Stage 19 was a good day for the Americans - Craddock and Simmons.

Yes Lopez was told not to chase and quit out of anger. See post in the Movistar thread. But so what if he had brought back...

I'm not going to start a separate thread, but is anyone also keeping an eye on the Benelux tour? Lots of talent there, and some drama too.

Is Evenpoel just having a bad year or should we...

Yeah, Jay Vine wowed everybody. His crash against his team director's car was kind of a rookie self-own, but after cutting himself up he made his way back to the action - that took strength and guts....

well, remember that Merlier left the tour after stage 9 from physical exhaustion. He left the Giro mid-way through for the same reason. You can't blame Alpecin Fenix for not betting on him as their...

I rather liked what Alpecin-Fenix was doing early in the TdF, where Philipsen and Merlier were clearly trying to share the glory. Merlier won that sprint stage on Philipsen's lead out, even though...

Also, we've all had tons of sympathy for Jakobsen, coming back from his crash in Poland. But he burnt up some good will in that moment after the race.

OK. mea culpa. You got it right and I got it wrong.

I'm not sure why you are offended. Your question had two parts, really - is he a fan (no) and the origin of the phrase, which as ooga booga indicated, comes from jazz, or more specifically from the...

Bottom line - I/we don't know if he had a mechanical. If he did, the speed had nothing to do with him being out of contention. If he didn't, then maybe he's making excuses for not being able to close...

No, They did not "lose him at high pace". They lost him because he sat up.

I don't think the team planned to lose Jakobsen to a mechanical at 1.5 km. Nor do I think that they had much chance to...

Not really. If he had a mechanical at 1.5 km out, then their high pace had nothing to do with him being out of contention.

I agree that the ground rules here are spoilers are OK inside threads, but not in thread titles. If you don't want to know what happened in today's race, don't open this kind of thread.

Horner is not for everybody. For one thing, he has no video rights, so all the illustrations are still photographs (screen caps). Also, he has a very characteristic style that could either charm...

So tomorrow the smart money is on Roglic. My guess is that he takes it, but that Bernal marks him and doesn't give away too much time. The Bernal/Ineos plan has got to be to gain a bunch of time...

Has Ineos clarified that Bernal will be first among their GC contenders? I sure hope so. Should Bernal stumble, they have some exquisite plan B candidates. But they're nuts if their plan A isn't...
