It was still red, but because I accidentally paused it, I obviously missed a few seconds.
I've had to do that before; refresh because even though it seemingly was up-to-speed, I was pretty sure it wasn't, and once I'd gone through that silly step of pointing out that, yes; I obviously want to watch live, it turned out that... it really wasn't quite up-to-speed.
In that case you can hold the little circle indicating the time and just move it to the right. Gives you a couple of seconds usually.
 
Yes indeed. It's so obvious Roglic simply can't do any better, he arrives at the finish line white as a sheet. He tried, but he just can't do it at the moment. That's unfortunate, but somehow all the frustration of a lot of guys on this forum is reserved for him and Jumbo. They can't work wonders. Yes, they maybe could have increased the gap on Thomas by 4 seconds more. Well, whoopty doo.
4 seconds would have been good, and a stage win always helps morale. But yes, he is trying, they all are. It's just really close and that's part exciting and part boring. Similar to last year, until that last mountain stage... So tomorrow it is. G in poll position to take the giro.
 
Did any of those GC riders aside from Thomas strike you as having the legs to simply try harder? I don't think anyone on this forum actually watches what's going on. Just play pro cycling manager instead of constantly doing the "I would simply attack" thing.
There were like 194 guys in that group with 1.5 km to go, of course they could have tried harder. And of course they're going to be knackered at the finish line anyway because they sprinted there instead of upping the pace from afar, but it's still not the same kind of effort.

Being delayed by maybe 1 second means that you must refresh the page?!
 
Thomas is the legitimate winner of this Giro d'Italia.

Almeida isn't even 2nd fiddle at UAE

Roglic & Jumbo are outright pathetic this Giro d'Italia.
Indeed, Thomas is the winner we all deserve.

All the Roglic-hype and no risk no glory bs makes me vomit. He has always been like this, a conservative flame rouge type of rider.
 
Thomas deserves this giro. I still have a fair bit of Sky PTSD but *** me, no one has even tried.
Let's see about trying: most of the stages conducted in rain and threat of Covid along with some hail today and huge climbs. Nope, I guess no one even tried. Stated like a hardened Belgian pro analyzing club racers. Sorry.
