Still, no need for that. They've been guiding riders like that at the end of stages forever.
...um. i wasn't defending the brush off.

i was just saying we shouldn't read "injury" from that action.

to me, he went very, very deep and he was still trying to recover. and he was not in the mood to be ushered/walked away yet.

the "angry" brush-off is regrettable, for sure.

He's a twitchy little ***, that's for sure. Makes me laugh. He's always so composed for the media, but on the bike, he gets pretty exercised. I don't doubt he'll grow up a bit, but probably will also always be a bit of a hothead. Not unusual for a champion to have some attitude.

Soccer attitude.
Which reminds me the European diving championships start tomorrow. Keep an eye on England’s Grealish and Portugal’s Fernandes
