Yes, yes, yes, 80 km solo and winning by 3 minutes is easy enough to do that it isn't surprising anymore.

Genius plan: drop everyone, go solo and put 3-9 minutes on all your rivals. Generals like Friedrich the Great, Napoleon, Alexander the Great, Von Hötzendorf and Cadorna might have been able to come up with something similar.

Such bullsh1t. He was riding solo so the car could come up to him any time they wanted. The chasing group was very small also so they could also feed from the cars.

I remember P&P raving about how Landis was pouring bottles after bottles on his head to keep himself cool. But, I guess it's all about marginal gains to spread people through the stage.

So apparently the team spent all day yesterday talking about it, planning today, planning everything. How were they doing that when there was a race on?

Brailsford is so full of it

Another Landis.

I'll continue to watch the Spring Classics & Strade Bianchi.

The sport is dead.

I am mourning the death of the Grand Tours?

Doping is the sport but fans put up with it to the point of plausible deniability. The line was crossed today

Agreed. When you put in a performance like say Yates earlier there were plausible reasons for it. Today there is no plausible reason other than doping.

Clarification: "The traditional rest day blood transfusion."

i.e. all the top competitors

He didn't do anything alien uphill and group Dumoulin went slow af in the two descents.

Brailsfraud is the biggest clown in cycling. Dislike him even more than Froome.
