 4 times thus far and every time, the finish is the same, but I notice a small intricacy that I missed in a previous viewing. Just brilliant!
Know what's not brilliant, Vaughters and his DS work. Missing the breaks and then trying to spin it into a positive? Hey JV, you don't need to speak when a mic is stuck in your face. Making the excuse that you only had two guys with a shot is re-donk-u-lous. I guess you haven't watched the replay to notice that the guys in at the kill were alone, or only had one team-mate. The math? 1<2 and 1+1 = 2 !!
Here's a tip for the future...
When the break is up the road, and the DS from BMC tells his guys, on the OPEN radio channel, to go to the front and nail it to bring the break back, FOLLOW them. I don't profess to know a lot about being a DS, but when shit like that happens, it may be to your team's advantage to pay attention. Just sayin'....
And Cancellara didn't win...so what? He showed pure class in coming third. And how about Chavanel? Dude was a horse all day! he may be French, but that was a Belgian ride if I've ever seen one!!
Have a good Monday! See you guys at the TNWC tomorrow (the rain will be out of here by start time, so roll out!)
