This is my conclusion now. So if a rider is going to end up in a crash, it would be better he stay nearby the preferred yellow jersey holder so he won't lose any time. Guaranteed.

He was annoyed because he didn't believe that the commissaires would have stepped in and annulled his loss if he had been the only one involved in a crash with a spectator or race vehicle. And was almost certainly correct about that.
But what if the MJ runs away?????? :D :lol:

Tom Dumoulin should be expelled. Earlier in the tour, he got into a camper for an "emergency ", except of course if he was still on his bike in the camper. :p

In all honesty, Mollema shouldn't have carried on when Froome and Porte went down with the motorbike, and that's where the problem lies. If he had stopped, the peloton would have stopped too, and we wouldn't need the commissaires to get involved at all. Instead Mollema tried to take advantage of the situation
Yup. He should've stopped, tossed his bike to the side and ran side by side with Froome. You are kidding aren't you?

The gentlemanly thing to do would have been to have offered his bike. But then again some people ride off while others are drinking water.

Lol, this is the best comment so far.
Mollema to offer his bike to Dawg, Dawg to TLMRTP (a bit of hesitating, but a bike is not a wheel) and Richie back to Bauke. All awarded 2 mins and losing 2 more minutes exchaging the bikes.
I would pay to see that.
