Apparently Chaves was having issues with pollen allergie today. Meanwhile Froome was caught just using his asthma puffer completely shameless live on TV. He should **** himself and dissappear!


So he' still using? Addiction is a disease in itself.

Did you just make this completely up or did it actually happen?

Very happy to see Mohoric win! :) What a great rider he's become. But I also feel sorry for Denz. :(

Will have to watch the highlights later


Chaves distanced early, lost over 25 minutes.
Rest of the favourites finished together.


And Dumoulin had a small crash on the last descend but could return easily.


I chose only to include the things that had a direct influence on the result today.
Aka The Ginger One.

They were a little bit unlucky, Frapporti was taken with 400m from the KOM and he's a good descender. For the rest they don't have someone who could match Mohoric. Maybe they should have put someone with Denz.

It’s perfectly within the rules to use it with proper dosage?

Which is why I referred to it as "shameless" as it literally screams: "I'm allowed, I'm allowed!"

But let's not spread this discussion here. Should've repressed myself criticizing it here. Sorry!

(Feel free to delete mods, I was a little too late.)

Yes just like any other asthmatic rider.

It's not heroin. How many other riders are doing the same ?

It wasn't a small crash according to Dumoulin. He went down pretty hard.

There was a slow motion with him taking a puff wasn't it? They even curled it and Leclercq was mute for a few seconds. Or was that only a power bar? But why would they put a curl around the bar and show a slow-motion of Froome eating it?

Yes I'm seeing that now, that's just what Sunweb reported at that time. Hope we're not having Dumoulin going down the same road as Froome.

If so, I honestly apologize for my misinterpretation! But why would they draw a curl around his microphone? Or was that a hallucination?

I think you're being too harsh on Bora. This was a leg breaking stage and nobody had much left in the tank. The final was lumpy too. Impossible to control unless you have a team full of big engines (which Bora clearly is not).

Now we see the motivation behind your ridiculous posts. Yates made the decision on his own and IMO it was the correct one.

All the ridiculous posts started with this one.
Then it went downhill from there.
