Jumbo dominance is undeniable but their 'style' is a carbon copy of Ineos Sky and I see weakness to the end. a team winning like that on a streak wont last long is about the numbers the massively put. Indeed impressive but at what cost? Even Froomey and G on board couldn't stop them, Ineos have no power to backup Egan 7 w per kg and then is the average train power of Jumbo. ... Is nothing to do about the Burden of #1 ... There's 3 big factors that made Ineos 'blow' 1. Egan was or still over trained 2. The team cant develop level chemistry on a preseason 3. Lack of wattage power and excess of politics/ leadership inside the riders. But for sure is not easy to acknowledge that last one.

Bernal is a boy compared to Chris Froome,he has more experience in his little finger than young Bernal has in his cycling life.As Chris said,when your wearing number 1 you are under so much pressure,Maybe Froome was not 100% fit but he would have had all his troops working for him and there is no way he would have pulled out.Basically Ineos has shit on there best men,and Jumbo Visma will slaughter them in every department.

Ineos is done. Jumbo Visma is unmatched. All Chris could talk about in the last interview was how Roglic cracked in the late stages in these grand tour events. How's that looking now? The only one to crack was Bernal, and it's because of the pace set by Van Aert, Kuss, Tom Dom et al. They are the new Team Sky. Loaded with all the best riders and not going away anytime soon. The only man with a chance at Roglic is Pogacar, and unfortunately for him, he just doesn't have the team to get him there. Tomorrow should lock up the podium positions.

@Javor Georgiev some good points there. His performance today was even more surprising. Something definitely not right. Got a hunch he may not even finish the TDF.
Javor Georgiev
Javor Georgiev 2 måneder siden
​@susan hill I doubt that mountain flop was purely due to youth. He has the strength on paper to do it and he didn't make big enough mistakes in his effort to get dropped that hard. Something in his preparation must have gone very wrong, because he was bluffing how he felt and nobody was buying it. He wasn't ready to defend from day 1 and whatever was wrong with him only kept getting worse. I don't know what happens at Ineos and what they can make the riders do. Maybe if Froome was there to give his experience it would have been slightly better, but nothing could fix his lack of power. He's not new to climbing. I don't think it was due to something done by anyone during the tour that he was lacking power. All he had to do was spin harder than everyone else. Pogacar did exactly that without a team built around him and he's not very old either. I didn't think he was sure to win the tour again, but to lose the way he did given what he's done is completely out of expectations.
susan hill
susan hill 2 måneder siden
@Javor Georgiev I understand what you're saying but even if he was preparing for the Giro and not TDF his performance was very poor, and you don't expect this from a supposedly world class cyclist. For example Quintana has had his best years but he gives everything he's got. Richie Porte after horrific accident is making a good show. I respect your opinion but to me at the moment I feel he's over rated and he's just not up to the job. Inios must take some blame for possibly expecting to much of him. Maybe Over the next couple of years he will prove otherwise. He certainly has youth on his side.

Yeah, yeah. Riders who win multiple world championship medals as a junior, get signed by one the best Pro Conti teams at 19, win Tour l'Avenir at 20, podium at Romandie, win California and act as last domestique for the TdF winner at 21, and win Paris-Nice, Tour de Suisse and Tour de France at 22 are a dime a dozen. I too wish he was properly rated, because he's shit. He's only done all that by pure luck.
Javor Georgiev
Javor Georgiev 2 måneder siden
​@susan hill I don't know how he would have done if those two big climbing stages weren't shortened. That attack sealed the victory for Ineos one way or another. Simon was more than willing to work with Bernal, both were feeling great and they'd be at it full gas till the finish with no turn skipped. Meanwhile, Geraint would only have to sit and wait as he gets pulled to the finish, if those two were ever caught at all, attack and put even more time into everyone else. It was a win-win scenario. For what he was, Bernal wasn't the least bit overrated. Remember, he wasn't even going to attend the tour. He was preparing for the Giro.

Great, polite, tactful gentleman - yet a savage during a race. Not a loudmouth or boaster like so many. A team is about its players not just a name. Without the experience of Froome and Thomas, Ineos has struggled. Of course they should have been there. I think he would make a wonderful commentator after his racing days are over. Hopefully he can achieve a few more glorious wins before that.

Lanterne Rouge Man, watched quite a lot of your videos. Have to say your videos were much more fun before you landed the big contract from ITV. Speaking about cracking under pressure. I think your best is when you do retrospective analysis of old races. You really weave an interesting narrative and make some really good points. Probably because you’d have more time to prepare them. I really don’t think respond to current event is your strength ( haven’t watched live with you so won’t comment on that). In a way, that is not down to your talent as a pundit, but rather the support you’ve got and experience. Usually standup guys got a room full of support writers and Ned here horned his skill over the decades.

Most English people behave very nice and they polish their words with respect and politeness. But you will never know what is running in their head. Most of them are not straight forward. Its quite difficult to believe 2 tdf winners Thomas & Froome are not participating at the same time and Ineos went to tdf with their less experienced riders since many many years. We can see the aftermath in the GC now. Well I don't mean you if are English, you are a fine gentleman :)

i will tell u what cracked bernal.i knew he was overrated.the tour was riding at high pace even on flat stages everyday almost was tough racing.bernal doesnt have time trial legs.and thats his biggest downfall..while it might seem that flatter stages dont hurt very much thats the furthest thing from the truth! when u dont have time trial legs u feel it no matter how much ur protected and i noticed it since the flat stages! riding at 60+ k/h almost everyday especially when going up to mountain stages is what destroyed his legs and make him feel empty and without power.and jumbo visma knew that! thats why they always wanted to control the races and set the tempo! having climbing legs + time trial legs is a guarantee for a strong lone leader and chance to win the tour! nairo quinatana is an example of why he wont ever win the tour! same with bernal! he won the tour last year because of luck! and is overrated!

@Jonathan Wallis yeah....sir firstable thanks for your answer and for share here your knowledege about it.....your comments made me think u actually are some kind of profesionnal analist inside any grand tour team, idk but maybe is that of even you was part in a corporation or group of sport analisys at some point of your labor life....u really schooled the other guy here in a hugee way!!.... On the other hand, yeah to me u r right, consider this out of normal season its possible some kind of personal (moral) situation and over training in Egan schedule this year, he begins so incredible again (his numbers really impressive), he is a real 3 weeks combative rider a serious great professional athlete but all of this was strange so ineos got the real responsability to fix the things specially if he got any phisiycal injury......u saw the pace of ienos team in this tour? was out their usual dominant power ability and control... u believe the track of this tour was a little away to the incredible style of Egan and ineos team decision could had be better to race giro instead of tour de france?...i said this, bcause of what happen the stage today, the only one in the style of mountain to Egan favour, the giro 2020 got this style of climbs .....thinking if ineos take egan to oompete in vuelta around 6 weeks im happy for Miguel Lopez too!! u know he's a humble warrior rider and here begins so strong this third week, all the best to him! Thank U Sir! Greetings!!

@Nice Doppy That's interesting, It was made clear that Portal's passing had had a big, enduring impact on the team, but I presumed that it would have been more of an issue with the longer-standing members who had spent more time working with him. But yes, there must have been some sort of factor like this at play, something psychological because his collapse in performance was just brutal. I mean Yates in the Giro blew up spectacularly, but he had been gunning it, in the Maglia Rosa, gleefully striking all his matches and the bill for all that extravagant use of energy came to the table and had to be paid. But Egan? It looked like he was keeping his powder dry for the third week, and he was far less flamboyant than Yates. Hope Bernal comes back the wiser and the stronger for all this and meanwhile, I'm celebrating SuperMan's stage victory!!

@Jonathan Wallis ... I was considering a comment that other users made to me in another video, in this regard that Egan has been doing a kind of silent duel after the surprising death of his friend and coach of the ineos team Nicolas portal, I don't know but it seems that this loss It affected him morally and perhaps due to the fact that Nicolas was no longer present as the team's technical director, since this natural change could also alter the training controls and race analyzes as well as his personal spirit at a competitive level without ignoring how combative Egan its like runner. ...... on the other hand, they commented that egan is not exactly a TT rider but Egan beat Roglic himself in a chrono stage on a tour de romandie that was defined only by small seconds bonuses only two years ago when egan had very little time of being professional .... interestings your comments!

jj love I don’t think we can discard overtraining as a possibility just because he is in Ineos. If they are so impeccable in their training supervision then why did Thomas roll up to the Dauphine undercooked. As for endurance .......endurance is endurance whether the road is flat or going up. A Wat is a watt. Those huge training rides Bernal put in were all about endurance. And last year he walked away with the GC precisely because he is strong in the third week.. When the peloton is steaming along at 60km on the flat nobody gets shelled out the back. They all motorpace around that speed as part of their training. It’s only when the tough gradients set in do they start to get drooped. It’s the TTS that cause problems for some of the climbers because their power to weight ratio provides them no advantage. The rider who weighs 10 or 12 kilos heavier than them will often have the extra power to go with it. It’s not endurance they are lacking but power. So over the years the big champions are the ones that can climb and TT well because many tours have had a lot of time trialing . Froome being the best recent example. Or they TT incredibly well and defend in the mountains eg Indurain. TTS are not Bernal´s strong point nobody will argue with that but this endurance on the flat idea of yours .....nah. In the race of truth yoúre all on your own but speeding along on the flat in the middle of the peloton protected by your domestiques - that’s not going to unsettle anyone.. If he or any rider was unable to endure that Ineos wouldńt even look twice. Killer instinct or lack of? I Dońt know.

@Jonathan Wallis while i do agree his watts were impressive and i do wish him the best and many more tour to ride and win..but i always noticed certain things in his riding style and one of them he doesnt seem to have the killer mentality to fight through and push through no matter how hard and stacked the odds are against him..and i think that seperates the all time greats from the Great riders..he did say that it wasnt his back so thats off the table.i wouldnt say he overtrained because everything ineos does is to get their rider to peak at just about the late 2nd week going into the third..if u go back and watch the earlier stages u can see what i was talking about...the racing was very hard in this tour and often times starting from the beginning of the stage and especially on the stages farrr out heading into climbs they were riding realllly hard...and when i was looking at this strava and his rides it was moslty focussed on climbing wich is obvious i geuss because thats what this tour is mostly..abd he did alot. Of this in columbia..and i believe he didnt put enough time into his endurance part on the froomey says that while he does focuss on the mountains he puts just as much time or even more into his endurance riding..and i believe bernal oversaw the fact that these race days on the flats wohld be this fast for that long...and trust me it drainsss u if ur not wel prepared enough for that..and if u dont agree..then again yates is the same type of riding style like bernal..quintana too..tibau pinot too..thse riders dont put enough into their endurance and while they are monsters on climbs teams can take advantage of this and they usually alwaaaays crack going into second and 3 weeks..which is exactly what jumbo did..they set blistering pace on the flats and mountains

EB *could not* have won the GC last year had GT not been there. This year they practically gave EB zero support. I mean *zero* . It's pretty trumped up of Ineos to go there saying we're here to win it. The arrogance that they expect winnings to be delivered on a plate. The entitlement culture runs strong in these quarters.

@simon Simon He didn't have. Just being there was enough. You can't win the tour at 22 based on raw talent alone. It takes more than physical talent to do it.

How does he get a chance to watch the stage and comment in such detail when he’s riding his own stage race?

Dont you listen ? He said he able to catch the last half hour - and then there is always the replay.

Ned, are you going to address the other elephant in the room? Chris is no where near likely to win the Vuelta based off his Tirreno-Adriatico performance. He lost 1.30 in a 10km flat time trial and shed a ton of time over the week as a whole.

At this point I think he's using the vuelta to then push on into next season.

he has enough time going into the vuelta.its not always about his performance.its the watt and the steady consistency and growth hes making.dont forget where this man came from and how much less racing hours he has in his is a daunting task i must admit and hes aware of that but if its anyone that can pull it off to be better than he was after such a crash then its froome the four time tour winner!
