There is NOTHING I love better than a daring breakaway smashing the odds and breaking the dreams of the sprint teams and that’s EXACTLY what happened in Stage 18 of the Tour de France. It took all four of the breakaway riders to keep the fast men at bay but only one could win. That honour went to Soudal Quick-Step’s Dane Kasper Asgreen. My moment of joy is for the quartet that dared and won.
It was a Monument weekend with the Tour of Flanders and we have the tweets to prove it! And once again, the winner wasn’t the rider that most people were talking about. That red and white nat champ’s jersey gives Kasper Asgreen some real superpowers.
Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan gather round the table to discuss the past two weeks of racing.
- Midge is all in on Kasper Asgreen
- Luke has praise for the mighty Cofidis
- Kathi loves it’s not predictable
- Euan only has eyes for E3
