    Maybe this year non-Europeans can start pronouncing Ardennes correctly.

    • Nathan

      Perhaps when the French stop referring to Australie? (though secretly I quite like it)

  • jules

    I wouldn’t rule out Gilbert. I had my broken finger pinned and it was pretty minor – wasn’t even done under a general anesthetic. doubtless he’ll be straight on the trainer. is it possible to win a classic with only stationary work? ;)

    • De Mac

      #zwifteffect says it can be done!

    • Hyun-ji Song

      Did you forget Paris Roubaix already? Hayman broke his arm 5 weeks ago and was only on the trainer. Amazing!

      • jules

        totally slipped my mind!

        • Damien

          lol

    • Michele

      You carry a can of pepper spray around with you too Jules?

  • Pete

    Gerro and Bling will mark each other out of this, trying to prove who is Top Dog at OGE

    • Geez, I hope not, for their sake.

      • jules

        I would hazard a guess that there have been a number of high level management meetings at OGE to develop a lean strategy for ensuring their competency pipelines do not intersect in this way, leading to sub-optimal value-add at races where these 2 are participating.

          I doubt their ability to synergize effectively and will have to crunch the numbers but feel the Pareto Principle will not be seen here. Maybe after the current vertical slice we can put our heads together for some task analysis and see whether the Sagan megaproject might be a better use of our time.

    • Mike K

      My concern as well. It may appear that OGE are having a Sky moment and are caught between the ageing star and the bright future. One hopes that Mat White’s people skills can keep this somewhat happy team together. I think that Impy will work for Gerro if he has to choose between the two. I assume that White will make Hayman the road captain and he will sort it out. If OGE don’t win because these two don’t work together then the BSP will be interesting.
      I still find it difficult to think that Matthews is only 25. The Geelong Worlds seem so long ago.

      • bc

        Hayman will be minutes back and won’t be able to sort anything out on the road in the final, he just isn’t suited to AGR. They’ll have Albasini & Impey, maybe Juul Jensen. If it’s a bunchie we all know who the faster rider is.

    • Pete

      I agree Pete, why race them together?

    • Michele

      Could be a GVA / Gilbert vs. Gerro / Bling mark off.

      Bring it on.

      • Michael Sproul

        It’s bad that I can imagine all 4 of ’em in one big line across the road at the finish full on elbows out styleee…
