Not the dampest of squibs, but not the fireworks so many were hoping for.

Nizzolo DNF - presumably due to the stomach bug that hit him and other Trek guys yesterday.

Yeah, I'm sure neither form nor class were an issue.

Isn't one of the unknowns re inrng that no one knows if 'he' is a he or a she?

Good win for LobbyLob - confidence booster? And Stybs looking good for 2nd half of the season.

Nibali wins - and revives Italian cycling? Many people will be hoping so.

He's including himself in the point, as I'm sure you understand.

Should be viddy - it's slated but I guess there's always the chance of geo-restriction.

Well ... you'd think the KISS test needs to kick in sooner or later, no?

One of the problems with KOM is the change in modes of racing GTs down the years.

Fair point. But

Might not that then create the same problem as the sprintermediates?
Commented on Tour Finale and Green Jersey Talking Points on Jul 27 2014, 8:30a
The "consistency" thing is becoming a mantra, just like the "it isn't the sprinter's jersey" thing is already a mantra.

Worth it - if only for the punchline.

Does it matter? (even in a 'just for discussion' sense?) The Top4 are head and shoulders above the rest.

I have a block with Sir Jan - even when I can recognise every other OPQS rider in a race. Which is pretty crap.
