Finally watched the Gent Wevelgem coverage.
I fear that my enthusiasm for Sep VanMarke may be misplaced. Those rolling roads 14k on the run in did for him; had he worked with G after Terpstra attacked when rejoining the group the podium was on. Allowing himself to be dropped with Debusherre and the energy used in the 2 chasing 4 is what left him dying in the last
Hat to G for his work and vocal management of the final selection.
Hat+ to Paolini for sheer doggedness. 38…!
