Imagine watching Youtube cycling content other than Lanterne Rouge doing a 40 minute analysis of a Tour of Turkey sprint stage.

I don't know anything about the Vegan Cyclist because I don't care about cycling influencers or whatever, but it's interesting to watch because Jeremiah Bishop is on a totally different level of fitness and technical riding and just dragging the Vegan Cyclist around

Ouch. Looks like the white line was just a bit too slippery when he started the lean?

That's a generous 38 seconds meanwhile back to the peloton.

The commentary is so delayed from the video, at least for me.

Deep analysis of the Wout vs Pidcock finish measurement in Amstel Gold:
https://www.tglyn.ch/blog/amstel_gold/
One thing it doesn't address is whether the camera is stationed at the finish line or not. If it is, then it favors the more distant rider.
Like if the camera were aimed 20deg to the left, the background rider could be losing by a wheel or more but still cross the videoed line at the same time as the foreground rider.

I'm incredibly over this discussion. It was insanely tight and the rules allow for the photo to not be aligned exactly with the black line.

An absolute shambles at the Romandie. They neutralised the descent but slowed the Peloton down so much they lost at least 90 seconds to the break.

Now we get to see if Ineos can pull back 4.20 in 9km.

53, so he needs to win by about 40 seconds to beat Ineos and 50 to beat Soler, assuming the others come home 2nd and third.

Yeah, but then they started lying about it, saying they double checked it and everything and that the camera was exactly on the lin, which it clearly wasn't. The UCI is such an incredibly incompetent organisation....
