They do not speculate. Nor do they advise. they win And they deserve well in the first change. Did Tadej Pogacar in Baetica, he answered Remco Evenepoel in the Emirates and Jonas Vingegaard put the cake on the Galician cake. This Saturday, in one of the first great classics of the season, already Another shone in the cycling stars: Tom Pidcock. The Briton, in true “Pogacar style” in 2022, put in a stellar performance to win his first Strade Bianche record. The circuit moved 50 km from the finish line, leaving the rest of the favorites especially a . Mathieu van der Poel those who attempted it, having no legs, escaped by a perilous descent, and in the last stragglers, they escaped by an imperial tune. Margarita Ineos (23 years old) achieves two victories at the same time for the first time and completes her victories. then challenges, also in Italian territory: Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo. Valentine Madouas and Tiesj Benoot accompanied him on the podium, while Pello Bilbao He finished as the best Iberian (7th).
We had to wait for the arrival of the first sectors on the ground to compose the shot, in which the Spanish cycle was well represented by the youth given the brilliance by Iván Romeo (19 years old). Together with Movistar Sven Eric Bystrom (Intermarché) and Alexander of March (Jayco), he made the journey, agreed with the peloton until the maximum return of almost 6 minutes. With 70 km to go, when arriving in the region of St. Martin in Grania demanding five-star, the race began to explode. Soudal Lived Step hardened his way and reached the first meters of the ground that Carlos Rodríguez is completely off the hook; one of the best Spanish things.

Albertus Bettiol He made his bet from afar Andreas Bagioli while the platoon stood. After the second, after sliding in this dirt, the third came in the discord: Pidcock. It wasn’t one of his viral workouts, but the Brit once again showed his skill on the descent to leave the two Italians behind and catch Bystrom and De Marchi. The gap opened for half a minute and Van der Poel saw the wolves’ ears. He fell asleep, but could not get out, and left all the Gertrudes following him. The horse had gone…
Pidcock, without the aid of Bystram and De Marchi, gained ground, while Van der Poel’s dwarfs grew. A new cut has been generated, with similar big names Mohoric, Bilbao, Benoot, Walter, Kron, Simmons, Madouas, Rui Costa, Formolo… Wellens (untimely breakdown) and Alaphilippe (missing leg) had long since said goodbye to their options. When the last sectors reached the gravel, as expected, Pidcock was left alone, a run to which Benoot tried to respond with an attack from a distance 22 km from the end. Even if it was to be reintegrated after Britain, it lacked organization and no one took the glove. After a huge victory in last year’s Tour de France at the top of Alpe d’Huez, Pidcock continues to move forward.
