And that, Enric, is why we ride tubulars...

S.K.Andersen was made leave the race and sent to his team headquarters after the Paris-Nice TT, when he had a disagreement with DSM about his team trial position.
he wants to leave at the end of the season (he has a contract with DSM for 2022 too)
Hindley alredy said he´ll leave, his contract ends this year

Turkey sprint for 2nd place is the same like women's Brabantse Pijl. From the side it seemed clear that cav was 2nd, but no, he is 3rd.
Anybody saw the official photofinish pic somwhere on the net?

Couldn't understand why he didn't change his bike, the team car was right there. Perhaps they told him to ride on with the flat as they thought it'd be quicker than changing, if so that was a bit of a misjudgement.

Perhaps they didn't give a tought to the fact it was a clincher. On a tubular it would surely be faster to ride on, even with a front flat.

But at the same time, if you're not going to go after EVERY technology advantage in a time trial, you're not going to win anyway.

At DSM, they don't have Directeurs Sportifs, they have Dictateurs Sportifs. People must be very desperate to sign there by this point, nobody ever wants to even complete their contracts and it's been like that for years.

Roche seems fine there. but between male and female riders, personnel and staff, so many left earlier

Great finish in the women's race. What was ELB thinking attacking Niewiadoma on the false flat and then refusing to work afterward. She would have easily outsprinted her.

You can have a puncture with a tubular, or with clinchers, like him.

Looked like Pidcock rode on Lightweights. In the aero era of cycling I'm still surprised how often Ineos use them.
