All speculative of course but there's a 'hint' it could be... FDJ!

The circle would be complete. Crazy story of course & probably nothing but as there's no racing to discuss some transfer speculation will have to do.
As long as they're not trying to claim it was FDJ who caused the crash.
Pacher somehow created a shockwave that pushed Roglic - but none of the others - off his bike when he won the bunch sprint for fifth eight seconds later...

I think a bunch of people here are stuck in a groundhog day of sorts (time loop) discussing the same thing over & over again & constantly reliving the moment.

It's like we can't post anything on the Rogla topic without someone posting (screeching?) something about that crash.

The last few dozen pages have been unreadable. So let's hope for some fresh news to break the cycle.

Thats what happens if some posters defend the most outrageous statement of a rider.

It could be some gossip surrounding B&B & their new speculative sponsorship money which has been an ongoing rumor for a couple of months now. Cavendish was linked to them as well.

I think that TJV fan account has merely heard some conversations behind the scenes in the cycling world & taken it a step too far with some "this could happen" Twitter talk.

In the real world, agents/managers talk to teams all the time (especially if their rider really is contemplating a transfer). It doesn't mean any of it is concrete though.
 
Reactions: Sandisfan
Too many walls of text about this we officially need to move on to a fresh subject, like who's the greater rider Vincenzo Nibali or Alejandro Valverde?
Only El Pistolero can answer that question. Unfortunately, he can't be with us.
So, I'll take a shot: Nibali (sick, old and decrepit, he was within a Landa meltdown of a podium spot at the Giro).
Anyway this is the Roglic thread. To sprint or not to sprint: that is the question.
 
Being a shifter doesn't strengthen your argument.

What you are saying is that if you are ahead of a rider on the road you can go anywhere you want no matter what your speed is.

The earth is NOT flat.
No. What i am actually saying is if the rider in front of you is doing something stupid. And you rather than using your head. To save the situation. If you rather just accelerate. To get through regardless of the outcome. That is reckless riding.
 
That’s the thing, Wright and Roglic we’re coexisting just fine alongside the other before Wright started to pass Roglic and Roglic deviated even further to crash into the back of Wright’s elbow.

Wright was in front by the time any collision happened between the two. Wright doesn’t have eyes in the back of his head.
But he for sure has eyes in the front of his head. The crash happened in a meter or two. He had tens of meters to compute what is happening in front of him. That is why people taking one frame out of a lengthy video. They are just taking things out of contest.

Yes and during that time Wright could use his eyes Roglic hadn’t come into his lane, nor did he show he was going to attempt to. Again Roglic and Wright rode alongside each other just find and for a longer distance then a meter. Rolgic never showed he would deviate further and it was safe for Wright to pass Roglic. Roglic is the one who was unsafe, negligent, and reckless.
