Apparently the dude that gave Roglic that good push after the mechanical was a former ski-jump teammate? Wow

We're not bidding for another olympics this century, they're cutting funding to everything anyway, and nobody in the govt thinks of sport as anything other than a financial exercise, so it ain't surprising.

Tomorrow, our nation will sit on the throne of the world. This is not a figment of the imagination, but a fact. Tomorrow we will lead the world, Allah willing.



I hate when the last real stage of a grand tour is a time trial, it takes all the reaction, team dynamics, and general drama out of the defining stage of the race. There should really be another mountain stage after any TT before the tour finishes.

I was shouting at the TV for final TT of the '20 Tour and the '23 Giro, and god knows for the Giro at least there was not a lot of that. So while intellectually I might think there should be something more, it seems that in practice a final ITT can be good. It just needs to go up a very steep hill.

Agreed, having that bike change for the steep hill adds another opportunity for a gently caress up or snatching a few seconds if you do it right

Professional idiot/grifter Eric Feigl-Ding has claimed that Roglic wore a mask for the whole of the Giro, including the TT, if anyone sees stuff about masks and cycling pop up on social media and wonders why
