y'all are mean. It's true, they were an astonishingly dysfunctional team for more than 2/3 of the season, but do those best team awards mean nothing to you monsters?

I can't bring myself to hate any of them as individuals but holy poo poo did whoever was in charge of team chemistry do a bad job.

Dombrowski! A feather in the cap for Virginia cycling

I think he still has all the strava KoMs in a 100 mile radius of Marshall. Nice to see him finally get a stage.

Should be more of a punishment than that, IMO. If we could all see it coming as spectators, how inattentive must he have been?

I can't help but feel that saying "you're our GC guy on your first race longer than a week, good luck and also please don't have any meltdowns in front of the entire cycling world" is maybe not the greatest developmental strategy.

Why tf would you ever root for Valverde

e: is he on the list of this threads list of cheaters oh but it's ok for him like contador?

He was the most straightforward guy besides Carapaz in the Movistar documentary and he has powerful PEDs old man energy, so as an old man myself I'm allowed to like him and laugh with him at the concept of teamwork.

e: I hope Bernal is OK, I like him too

If he doesn't fall off his bike before then, I doubt he gets past the second rest day.

Downside, Bob and Phil (and ads). It looks like I'll need to bust out a VPN etc. to get good commentary.

If you have Comcast you get the Peacock stuff free, McCrossan is boring but not bad

Oh, that's good to know. What I read seemed to suggest the Peacock stuff was the same as the NBC.

Mind you, maybe I'd miss the comedy of Phil attempting to identify what team the broken Colnago (with a single digit race number, and prominently labelled "Laengen" and "UAE") could possibly belong to. Initial guesses were "My God, Ineos"! No, Jumbo-Visma!"

Unless they can fly out a spare leg I doubt Froome starts tomorrow.

I've always wondered what deal is with Ventoux's biome that it's always bare like that.
I wondered too. Apparently it used to be forested, but the trees were cut down in the medieval period for shipbuilding. The soil blew away and we're left with the bald top. So says wikipedia, anyway.

Sorry, Iím new to serious Tdf watching:
Do they not all have the same spec TT bike?
They all have to be race legal, but they're by no means identical.

The break has 20 minutes, and now I'm going to have to stay up to find out if Peter Sagan's brother is going to be waving a golden helmet in everyone's face for the next 4 years.

He's celebrating by winning today's stage (and being in the overall lead) at the Tour de Pologne.

No bones broken they say, so he might be able to come back if he hasn't torn anything. Still, Worlds is just a month away.

e: apparently he did bust his collarbone, so that's probably it for this year.

Bernal had the white jersey for a couple of weeks at the vuelta, and was grown up enough to not be worried about losing it. I don't think he's even remotely done as a rider. I guess he feels he'll clearly be the GC guy at ISN, but I dunno, I don't feel the support will be what he wants.
