Olympic men’s road race predictions

In Olympics, Pinarello, Team Sky by client1531820 Comments


The Olympic Road Race is tomorrow and it could be a remarkable double for our man Chris Froome.  Although, he isn’t our only hope. With 3 proven riders able to climb and two diesel engines in the team it could be glory!!

The course is effectively two hilly circuits and a flat dash along the Rio coastline. Stannard and Cummings will no doubt have high workloads along the coast nullifying or chasing any dangerous looking moves. Then it will be over to Geriant Thomas, Adam Yates and Chris Froome to follow and make the moves in the hills. Two short climbs, one maxing out at 10% the other at a leg shattering 25%!

We are backing the Brits all the way! Chris Froome to go solo, but then my predictions for the Tour weren’t great!!!
