I just figure they're all working so hard they aren't really thinking clearly, at least for the thing where they celebrate a lap early. Getting beat on the line because you've thrown your hands up is hard to explain but always funny so I'm in favor of it.

Apparently a barrier blew in to the road and took a couple guys out. Italians inventing new ways to injure riders.

I love how commentators always put disclaimers on the supertuck. DEFINITELY DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME THESE ARE HIGHLY TRAINED PROFESSIONAL RIDERS.

Someone is going to end up dead when they hit a bump at 70kph and can't control it sitting on the top tube

bianchi revealed the climbing/lightweight frame that presumably GreenEdge will be using next year, and it's carbon black with "stealth" black decals instead of celeste. i am going to turn into the joker

Jumbo used these this year didnít they? Something about not having the layer of pigmented paint saves a couple dozen grams. The most marginal of gains

The actual rule is apparently: "The rider shall normally assume a sitting position on the bicycle. This position requires that the only points of support are the following: the feet on the pedals, the hands on the handlebars and the seat on the saddle."

Seems completely objective and Iím sure will never lead to controversy.

Fun stage.

It's incredible how deep MDVP can go. I'm almost worried for the guy, I halfway expect him to just expire leaning on the barricade after he finishes a race.

Pog is probably doped to the gills but so is every other professional athlete and at least he's fun to watch. The years of a final selection of 10 guys riding up a mountain with 4 sky riders on the front neutralizing everything were just incredibly boring and I'll take this any day.

I mean he won the Grio this year and finished top 10 in the Vuelta, I don't think it's fair to say he's fading just yet. If he can get his back right there's plenty of time to chase some more wins given that he's only 24. Not sure ISN is the place to do it but :shrug:

Maybe he just misses Froomey
