I think it was a jab at Jancouver.

I understand why they go there but the production was an embarrassment. And a deterioration from last year.

So why did the organizers give the white jersey to Hodeg yesterday? :confused:

Why is it so hard to have a good broadcast of this race? why?
They have the money, the fans, the riders. I just don't understand why!

I don’t think the broadcaster has the savoir-faire.

I don't want to push this but someone f***ed up at the organizers or EF by not realizing Martinez is under 25 until after stage 1's TTT. Now it's solved, let's move on to the actual racing.

Today's stage 3 looks like a sprint again. Hope Gaviria is not still sick.

Today's circuit is pretty hard. It is a stage of 3800 m, and it is all above 2000 m altitude.
I think that even GC riders will be playing his role at the end.

If nobody take the control properly, one of this guys could win the Tour. So dangerous move. It is EF who must take control to put this one in less than one minute at the end at least.
