Advantage to Remco in day one of Roglič vs Evenepoel, but only just

Stage one of Paris-Nice 2024 ended in a sprint, as expected, but that didn't stop some ripples in the GC earlier in the stage

Depending on their personality, other GC riders at the 2024 Paris-Nice might either be annoyed about the focus being almost completely on Remco Evenepoel (Soudal-Quick Step) and Primoz Roglic (Bora-Hansgrohe) or instead be happy to have all the attention focused elsewhere while they ride under the radar and hope for a podium.

Side note: Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) is looking very sharp, both mentally and physically, so he could be a wildcard for the win. Especially if Remglic cancels itself out.
