Exactly. What does Roglič crashing a lot have to do with anything? Case-by-case…
Correct. Roglic had just as much right to go for the win on stage 7 of the 2021 Paris-Nice, as Wright had to go for the win on stage 16 of the 2022 Vuelta a Espana. No "ancient rules" applied in either case.
If we're going to use the comparison between Tuesday's Vuelta stage & the Gino incident in Paris-Nice 2021, then Roglič was actually in the same role in both races: fighting for the overall GC victory. In Paris-Nice his actions were completely justified in order to grab the bonus seconds & extend his lead. In the Vuelta, he needed to create a gap to the bunch & possibly sprint for some bonuses on the line.
Being a fan of someone often becomes irrational when they say things offensive to human intelligence.But the problem here is, that a lot of people don't think that Wright had nowhere to go but into Roglič. Yes, it's true that Roglič doesn't have eyes at the back of his head, but that doesn't exempt him from using the ones he has at the front of it, which it seems he could have done a better job of this time around.
Also you can easily be a fan of riders without having to agree with everything they do or say. I was and still am a big fan of Samuel Sánchez, but his defense of Lance Armstrong during a 2012 Tour of Beijing interview is one of the most stupid things I've ever read.
doubt it will unleash so much threats and havoc on Primoz's social media as TJV/Priomz statement/accusations though... this stuff can be really harmful to young people's psychological well being - we've seen it many times in the past years. so yeah, i do think TJV statement and false accusations have much more damage potential than Mohoric's piss.Is it?
It's just a piss take cause you know you have the upper hand in public opinion.
2 wrongs don't make a right.
Lol, i love this. World is on fire because of his comments and he's having a time of his life on the sun. This is pure evil.
The Vuelta was ruined because Roglic rode into a rider that passed him without touching Roglic.but the truth is the Vuelta was ruined from an entertainment perspective on Tuesday because Fred Wright sprinted hard for 4th, going through the rider sitting 2nd in GC.
That’s just a shorter and more zoomed in clip that someone already posted of Roglic leaving his side/lane and Wright not riding through him.
