Remarkable statistic:

Yellow jersey - Bernal: no stage win, not even top 3 in a stage win (besides the TTT)
White jersey - Bernal: see yellow
He finished a stage first and recorded the shortest time on that stage: rather graceless of ASO not to record it as a stage win.
It wasn't a stage. It was 70% of a stage.

Baloney! Everyone else would have ridden very differently had they known that was the stage finish. No stage rankings was the proper decision for a neutralized stage.

But it wasn't a neutralised stage: it was the one that decided the race.

Not according to ASO and their opinion trumps yours, it's their race.

Yes it Awarded a winner and we'll Never Known if he'd have won on the road, because he didn't have to.
