on the bright side I think Paris-Nice is like literally the only sporting event running right now

the snooker in gibraltar is on but they don't have enough referees so the players have to replace the balls themselves on some of the tables.

https://www.uci.org/inside-uci/press-releases/uci-statement-concerning-dylan-groenewegen-(jumbo-visma)

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) strongly condemns the dangerous behaviour of rider Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Wisma), who sent Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quickstep) into the barriers a few metres from the finish, causing a collective crash at the end of the first stage of the Tour of Poland.

Groenewegen was disqualified from the race by the commissaires' panel.

The UCI, which considers the behaviour unacceptable, immediately referred the matter to the Disciplinary Commission to request the imposition of sanctions commensurate with the seriousness of the facts.

Our Federation is wholeheartedly with the affected rider

uci not pulling their punches

e: nope he gave it up once before in 2015

lost it to greipel in 15 (stage 10), and cavendish in 16 (stages 3, 6-9). in both cases he reclaimed before the end of the race.

Wait I thought he held it *exactly* by tying in points with Bennett but having a better general classification time?

Edit: Also, isn't the finish today for polkadot points? I think the green for the day is decided?

hilly stage so there are max 30 points for stage win (vs 50 on flat or 20 on high mountain).

Griefor posted:

You guys are right. Guess I never noticed you got those points since there's never any sprinters in the top 20 of those stages anyway.

they change the rules every couple of years anyway. wouldn't surprise if they did do something like that.

What the hell rear end kind of finish was that.

Also, Alaphilippe might've lost his yellow jersey because of the people who took the bonus points ahead of him?

no, he had 17 seconds on everyone except yates and hirschi who he finished ahead of. max time bonification is ten seconds.

Surely getting a GC contract for a team next year, incredible form so far this year.



In the end not the most explosive stage but hugely informative. Bernal looked weak, isolated with 3 jumbo visma riders around him and got out climbed but alaphilppe. Pogacar looked very comfortable so maybe it's going to be a duel of the slovenians this year? Love kirby but i don't know why he keeps thinking miguel angel lopez is ever going to do anything.

kirby is convinced that simon clarke is going to win milano-san remo every year. he's a loving moron.

superman had apparently a mechanical with 5k to got today. but still came in the main group. which was good going.
