Im going by memory, around 49-50 minutes.

First of all, the runner is a real jerk ... and so is the guy who tripped him.

Second of all, Tejay Van Garderen's knees seem to be pointed inwards quite markedly at the top of the stroke*.

* although not at the bottom

No surprises given Cunego has slowed dramatically (or at least so it appears) in recent years relative to his previous performances. Interesting his team support him, rather than temporarily suspend so maybe it is a complicated one???


subject person metnioned by secret pro :noidea:


No, Secret Pro mentioned bio passport charges. Mantova is an investigation that started with police surveillance of a dodgy pharmacist.

Cunego's name was mentioned in the Mantova investigation a long time ago.

Ten Dam's average H/R was 151 bpm (source: strava) during his 30km 'trip' on the Saxo train. (It was even lofre beforehand) It's not that hard to sit on the wheels, if you can position yourself well enough.

Ed: Of course every credit for being able to position himself well enough.

letting the tit run along side, or tripping him into TJ, and knocking him off?

Who'd look the tw*t then?

He was far enough behind Tejay that he would not have tripped the rider up.

I'm not a fan of vigilante justice, but maybe a few examples like this will help people think twice before getting too close to the riders.

I thought that time Contador punched that guy in the mouth would make ppl think twice; however, it didn't make a dent.

I wonder if next year some of the losing teams will look at applying a little more science to their efforts.

The gap in professionalism between the teams seems remarkable when compared to other sports like football.

Froome clearly has a custom made SRM spider, although to be honest why go to all that trouble... same crank arms on the 7800 - 7900 and the 9000.
