Anybody wanna put in their .02 on how his year's gonna go next year?
I wish him all the luck but I think he's gonna have a tough time since he'll be marked more than ever. I do hope he won't have a 2013 Gilbert type of World Champ season. Phil looked like he had a jar of honey that year and the bees just chased him wherever he went.
But I do think this kid has a good attitude on his approach on competition - he never gives up. I personally thought he did the right thing earlier where he just took it by himself rather than play the watching game with Matthews, Uran and Co. He gets caught up too much in these situations and this is where everybody marks him. He attacked at the right time and knew nobody descends like a MFer like him.
I hope he works on his tactics and Tinkoff gets more guys (Pozatto and Blythe is on-board, not sure how much space they got but a lot of their riders are leaving).
Another bridesmaid year for GVA him and Sagan are my 1A and 1B. I also thought Delgenkob will have Sagan's wheel until the end but he was obviously caught off guard.
So what do you think?
whoever caught that helmet earlier is one lucky MOFO sitting on a pot of gold.
Sinyard is probably having a party at the moment. Imagine the marking push in '16
