Martin was 2 places behind Froome in the Stage 2 sprint finish.Cimber said:He was "cheated" in the sense that the rules are made in a way that its not always the guy who used less time you is actually in the yellow jersey. In theory we could have a Tour winner who did the Tour a little slower than no.1 (disregarding time bonusses).wwabbit said:So how was he "cheated" ?Cimber said:Yep rules are rules, but if you actually clock the correct time (with miliseconds) it seems as if Martin would have gotten yellow by 0,06 secs.wwabbit said:Did you read the article you just quoted? It says 0.93 seconds, which by the rules for many years have meant that it counts as same time.Cimber said:Seems Martin might actually have been cheated and should have gotten yellow since Froome was actually 1 sec behind Jrod (but got same time) and according to miliseconds after the TT on stage one Martin shoudl have gotten the jersey if Froome had been clocked correctly 1 sec behind JRod
So while Froome is "legally" in yellow, Martin is morally in a way
Anyways, we are in 2015 now, maybe its time they reviewed these rules in the future, since measuring actual time in 0,0 and 0,00 seconds is not really a big deal these days.
Are you so sure that gap was less than 0.07 seconds?
In any case, we don't know what Froome's actual official lead over Martin is, it could be anything between 0.50s to 1.50s
