Okay, possibly, I have never noticed it before.

Well I’ve just learnt something new, cheers!You don't have to when you're not the right owner. So 2nd in that you can chose to refuse the white jersey.
...if you have a national or continental champion's jersey. Just to make that clear. Others don't have that choice
Pink and ginger don't match. There's a reason selling or wearing pink clothes is prohibited by law in Ireland.Leknesund so cute in pink! Color explosion with that super light red hair and the bright pink
Maybe they could just use northern France or Belgium for the first weekechelon stage, stage with cobbles
I’m pretty sure that if you are second in a secondary classification you can refuse to carry the white if you have WC jersey (or NC jersey).He wont be riding in the rainbow jersey tomorrow, he’s second in the young rider comp so he’ll be wearing white.
He's the ultra light ginger where it looks good! (On Pog and Remco though I/I'd suffer )Pink and ginger don't match. There's a reason selling or wearing pink clothes is prohibited by law in Ireland.
Motard/motarde is the rider/driver. Moto is motorcycle. So when we say “ why are there so many dam motos” I think that is the better usage. Unless you’re referring to a specific driver—like the guy who pulled off on the wrong side of the road in De Ronde and Alaphilippe crashed into.It's the French word for motorcyclist that has also been adopted in the Dutch-speaking cycling world.
I would think soI should hope that the world champion's jersey also counts...

Still even just thinking of that crash I hear Ala screaming in my head. It was the first one day race I ever watched apart from worlds. But that scream still linger.Motard/motarde is the rider/driver. Moto is motorcycle. So when we say “ why are there so many dam motos” I think that is the better usage.

This. So much!Yeah, Almeida's been refusing it, and I would say he has every reason to want to get rid of that horrible NC jersey he's wearing.
I don't think I've ever seen a sprint where it was more obvious who would win with 300m to go.
There's somme cobbles in rome 😀Maybe they could just use northern France or Belgium for the first week
Landa versus Tejay was a classic sprint.............Mustn't have sen much of Landa in a two/three up
I'll eat my shoe if 2 stages finish in exactly 6h this Giro.I thought, cool, Laceno on Tuesday will certainly deliver - early first MTF…
Then I took the time to watch the finale, and it sadly didn’t deliver at all. No race action besides APP vs Leknessund.
Remco‘s GC opponents today forgot that it is them who have to gain time on Remco, bc Remco is in front of them. But if they don‘t attack on the MTFs, where else?
Everyone now talking about the brutal final week. After today, I could imagine that in the final week, we‘ll daily see such a result:
1. Remco 6:00:00hrs
2. Rog, TGH, Almeida, all GC guys +1s
Sad, but that‘s new reality, obviously…
Please don't confuse the Passo San Bernardino (not in this Giro) with the Colle del Gran San Bernardo (this year's planned Cima Coppi). The feelings of great Alpine mountain passes are easily hurt.This is going to happen on San Bernardino already
This is going to happen on San Bernardino already with either Pinot and/or Buitrago or at least Fortunato being able to go into the breakaway. Then, Ineos, Jumbo & Co will gamble and do no work at all. So Remco is isolated towards Crans Montana so they can attack him and the break succeeds bringing one additional contender back into contention and into the mountains jersey.
From then on, they are going to attack Remco left and right everywhere. At least on Giau. He can't mark Tao and Roglic and either Pinot/Buitrago. One attack sticks eventually and then everything can happen or nothing like with Savoldelli 2005. While Almeida just cautiously follows wheels onto the podium or more.
But you need to create the situation first. By letting a dangerous contender come back into striking distance. It's a gamble. The thing is if Quick Step keeps being that bad the gamble is going to pay off for one.
Of course if, theoretically Buitrago walks away with the Giro d'Italia victory Rujano was denied in 2005, it's a major face-palm for Ineos & Jumbo. But what else can they do than to take that gamble and hope they gonna be the profiteurs if Remco blows up because of it!?
The question is. Who gaps Remco on the Giau pass and who's in front as a Relais-station? If it's Tao and he's got Arensman + either De Plus or Sivakov in front. Done deal as Roglic won't work with Remco. If it's Roglic with Oomen and Kuss or at least Bouwman. Looks fine too. If it's Buitrago with only Sütterlin & Zamabanini in front I'm not convinced with Lussari the next day. But Haig could be out by that time and told to sit up towards Zoldo Alto.
IMHO it's nearly impossible this doesn't play out. We've seen too many Giro d'Italia editions just like that.
Remco still can defend and win of course. But there certainly was racing and he certainly deserves his overall win by taking the responsibility of a big champion!
Thanks for correction. I already did that twice. Gonna correct it.Please don't confuse the Passo San Bernardino (not in this Giro) with the Colle del Gran San Bernardo (this year's planned Cima Coppi). The feelings of great Alpine mountain passes are easily hurt.
