He’s now riding a teammate’s bike apparently.

got back onto the peloton, changed to another bike and then stacked it immediately.

Good race, Sagan looked like death at the end, had a fiver on SVM but he didn't quite have the legs even without the mechanical issues.

That's 4 monuments for Gilbert
(who's been hoping of winning all 5 for a few years now).
San Remo is damn hard to win though. He's going to have to gear his full season preparation towards SR the next years.
Saw mention of Politt attacking in the last feed zone, rewatched that bit and, sure enough he accelerated through that section as everyone else slowed to grab things. The next shot is him hammering along while people are slinging bidons over their shoulders.
Feels a bit off to me, even if it is a more aggressive one day race.

Jeez, what kind of a superman is Mathieu Van der Poel?
I remember watching his Dad, Adri, going up against Seán Kelly in the 80s but Mathieu is going to eclipse him easily. And probably Kelly too at this rate.
Yep, today's race was very exciting – must have been the black shorts.
Amstel Gold last 50k on rn, almost forgot it was on.
Edit: well, glad I didn't miss that, cracking finish.
VDP drags a group back to leading pair, 1min up the road with 5k to go, then wins a 500m sprint

Oh, my, God. Genuine adrenaline rush from that finish, cannot believe he dragged them all up single handedly from 20 seconds back but actually could then believe he’d then go on to win the sprint against everyone. Wow.
I'm not sure why I came in without catching it, but I'm impressed at the spoiler-free posts!
Wow. What a beast.
