Basically a salary cap like US football. Levels the playing field. Its not about how good the top rider is. Its about being able to afford a full lineup of top talent.

I don't mind TTT's in smaller stage races, just adds a bit of character and uniqueness in events that don't matter so much. TTT's in Grand Tours I am not as keen on ...

How can a WT race be this poorly produced? Just heli-shots, and they have already mistaken a Wanty rider for Kiserlovski.

It is a good idea. I like American model of doing sport business so much. But it can be done only in countries where it can be controllable. We have discussed this problem several times.
I can imagine only a few European countries where it can be done. How on earth can you control the salary cup in countries like Russia or even Italy. Only a dream.

I take it you are unfamiliar with the normal tv coverage of Catalunya. Frankly we are fortunate to have any pictures at all.

Nacer?
Alberto Contador=Legend!

Nibali becomes only the 6th winner of all 3 GTS (2014)!
Nibali joins Gimondi, Merckx and Hinault as only the 4th man to win all 3 GTS and 2 different Monuments (2018). A throwback rider in this age of specialization. Bravo!
