Can’t criticise Patrick Lefevere’s winning mentality | The crushed dream of Christian Prudhomme
Sir Bradley Wiggins returns alongside Matt Stephens and Anders Mielke to dissect the first three stages of the Tour de France.
Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl doubled up over the first three stages – with successes for Yves Lampaert and Fabio Jakobsen – while BikeExchange–Jayco’s Dylan Groenewegen collected the final stage in Denmark ahead of the rest day and the race heading to France.
Mielke revealed that the lack of crosswinds on the Great Belt Bridge will have left director of the Tour Christian Prudhomme disappointed with a dream crushed.
Wiggins, Stephens and Mielke look at Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team’s stunning start to the 2022 edition of the race.
Patrick Lefevere had come in for some criticism for leaving Mark Cavendish out of the Quick-Step line-up. However, Stephens added that Cavendish has no issue with Fabio Jakobsen or his selection for the race, but hinted that clear communication regarding selection was a little lacking.
While Lefevere is a polarising character – who should not be immune to criticism - his winning mentality is beyond reproach, adds Stephens.
The guys also talk Groenewegen’s emotional win, and “the classiest act in the world on a bike” Wout van Aert.
Wiggins re-lives the Grand Depart in the UK, and there is special praise for fans from Denmark after the opening three stages.
