So what about coming third?

lol fair, though that was after a group reformed on the descent


really i'm more thinking the infamous Ax-3-Domaines stage which- if Jumbo raised eyebrows this tour, that stage in 2013 was full five alarm fire bells and claxons.

They literally broke Roglic's bike during the inspection so I think the DS has a right to be livid.

It damaged his crankset, a literal 2 minute fix. Thats no excuse for punching someone.

To be clear, he himself has said he lost his poo poo because they took the crankset out. The whole thing loving stinks.

He said the bicycle was damaged in the process of removing the crankset, not specifically that the crankset was damaged. He also didnít punch anyone, unless screaming is now considered punching.

ďPrimoěís bicycle was damaged during this dismantling. Despite this incident, I should have kept my cool and approached the UCI Commissioner respectfully. I regret not doing this,Ē Zeeman wrote on Twitter. ďAfter this incident, I immediately apologized to the UCI commissioner concerned, who also accepted my apologies.
I am devastated, but our yellow dream lives on.Ē

Van vleuten abandons the giro. Next two riders separated by 15s, with two stages left. Should be an exciting finish now.

This is a very de Gendt style breakaway. Long, solo, doomed to fail and confusing everybody on commentary as to why the team DS is letting it continue.

It's making Bora work, if he stays away to the intermediate sprint he reduces the amount that Sagan can get back, what's to be confused about
