Yeah Good luck to him!
A tiny frontal surface area seems to be Cav's main advantage. Short little arms, narrow shoulders, powerfull mid-section and powerful short legs. Couple that with fantastic technique, and uncanny ability to read a sprint. He seems to always make the right decisions, lead-out or not! He can be 30 riders back, boxed-in with 1km to go, with no leadout, and can still win!
Noticed in stage 2 when Cav went head to head with Greipel and won, just how much bigger and less aero Greipel was front-on in comparison. Griepel looked twice the size!
Also on the Champs-Elysees was interesting seeing Sagan make a late surge from way back in shelter. As soon as he went out into the wind his faster speed and greater momentum was instantly nullified. Within a split second he was no faster than Cav. Power - resistance = speed. With this equation Cav will always win.
Anyway a bunch sprint favours the NZ team (all 2 of them
) so I hope we can get a tow on the back of the major players. But I don't see them there at the end unfortunately.
