Lanterne Rouge Cycling Podcast |
An attack from Roglic’s Jumbo-Visma team-mate Sepp Kuss inside the final five kilometres made a decisive split, with the likes of Carapaz, Dan Martin and Hugh Carthy following but Tom Dumoulin and Alejandro Valverde among those left behind.
After they crested the climb EF Education First’s Carthy struck out for glory on the short descent to the finish but could not distance his rivals and it was Roglic that made the winning move as they passed under the flamme rouge.
“It’s nice to win,” Roglic said. “I’m really happy. The team showed again that they’re all really strong. They worked perfectly through the whole stage and in the end I was able to win so it’s a beautiful start.
“It’s a strange season so I’ll just enjoy the leader’s jersey, starting from tomorrow, and the fact that we’re racing, hopefully it will be fun to watch at home.”
With bonus seconds applied, Roglic takes a five-second lead over Carapaz and Martin third, a further two seconds back, while Carthy sits seventh with a 14-second deficit.
Enric Mas and Esteban Chaves also kept themselves in contention, 11 seconds down in the general classification.
But Dumoulin and Valverde are already a minute down while the likes of Thibaut Pinot and Aleksandr Vlasov suffered even greater deficits.

If Froome didn't have a supersized ego he would have retired after that dumb crash that was his fault.

Thank you once again another fantastic race analysis. You never fail to pick up on and highlight those small and detailed moments of the race that make the difference, and I never fail to be impressed. Cheers!

Whoever is managing this channel should make this a thing, LR analysis of cycling races that is. I bet it’s gonna show in the channel numbers while delivering the best at doing this kind of stuff to us watching Great job!

Ok, Froome's pre-race numbers may well have been good but being race fit is another story. I don't think there was ever a possibility of him being a serious contender.

Excellent analysis. Pity you could not do this (Commentary along with video footage) every day.

Best cycling commentary in English bar NONE - this guy knows his stuff and is so articulate, eloquent, and concise.

Quite agree with comment below...coverage of the giro is TERRIBLE. Rob Hatch is the worst commentator EVER !! Here the commentary is intelligible, informative, unhurried and grown up. Eurosport must be so embarrassed about how they have covered the giro.

Is this a symbol that Ineos are going to go aggressive they know froome isn’t fit enough to race for GC are they maybe going to throw froome up the road and force JV to chase the race because if ineos can then leapfrog to froome that could be a really strong 2 up TT

Why is Ineos choosing Carapaz over Bernal?

Biker Boy Måned siden
Cause bernal showed that he wasn't ready for it during this years tour
Jacob Kilby
Jacob Kilby Måned siden
Wonder if Froome will go into a similar role to Pavel Sivakov/Carapaz role at the Tour staying low and quiet in the first two weeks and then start to infiltrate breaks in the 3rd week
Wargey Måned siden
Yea he’s going to make it look like he’s riding a training ride out of fitness and will attempt to get up the road as a springboard

Lucky for IGD Carapaz joined their team in 2020. Other GC contenders were disappointing. If he can hang on with the Top 5 thru the first 2 weeks, then who knows. Kuss looks really impressive. Clearly a new generation of leaders have booted out the old dogs in their 30s. Ouch!

@Simon Rano your logic sucks , if Ineos have always been about british riders to win GT no matter what , then why did Bernal win the tour last year? , Why wasn't he working for Thomas? Why were they both co leaders and not Thomas as the sole leader? Why didn't Thomas and Froome take drugs so they could compete and win the tour this year?

Slahudeen Hussain Måned siden
@Simon Rano the brits have always been the best in rowing and the brownlees carried the brits to their triathlon results as did farah in distance running all of these guys havent failed a doping test once
Simon Rano
Simon Rano Måned siden
​@Slahudeen Hussain Sure, that is why an average European country had the best results ever in VO2 max based sports the same year. Road and track cycling, rowing, triathlon and 5000/10000 km runnin. Even during the spanish blood doping programm they didn't get 3 GT with 3 spanish riders the same year... It is so outreageous. Not mentionning the fact that all this happend while both UCI and IAAF where ruled by British people...

Roglic still has the potential to break in the third week, but Jumbo's strategy is impeccable this time. They clearly learned from their mistake at the tour which is great to see

You could really learn a thing or two from the official giro broadcaster NOpost highlights. This has way too much actual race footage and analysis. We don’t want to see it. You didn’t even have a close up of what shoes Roglic was wearing.
