How The Race Was Won – Gent-Wevelgem 2015

Mar 30 2015

Another one of those (lol) Sprinters’ Classics. Nice to have the crosswinds kick the living daylights out of it this time around, resulting in a very different, strangely tactical conclusion.

    Now that’s a classic. EQS is having an odd spring, with strong riders and numbers that are unable to solve the equations for the win. And I wonder what Cav has done to piss off his mechanic?

      Agree! great to watch from the start. But anybody who has ever rode in the wind has to feel for the poor riders. In that context, the 3 km effort by Paolini to bridge between the groups was just incredible.

    I could not imagine a more deserving winner! Finally. age (38), experience and wisdom triumph (though Chris Horner winning a GT at age 41 still takes the cake!)

    surely this post should be titled how the race was lost…. Ettix threw it away (again!)

      I was thinking the same thing, but on the other hand, Vandenberg seemed completely cooked and everyone knew it.
