Dumoulin out of the Dauphiné. Still has knee problems from his crash in the Giro.

Wonder if he will still ride the Tour..

Yes looks like he broke a cervical vertebra but no nerves are touched, it will be treated conservatively.

The more I read about this crash the scarier it gets... Dan Martin also quoted to be traumatised by it as a witness.

He might get back physically but would be the mental side that would be hard to be back to tdf winning mode.

going back to stage 2 , where Remco won..... did anyone see him blowing the doors off campernaets. Dang. Towed victor for legit 5 kms then victor was very in the red and crashes out of a 2 man break. Looked like VC didn't take a single pull

That Cube is almost 1:1 their TT bike indeed, which actually is a nice one, and rides very well, but not sure if it is the right approach for a racing aero bike :D

Yesterday at Dauphine, when Alaphilippe won.

Eventually, think they have 6 months or something.

I think I remember it being within 9 months, however in practice I really think this is one of those rules that is pretty easy to “get around”. Look at Specialized with the rim brake bikes they did for Boonen etc. They had no incentive or desire to promote rim brake bikes to the public, so while maybe you technically could have gotten one (I’m not aware of anyone who did) I think they were pretty hidden from the public at large. Being “available” and being visibly promoted or even produced in more than a handful quantity are quite different things.
