It was interesting to see that in the Liege Bastonge Liege even top pros can make a very basic and amateur mistake. The race isn't over until you've crossed the finish line.

Alaphilippe gets too excited but that's Alaphilippe and part of what makes him the rider he is.

Hope he learned something from that race finish.

Apparently he did not...


Good grief, Alaphillipe. Get your ass well across the line before you celebrate!
