Not necessarily related to this stage, but yesterday watching the TTT and on other times I've watched this and other races lately, I have noticed some weird short bar or object sticking out from underneath the saddle of some riders' bikes. It looks to be maybe 4-5 inches long and sticks out backward from underneath the saddle. Does anyone know what those are?
You mean these? If so, they're for protection against rain.
The run in for todays stage was great had real classics feel about it, just enough done for bouhanni to win it but it never looked certain till end, could knocked 20km off the start however, only two brave enough to go in break, a break of 4or5 might well have won the day
