Cycling doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to testing so a third of the peloton probably has COVID.

That would be really dangerous with so many of them being asthmatic.

According to UCI regulation, section 5.1, "deviation from the chosen line that obstructs or endangers another rider or irregular sprint (including pulling the jersey or saddle of another rider, intimidation or threat, blow from the head, knee, elbow, shoulder, hand, etc.)" will be punished by a 200CHF fine, a points deduction equal to the points gained by the stage winner, a 30-second time deduction and relegation to last place in the rider's group.

Wout, being new to road sprinting, left a lane open next to the barriers.
Sagan took it and asserted himself.
That sanction/relegation is pretty bullshit if you ask me.

It didn't seem that terrible but after what happened to Jakobsen in Poland you have to think they're extra sensitive to it.

Yeah it was not the worst sprint infraction but in the context of recent events there's no way he wasn't getting relegated

I see enough drifting from Wout just as Sagan closes to warrant that shoulder shove.

After the shove, Sagan goes straight for a bit and then leans left a touch.
Wout moves left pretty much in tandem and only does a half-hearted throw. It looked like he saw Bennett coming in and didn't want to risk anything at the line. Even if he threw well, he'd already lost too much speed to edge Sagan.

I initially saw Sagan's post shove riding as intentional lane blocking, but now it looks at worst intentionally borderline.

If Jakobsen did what Sagain did, he would still have his own teeth.

I just found out there is a 90kg rider in the tour, Max Walscheid just became my new favorite rider.

If the TdF organizers want to prioritize rider safety, how about:

1) Not having those perpendicular triangular foam advertising signs on the fences?
2) How about setting up two layers of barriers to keep idiot fans from leaning over with their phones? (this happens at every single race)
