Haven't updated this in week or so.
Thrilling end to an otherwise boring (standard edition then) MSR. Sagan exploded on the Poggio and blew all but Kwiat and Alaphillipe away. They duked it out in the sprint. Looked like Sagan went early, but comments from Kwiat said he let the gap grow every so slightly so he could use the slipstream to more benefit. Love the photo of Sagan leaning into Kwiat.
Lots of classic racing this week. Dwars Door Vlaanderen today, first time at WT level so a very strong line up. May well end up in a bunch kick. E3 Harelbeke on Friday, Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday.
Over in Spain, it's Volta a Catalunya. FDJ held the leaders jersey into yesterday's TTT. Movistar beat BMC by 2 seconds, but were accused of cheating (pushing riders into line is a BANNED ACT). Initially, only the pushers were penalised, but overnight, the UCI officials found the rule book and corrrectly docked the whole team 1 minute as per the rules. Ben Hermans leads the race as of this morning. A bit of shambles really.
@hanshotfirst forgot to update my team going into today, so you might pull out a bit more of a lead
