"brian nygaard" Discussed on The Cycling Podcast

"Road race and feminine tomorrow and by are really intriguing. Man's road race in prospect. On a course here we are in flanders saw is of course that doesn't really have too many echoes with too many of the very many races that there are here. I mean flesh brabourne saw bourbon. Pale is the one that's mentioned most regularly. I'm actually doing a ride on thursday and around the two circuits. So i'll be writing all the claims that they'll be tackling on sundays more insight into after after that but as as a race that well. We're going to hear from screen in the moment who department very strong danish team and he. He doesn't think it's going to be as hard as to flanders and so the race is Could be quite an an open race and you know we look at the the strong teams certainly the the belgians the danish and the italians and sunny. Cobb rally has to be a a strong contender. Even if even seen caleb ewan mention himself as a cider to win which suggests that and you could get quite a big group coming to the finish yet. It could be really interesting. It could be anything could happen. This is what. I enjoy about the world championship road race. When it's on one of these courses that you can't quite tell in advance how it's going to play out oversee the distances a big factor But if there's no real set piece repetitive. Serious climb as we have seen in recent editions. A anything could happen. If and his lining up alongside today gotcha run. Julian philippe matthew vendor pool. Premiums rogue lich sony code belly. It just shows you that the race could either come down. To some honest sprints or it will be showdown between the three wonders of the world. That's fine art van depaul elderly plus the stage races. Paul gotcha and rural glitch or it could be one of those ones where we're all left scratching our head to the end and wondering. Well how did they let that happen or sort of thinking back to one thousand nine hundred nine oscar prayer. His first world championship win. Wages clicked off the front and no-one went with him. That's the beauty of the world championships citizen. Lots of people like to see the rainbow jersey on the shoulders of a of a writer that can genuinely be considered one of the sort of moving monuments of the peleton in the current case. Judy and obviously the defending champion war the rainbow jersey with an awful lot of clout. Hasn't he would never say anything other than he's one of the finest rogers in the world but yeah it's it's going to be. I think tactically intriguing an interesting rice and you mentioned the danes. Richard line up looks on paper to be extremely strong. Particularly given that they have casper ashlin the to flanders winner. Magnus core of course was on fire at the walter and michael algren. Who on a cost like this. Could well be a writer to watch especially when those attacks start going. And there's a reluctance to to bring things back together not to mention. Mark patterson the world champion two years ago and i would also say mikhail honore has been writing really well in the last few weeks as well. They've got really really strong team. No obvious leader. you know. Several guys can win there and it was really interesting speaking to cast brass screen at the finish here from him now but you know he well. He writes the current quickstep and said that he would like the team to ride in in the way they do with numbers rather than leader onto right in a very attacking way as well again. I think just coping the the style of racing that that gets to current quickstep so many so many wins and let's hear cast green will be partly danish team had to say at the finish yesterday by the world's roadrace the sunday we have several cars to to play and obvious competitor for sure gonna be Belgians talents They have really really strong collective sports as well and then of a lot of good riders Spread out over the over the other nations. But i think the big nations are belgium and italy and which means we have to take some responsibility for the race which we are prepared to do so yeah i spent. I expect the fundraising hard race on something competitive flanders. I would say it's not. It's not as hard as lenders. If we had more laps around over. I would say it would probably have been hardest as our lenders but because we only have two laps there and one of them. Is this friday early in the race. I think it's gonna be less heart. Think whether it's gonna play a big role If it's raining The laptop and live. And it's going to be super hard because of all the corners city. That's really gonna line up the bunch and can easily make some gaps so Yeah the the weather is going to be a huge factor and something we have to follow. follow vericose. And in the coming weeks we have. We have a very fat hierarchy. Starting one we have. We have five guys. We free rose and nobody has a here Leadership like belgium for example. So i think we're going try to envoy a bit of a quick step taken Just to try to on are they are numbers and hope. We hope we have a a good situation. We did we more either than your nations. What was casper. Onscreen loyal. And i wouldn't. I wouldn't like to be in the position of of danish team in a way because they have all these writers on form. How on earth do you decide which should be protected. You know how how tight it should play to favor these all very different but also quite similar riders screen just super strong fourth in the time-trial yesterday at the tier. Find this year mind. This is a pretty fast finisher. Michael walgreens in red hot form and he conserve he can finish off. Beat sonic rally the weekend there so are just at the end of last week just an embarrassment of riches and really really hard to know. I mean when you look at the belgian team. We'll hear from ten to clark in the moment but they've gone obviously venar know again a very strong team but a very clear. Focus if you like and that might not might just be a An easier uneasy. Our plan to me for them. Well we'll hear from tim declared. Nah i mean obviously the l. tractor we see on the front for his team to commit quickstep. So much of a year and here in flanders he will be writing in a similar rule but for a different writer. I guess this is the man here in the red yellow and black jersey that you'll be working for the world yup okay. It's not a guy from from my team but Yeah i can almost say he's a he's a friend so he's a he's a colleague. I get along really well with so. That's also our also going to be a more easy to to turned The button on that right for him. If i wanted you peanut professional a long time but have you written a world championships. I never i. It's it's only one time. After twenty years i think so. It's nice to grab that opportunity to for the for my country. It's going to be pretty special isn't it. I mean what you know about the cool at the moment of and you had a good look. I've i've looked at. It's already younger profile. Needs to do a recon still. But i know it's gonna be a race between the hippies of students in leuven race like so Obama fail that's going to be Between those two yeah. It's gonna be exciting for sure and loss way. I mean it's a special judge. Isn't it the belgian national team jersey. The light blue with the find of color iconic in belgium as we feel from outside of belgium absolutely. I think it's a belgian. This is still one of the. Yeah the the really conscious about suckling lives so if you can represent that that's a nation in such a beautiful jersey. It's always something really special so just some extra motivation. Replace it with a version of the rainbow jersey. If you manage to help out win the talk show. That would be really really nice by the now. of course it's a different racists nominee always there for the kuni sepoy also pays you so that's that's normal but For one race in the year we change it. It's very much a home race for tim to clarke's rich because the race finished in london which is to klux Well the town where he was born so not just a f- laundry and home race but a hung town race for tim clark. It does interest me how the belgians will ensure that they keep wealth. Venar in contention for not capable of keeping himself in contention of course but you know. How do they play the remco avenue. Poll do they put him in some kind of move. Leon put the pressure on other teams. It's gonna be really interesting to see what they do knowing that. While we're not i mean you have to think is the outstanding favorite for the race icon. You had to rank people prior to the to the start run. All is the number one isn't he. I think so. I'll tell you who isn't in. My view is todd. char I i saw him at. The finish essay stopped briefly to speak. It's strange he. He did not have the air of a two thirds of fronts winner by and asked if he said i mean. It's kind of seeing him. Out of context like that and was was a bit strange in this levin kit with the usual entourage around him And having just done A quite disappointing right in the time. Trial for him as he said. And i think he's. He's feeling the fatigue bit at this stage of a season doesn't seem to be his best and is probably not one of the favorites for sunday's roadrace. It's worth mentioning. The british team isn't it. I mean they've got a very strong lineup as well. I mean hates us. Be on great form recently. Am tom pidcock. Who knows what kind of forum he's going to be in but they've got a couple of fast finish and mark cabin this jake's sure as well Fred right a very strong team. Indeed that they're putting in the race and could well have You know something to say giovanni benedetti who we had on the podcast in the vuelta wasn't italian now. A poll. he's writing for poland. Having just recently switched nationality. He's writing for poland in world championships and imagine not will be a special occasion for him interesting. Big money transfer to to poland. Well you'll be that you rich the weekend watching the road races and We'll be reconvening next week on. I'm sure yes i will. I'll be here. I'm I'm heading home tonight. And back on thursday on putting together over the course of this week Kind of an updated and improve our civil of flanders. No no no over five parts this time but no i saw something different. I mean you that your line on flanders series in two thousand seventeen and this feels like quite an important time for cycling flanders not least because the last couple of additions of the tour funds of being behind closed doors. And there's really a sense here that the funds are returning cycling on. I think here in fines anywhere else in the world. Cycling is a spectator sport of the along. The fans are not cyclists. They are. They are fans of cycling. And i'm not. That doesn't really happen to the same extent anywhere else and so the fans by the roadside. I've always been a a big important ingredient of bike racing. Here and funds is not coming by this this week. And i'm going to be speaking to people Well the fans the the people who run as classic some of the writers some of the people who run teams here is to get and to take the temperature is suppose of cycling flanders in two thousand nine hundred twenty one looking forward to that. Have writing writing. I did a did a ride this morning. And i i'll be back with my bike on thursay to take part in Unofficial event organized by the organizers here on thursday over one hundred kilometers writing all the all the claims of the world championship road races. So that will give me a cracking insight into exactly what writers will be confronting we can. You'll be fit enough to join lance armstrong on one of his tours in new yorker. Just thirty thousand pants just thirty thousand line or a place. Well if you'd like to sign up as a friend of the podcast this podcast. No problem is none of your money will go towards me anyway. Joining lonzo armstrong understanding. We call it the america. I understand that. The former wimbledon tennis champion richard cry. Check the big-serving dutchman who won i think in nineteen ninety-six has whether paid whether he's going along as a as a guest. I don't know apparently he's going to be riding with long santorum from your point. Nexus this big-serving scotsman will not be joining him. I i like big servings So that kind of works for me as well and well line the list not better turn my attention to the the women's time trial Before we go this week though we returned to the very sad and tragic news of the death of chris anchor sorenson. We said we wanted to hear really from brian. nygaard Who is dame worked with Chris sorenson for many years and considered him a very good friend. And so we thought we. We should With brian here here. About i'm chris anchor sorenson from somebody who knew very well well. Brian terrible news for danish cycling whole over the weekend with the deaths of chris. Anka sorenson tell me how did you know him. I got to know him. When the team i i worked for at the time. Consider taking him in the neo professional At the time. And that was. I think that the team was still cold. Cc at the time on maybe already. It's excellent account member. But he was obviously a writer that you could see physically because he was a very very skinny guy and then historically doesn't produce that many times so he could tell he was someone that had all these qualities. But i remember that i think we would sort of specifically looking at detroit denmark which actually has one stage. The woman pulled one this year and but christmas so nervous that he that he actually didn't ride that well that day but dan was by convinced that he had the good and he he was obviously really smart guy the time he was studying biology at university and and he was really sort of nut sort of the typical bike riding his mental outfit so it was donald keenum taking him on and then became quite obvious that he had i think even significantly better qualities as by the most people were aware of. Because you know when you main you're right and then if you're a good climber and you can say the same thing awhile. I wasn't that until he started facing outside of denmark weather hindu racists were many and plenty and really difficult that we we saw what christmas capable of. He was a very hard worker. What made him a good bike. Rider was his if education he he worked extremely hot for what he he achieved. And you know. I don't know about his results. In the by the he wasn't really badly the mystique for his captains but he also was able to win quite a few important races in intel and he was with the team team. Csc for a long time. Wasn't he so although not a prolific winner in the grand tours always always a figure in the mountain stages he wants one stage of. Jiro didn't in two thousand and ten but very aggressive rider in mountain stages. Yeah we'd really reid who wasn't afraid. Afraid taking chances and trying to like you know if if it was just a crazy case of a pure selection station the juicy he he he probably could finish among the twenty best time but he the big. Three's that he won. He won because he he showed initiative and took it on to to ride aggressively and going to break away. that's how he took his big stages. And i remember the one zero because i was at the time you look myself. And if sort of the thing in fighting which is a wonderful thing that you know you change teams but the the friends. You have a scattered all over all kinds of teams and geographical places. And i knew chris because he was living at the time and so was i. And you just meant that. You bound to travel to the same destination. And even if. I wasn't on the same team anymore. We we always kept in contact and the few that i wrote my i would. I would see at least one of the dangers ride and they would often be chris. I'm what was he like as a person. Yeah there you can probably hit me. Because that's that's the hottest boxer talk about when you when neon live gets torn away from you know from from you and when you know on a he's a he's a father and endure yourself and so am i. It's just s stakes this unbearable and he was first and foremost a father an effeminate men in my opinion events. I've seen him in very different world situations both as a bike ride but also we. I think we probably did commentating. I think on five hundred dollars a christian that also been traveling a lot you know at the tour and it sounds like a really easy to compensate but it's actually not as the class about preparation and and chris was just able to do all those things and he had so much energy and time left to really talk to his. Every day talked to his wife and one thing that distinguishes chris christie especially was that he he had the ability to never ever make his own problems anyone else's done but he was always the first to have other people if they had any he just brought happiness wherever he went. He was always really always in good spirits. Always in a good mood and that is one of the reasons why he was also such commentator. He was meeting always very enthusiastic about the race. It's always great sense of humor. It was very entertaining commentating within the nothing spectators of the tv. Fix have had the same feeling. And i remember saying to us in this. Who now we we. We did the commentating together. The three of us that we can never complain. Sometimes chris i mean the first year we did the tool. Chris was still a professional bike rider and he wrote every morning other than you know. Sadly that's also he. He left us by by doing recon news very important to him that he that he knew as much as possible about the cool that he was coming on but he was still a professional by so i think he rolled around three thousand kilometers that tour and he did a lot of full stage commentating which is awesome five dollars. Then the post studio where we will valuables well and we were so tired. But chris never complaint. That was how he was. He was just actually really really tuned into what he cared about in life and it was impossible. Let's feel and lastly i mean how. How's this news being taken in danish cycling and guess danish sport as a as a as a wider thing. I mean how. Chris an kosolin be remembered. Christmas really don't figure in denmark analysis. It's probably obvious. Everyone gets a huge botanist grown immensely in in denmark. And i think also. Thanks to the way that chris has been able to educate. You don't educate your spectators. You inspired him to be curious about sports and crystal sudden the probably the best that ever in endangered cycling commentary and and but he was also someone that people really like. You know he was just very very popular person. And it's just an incredible loss when you know when when someone that as just in the blink of an is is disappeared apart of seems like it stops and you don't really know how to start it again because it doesn't feel like it can go on in the same way when someone really important knitting and i think that's often the feeling we're having when we lose someone especially when we lose some and that we care about but also when it just happens in such a horrible way and obviously very unexpected issues. I think the morning across others bullets running in general. It's you know everyone from the from the prime minister to to all the people who but he did. Tv who who really say these days and it's really hard for me to think about how you know. I know a friend and colleague and someone else. I'll never forget but someone lost their father and someone goes to husband. Someone lost the sun. Someone someone that was there to them in in a completely different way that when you have families read understand the severity of of christie being in..

"A terrible terribly sad thing to get your head around the star of what should have been intended to be a celebrate three world championships and a reminder. I suppose we often talk about. Belgium is being in theory at least one of the safest places to ride your bike because the infrastructure here for cycling is incredible. I went by this morning on three quarters of the writers on segregated cycling paths. But you only need one thing to go wrong with a vehicle and And you know you're you're always Risk on a bike and and if somebody of anchor sorenson skill and experience can be killed all riding his bike then really any of us can and and that was the stark reminder of his death which is of no consolation to anybody whatsoever and it's just an incredible sadness and at the end of this episode. We'll hear from brian nygaard. Who some of you will remember most of you remember. Hopefully from arterial coverage. Brian worked with chris sorenson for many years on knew him very well. So we'll hear from brian on chris anchor sorenson at the end of the episode. Yes richard terribly. Sad news about kris. Anka soerensen jared italia stage winner of course in a very aggressive rider in the mountains sort of pure climate. Wasn't he well. The world championships went on today with the under twenty three men's time trial and danish winner. Johan price peterson. And i'm sure that before the men's rotation and perhaps some of the other races over the weekend The danish ride the whole peleton will pay tribute to chris. Anka soerensen and price peterson was very emotional at the finish and he explained afterwards. Press conference that you know anchor. Throwing some was very much in his thoughts and Some that costs brass screen said yesterday as well when he was he was suffering i in the time he was he was thinking of him and trying to to dig a bit deeper in his memory. If you like on. I don't know people might remember as well. We didn't have it on the twenty three or junior world titles last year. of course i'm two years ago. The lost twenty three time trial and in harrogate. You remember that price. Peterson was the writer. Who was kind of 'em i'd say he. He came off spectacularly in the time trial when he he rolled into what he thought was shallow standing water and it turned into almost a lake in the middle of the road. Remember that is incredible. Video footage of his bike being swept away and While he made up for that today by by winning the time trial here and it carries on an incredible run by the danes because mikhail won three titles in a role of under twenty three title and johann price peterson continues run the cycling podcast powered by cpa sapiens energy management.

If you're an athlete or a coach go to super sapiens. Don't calm nine lionel. I know you were studying the time-trial intently. I mean it was. You know we talk by being a golden age of cycling. Town don't win. The applies in time trialing to think and it was a real thing between dr and ghana. Apprai- thrilling finale. To two time thought with those two being so close the last two writers off and it really coming into a race between them. It was a showdown between the pair of them. But it was. I thought it was a really interesting time. Trial the way unfolded i know. Sometimes i'm a little bit down on time. Trialing as a television spectacle. But i do like a championship time. Trial where everything is on the line. The gold silver and bronze-medal was there on the line. I think perhaps in grand tours sometimes as a risk with particularly long time they can do so much damage in general classification. You end up feeding a little bit flat at the end of the day. Thinking has completely altered the shape of the race whereas when it is just a championship. I'm an absorbing watcher. Not particularly enjoyed the fact that ed napoleon had the hot seat for so much of the afternoon is some really good time. Trolleys came in and didn't topple his time. I mean if we just go back to the start of the early starters an italian rider matteo bre set the fastest time and then dime bigham of great britain when foster. But he didn't. I don't think even got to sit in the hot seat. He may well have done but he but he's back side possibly only rested on the luxurious plastic chair for a few seconds before maxwell shied came in he was the next finisher and then stefan who i thought was an outside shop for a medal. He lied and before he knew. Every poll came in and blew bickers time away. didn't he. forty two seconds quicker and then we saw the old man. Tony march and here. We talk about in the end of this part because he announced his retirement on the eve of the championships or confirmed these retirement. At the end of the season tony malkin came in in second place behind. Nepal cascarino denmark then pushed martin down a place and then it was all about the big too because he said steffen kuehn. Didn't didn't excel on this kind. Of course and well did well for go out to quick. I think about seven or eight seconds up on ghana at the first checkpoint and then they were split by only nine point eight four of a second the second checkpoint but still narrowly ahead but it was over your at gannett judge and had a bit more in the tank over the latter stages of the course when he hit the line. You know it was. It was kinda hard time. He came into the finishing straight to clock. He had one and he had time to take your hand off the ball and powerful and punch but it was close wasn't the only six seconds in a rio nip and tuck battle between two obviously very good time charlie's but perhaps on that flat course. It was the pure specialism of philip again. Another told over while venar. Obviously no slouch against o'clock but perhaps even more out around writer than ghana alba's surprised that ghana was so confident to punch their like. Am i i think throughout. I check quickest and then i'm gonna was was closing all the time. And he judged perfect and he said afterwards that he really quite consciously east off on the power of at the star it was quite technical the star and he wanted to write into you know he is. He is the best time trolleybus in the world..

That would be good. Yeah three cup copies or we can just we can just ask you so listen we i mean invisible. Where the where the talk of the day. I was messaging our friend. brian nygaard. Who joins us at the jiro. Of course a pro dane and he has been quite unhappy. It's fair to say The way that you movies have ridden and support are in support of unicef finger. Who in the absence of premature chocolate has emerged as move vista's main contender. I suggested last week that they were deliberately playing down his chances in order to re remove pressure from him not put pressure on him and perhaps to somehow implicitly poop pressure and chuck. I don't. I don't think that's the case i it is like they are fighting this tour on different fronts there. No it's not old for finger certainly van however at the finish he did say he didn't mean to go in the breakway that once he was there he thought he would go for the king of the mountains points because he was there and he might as well he also said his coach is not in favor of him writing the tour the way that he is making it really hard from south with tokyo and the olympics coming up. He doesn't think he should be digging. So deep in chasing stage wins king of the mines points etc etc and. He said that he starved disagrees. He thinks he needs. It's hard three weeks as he can possibly get which is why he's giving himself and i mean i was surprised to see him going full goss for these kingdoms points today. Actually the finish also said something. I know that usually strategies are actually decided you know afterwards after the stage you know you look back. That's what we're trying to do when actually in real action you know you have no no plans whatsoever but while advance suggested that defied that yet three guys up up the road men that one could wait for unicef in a gun in case of trouble. They didn't they didn't have to do that. But if you if you look at what any gonna. They actually did that The of euro and borrowed and fumbled actually stopped at the top of the climb to wait for the carapace group. So obviously this was a plan move from ineos grenadiers. So there's no reason to not to believe that you movies at this option. Might as well that evan. To three guys in the front men won't could let himself get dropped in case of trouble and go back to help us vinegar in which case whatever the outcome is what it is we so while you butter. It's outs in the climbs for the popular jersey and we so sept- koos go for a stage victory saying the end being the window. God always in the same place in third looking like one of the most serious. You know rivals for polka tra. Sep cus wins the second stage win for.

"Brian Nygaard. Where are we originally lost? Because Daniel is not here, long. Do preserved and nervous times. We we bid farewell to Daniel today at the train station and very emotional, wasn't it? Yeah. Definitely at our end of it at the club. With a splendid Western shores of Lago, Maggiore. And we are sitting within eyesight of, I guess your first choice as the guest at the podcast. Yes. I mean, were incredible coincidence and he'd been lined up as you're well as Daniel's replacement or sorry. You've been lined up as Francois Thomas's replacing his friends were supposed to be with his, of course. Patrick lafary. This is at least a second time. We've been podcasting in his vicinity, but he's sitting over there. The sunshine, the kind of quick step in the hotel, right beside us here. So we've chosen our situation pretty well. I think if they were one of the stories of the day weren't they? Absolutely. And you always know that if you're sitting at a restaurant or if you're checking into a hotel where you out of the corner of your eyes, but Petroglyph ever you you probably in a nicer place and and especially here, he he's very familiar with Logan majority when he took over the the my pay structure and I'm quite certain that the service course was just around the corner from here off. Looks very comfortable over there basking in the sunshine. They always looks quite comfortable. But Brian, I mean, there was a time when you mixed in his circles as a team boss, you know, home now look at you podcasting podcast on your way around, Italy. But can't you can't? You tell that I'm a, I'm a happier person for it, and I was just, I was just thinking, I think with, I guess I'm doing okay. So far, they haven't had a phenomenal generates here, Fallen? Yeah. But if I guess, if I walked over to Patrick now and say, hey, Patrick, if if you were to decide, would you rather be the general manager of a Vineyard in fact, in California with you, would you be team manager of underperforming Engagement with the dogs? Fired shots fired as dangerous talk when they can probably hear us. I mean, they're not doing the Raiders then quite back yet. Will certainly be hoping to hear from James Knox later today because while we saw more of James today than we, probably seen of the whole gyro at the front front of the race, at least wage. We have to begin tonight podcast with recognition and have been sent a couple of messages from our dear departed friend. Telling me that I have to mention this in the podcast tonight. But of course, Daniels 18 pics for the stage. Each day we've been, I've been tending to ignore those when he's done really well. But he did, do he called first. Second, third and fifth today. Got the order Sports on and she got 12 of the 18. No bad. Very impressive. And I can use my EZ at this point than a guarantor but still getting it that ride wouldn't be easy for anyone and and it was definitely not that he was just blossomed out and he he was spending quite a lot of time when we first drove, I'm hoping to drop him off at the train station. It was very focused on on those eighteen. He was agonizing I'm hoping he's going to carry on doing that for the remaining two stages of the only two stages left and always been the multi-tasker a freebie. Yeah. Well, let's hope so, cuz I'm certainly not in a position to pick 18 for each stage and there was an air of sadness. Yep. In the general today as well. And we lost the claim of the motor Oni, which is very close to where we are now, because, well, about three or four kilometers away from here, the weekend, there was an all-out full cable car crash. They killed fourteen people, only one Survivor of five year old boy, whose parents grandparents and younger brother were all killed. I mean, wage because we're here and you know, the route was altered. Obviously the writers all gave their prize money to give up the prize money, from the stage to go to a fund to help the bereaved families. You know, reading about this today was really upsetting. It was it's one of these stories that I'd may be avoided reading about because of the details and the wage scale of a tragedy is so awful, but yeah. Very very, very sad atmosphere around that obviously today, and the Giro paid its respects really are supposed dead. It leaves you just lost for words. And I just think the gesture of the Peloton the the words today by race director mode. Where when you, when he came and and put flowers on the motor own. I think that's all she did. She has a big heart. And this is a tragedy that goes beyond the bike race. And and I think it was right decision not to go up on the climb today. Absolutely. There is a stunning setting here, isn't it? Brian, and we drove down the the hill that the they went up from the Lakeside so I have on the on the, in the rod Burkett was uncategorised claim. But it was, it was, it was decline. Thought it was. Yeah, lots of lots of hairpins on the way out and my point in the race, the six-man. Breakaway was away our old friend, lucky Larry warbasse was in it. And, but the stage was 166 kilometers from here, to Grasso has our pronunciation you more forgiving than Daniel on this. Absolutely, I didn't Flinch when you, when you said you almost didn't Flinch, I mean I saw a very a flicker, it's the sun in my eyes off. Liquor in your eyes, when I said the RPD Mera. First time, the jury has been there, when it's definitely won't be the last know. It was a great crime, wasn't very tough egg. In Bernal had beaten to age bracket and perhaps that paid off. I mean it was very interesting the way he wrote it but will come to that later. A real battle to get into the break away today, it was a good hour before it did get away very quick start to the stage 53 kilometers covered in the first hour. I mean, we've heard from Larry warbasse, how hard he's been trying to get into breakaways and, you know, the team has a hashtag. Hashtag, pray for a long time. And finally, he made it today, and it was a decent-looking break away on the small side part. Smart, Christian was there as well, Giovanni aliotti and Nicolas Venture Booty song, Andrea Pascal from Russia and Quinton Harmons was there as well. I'm a good climber. It was a reasonably strong briefly, but they never got too far up Thursday. Foods and a big reason for that, was that the two teams to kind of quick step and bikeexchange were really committed today to bringing it back to allow their top two writers job done, Simon Yates to battle out for the stage when and, and we saw the sense of that. And then well, let's here from Larry warbasse, no, show me about his day in the Breakaway. Yeah, I mean, we thought today I might not be off today but we knew we had to try for the break away anyway and like, for me, I I've been trying every day, so I was really happy to get in. Finally, it was a big fight. It took I think 55k before the break away. I went and yeah, I was really happy to be in and everyone rode really well, everyone like was working hard and you know, we we really enjoyed our best to stay out front but you know with the motivation a bike exchange and quickstep behind, there wasn't really a whole lot. We could do with only six, guys. So we gave it our all. But yeah. We needed probably to 3 minutes more at the bottom of the time if we wanted to try to win the game. It's not, it's disappointing, but tomorrow's another day. I mean, you could see already at the depart, they were, you know, lined up behind the car to control the race. They were following all the moves. It didn't want anything to Big going-away, you know, I think neither of them want to stage yet. And so, with two of the strongest guys in the race and maybe noticing the other day that burn all had as your song. And now I think they were looking for blood. I don't even know what happened up front but.
