Question Faul play



Katusha rider feels he distanced Anton in finale

Joaquin Rodriguez (Katusha) has voiced his dismay at missing out on taking the red jersey at the Vuelta a España yesterday. The Spanish rider thought he had done enough to claim the overall lead, first by taking a time bonus at the first intermediate sprint and then by appearing to open a gap over Igor Anton (Euskaltel-Euskadi) in the closing metres of the stage.
Instead, the results of the opening intermediate sprint were nullified due to a large crash in the peloton which took place just before and then, after lengthy deliberation, the commissaires opted to award Anton the same time as Rodriguez for the stage, meaning that the Euskaltel-Euskadi man took the overall lead.
“I don’t know why I’m not the leader,” Rodriguez told AS after the stage finish at Xorret de Catì. “The team should lodge an appeal because on crossing the line I saw a big gap back to Anton but they gave us the same time.”
Rodriguez was also upset that the time bonus he thought he had gained 17km into the stage had been wiped out. “They also cancelled the sprint with the time bonus,” he said. “Look what happens when the judges aren’t meticulous. What they did was ugly but I just have to resign myself to it now.”

I thought Rodriguez had the gap but it is not a bad thing for him or the team to not have the red jersey atm.

The gap is debatable because Nibali was in there too. What I find odd is the bonus sprint being annulled.

Seeing how much he wanted the red jersey, its possible he feels he is coming to the end of his form, which started at the tour, so wants a leaders jersey in week 2 instead. Kind of like Vino said before the giro he was aiming for a few days in pink, nothing more.

You mean early on in the stage? That was because of the crashes. Otherwise the remnants of the breakaway had already finished. For mine there is a clear gap over Nibali by only a second though.

Was the bunch waiting for those who had crashed, making it a Cancellara sprint? If so, I suppose it makes sense.

Why is he called Purito - because he is small and clean, or?
