To sprint like that after pretty much a 80km TT over a Cat 2 and Cat 1 yesterday at the end of a GT is something else.....

And again NBC skips 90% of the awards and cuts to nascar. No team, polka dot, young rider or stage winner presentation.

There was no crash.
There was a crash inside 3 km, but it was not on screen. Caused splits. Took out Lotto-Jumbo
Very hard to say who was affected and who wasn't..

Good to see lantern rouge Sam Bennett with a top 10 finish after what must have been a pretty torrid three weeks after his early prang
 
There was a crash just visible on screen, but that was when front of race was at about 3.2km, so place of crash a bit more away.

But commissaires decided this wasn't really part of the race, even decided that there was less than a second in front of the Sky formation dancing squad.
 
I like Purito and he deserves the 7th place after he showed some balls yesterday, but this is a *** decision. The crash with the Lotto Jumbo guy (Roosen?) was at 3.2km, so not inside the 3km. You can't just change the rules everyday. Why not give Porte his 2 minutes back if you're giving everyone time bonuses?

Anyway, glad that Greipel took the win, his GT streak still stands.
