Applying a rule 50% of the time is worse than applying it 0% of the time imo.Still their decision wasn't wrong. "Others didn't get relegated in other races", which kind of seems to be their argument, won't help them imo.
Stokbro and Konychev got DQed and they didn't win.Applying a rule 50% of the time is worse than applying it 0% of the time imo.
I'd bet my left kidney he wouldn't have been DQ if he didn't win.
Stokbro was even DQed after he'd already abandoned. Essentially, he that issue (can't remember if it was a crash of mechanic…), tried to get back behind his car, was told to stop, stopped, and realised it was hopeless… So for him it's only a matter of having a DSQ next to his name rather than a DNF.Stokbro and Konychev got DQed and they didn't win.
I don't think he will retire next year, also because his contract is through 2021, where the worlds will be held in Flanders. If he doesn't win that, he might unfortunately retire then.Sagan contemplating retirement after the Giro:
I made a habit of typing like I'd speak, apart from phrases like lol and stuff.Definitely. I have seen the interview now, and it was definitely not serious.
Some journalists are just completely clueless when it comes to irony, apparently.
Edit: Did your a button infect your e button?
Too bad so many riders decide to stop before winning the Tour.Honestly, when I first saw the first post about this (without reading the article) my initial reaction was "Well, did he say anything about how long after?"
Like, Bernal is retiring after winning the Tour de France - obviously, since he's already won it - so "after" in this case could mean one year (hopefully not) or ten years (or twenty years…)
