I don't see what it has to do with Sky, it's only Moscon who is involved.
What's wrong with using twitter in an important matter like that ? That's the best way to get attention.

That's always the same riders (Cavendish, Sagan, Bouhanni, Moscon) who are causing crashes or behave badly. Why not make them stop ?
For example after Cavendish made a wrong move Viviani crashed and could have lost his gold medal in the track .


It's a bit crazy that you mention Sagan in the same sentence as Bouhanni or Moscon.

By all accounts, just about everyone loves Sagan.

Sagan was an asshole before Specialized's marketing department turned him into "Rad Dude"

There are quite a few pro's who do not care for Sagan at all so his marketing agency hasn't changed everyones mind, that's for sure.

I doubt the spec marketing team really care what other pro's think. They're not buying bikes.

Those pro's also have fan's. And when Sagan cut's off/bodychecks/harasses another rider once again, he's losing some fans here and there. He's an extremely talented rider, but also a bit of a spoiled brat unfortunately.

Sorry, misunderstood what you were saying. Good point though. Curiously I just went to the Specialized youtube page, and almost everything feat. PS sky rockets in views. Race Reporter Ruby the difference is outrageous. Marketing team is doing wonders

That was one nasty crash of Laurens de Plus, hope he didn't fall too deep and isn't injured too much.

Team have said he's basically ok. Must have managed to grab a tree halfway down or something!

Bit disappointed with the lack of fight from such a talented group to let Nibali build his lead so much in between the two climbs, but it was a hella strong move to make the gap in the first place and trdemark descending. Great way to win a race.

Great race and great win from Nibali :thumbup: :thumbup:
And Alaphilippe managed 2nd. He will scream after a victory next year.

The winter season can come now... 8)

Wow, Petilli, Martinez and Bakelants all crashed on the same spot as De Plus and Bakelants has seven broken ribs and two spinal fractures.
