Man, I was pumped to see Absalon get over Schurter last night! First lap was deja vu from last week and I was just shaking my head about how Nino can rip a field apart like that, but man, it didnt take long for him to come back to the chasing group… I went to bed when he had floated all the way back to 5th or so, between the two BHSuntour dudes, so it was also cool to hear that he came back to second.
The two of them are just so great, I like em both, but for whatever reason I am always hoping for an Absalon win.
Dan again had a pretty conservative start and finished off well with 6th place… its great to have an Aussie to cheer for.
Looked a lot less technical than the previous two rounds, was nice to see Sven Nys in the results too. I wonder if he will have (or has had?) a crack at many other courses at this level.
Girls… well, its a one-woman show at the moment and I’m digging it. Ferand Prevot is monstering everyone!
Loving the red bull coverage.
