How is the tour so far

It's badass Pogacar is on the Slovene Sauce and took like three minutes out of everyone on one of the best mountain stages I've ever seen since the Rasmussen/Landis years

It's so nice to see cycling discussion finally moving on from hidden motors and back to clandestine doping programs.

I think Cav's performance is more suspect than Pog's, but they're both benefiting enormously from their primary competitors being out of the race already.

Cav did have a lingering health problem/dogshit team support over the past few years though, which probably makes more difference than any PED you could name

Cav is being delivered to the line by an absurd lead out vs a completely depleted field. He also has the decency to struggle with high mountain stages like sprinters are meant to. Rather than, you know, finishing on the podium.

WvA placing second in the sprint on Tuesday and then winning yesterday is way more sus than Cav Imo. Cav is doing what a sprinter does when he's got a good team backing him up.

Sagan's "knee pain" does not look like bollocks for once, no wonder he hasn't been competitive

Cav's not wearing his green skinsuit and they didn't send anyone to bring him back to the bunch , so I guess DQS had no intention of trying to make today a sprint.
