Yup. But same thing happened with Brad at the 2011 Tour, he looked great & he had a dumbass crash too.Geoghegan Hart looked like maybe the strongest rider in the race, even with Evenepoel still there. Really unfortunate. Never seen him this good, even in the Giro he won.
NahI actually had picked Tao to get another Savoldelli style Giro win.
Better yet, let them have blades sticking out of the wheel like in chariot races and move the finishline to the Circus Maximus! What are the organizers waiting for?To honor the theme of this years Giro the last stage should be turned into a track-style elimination race.
100% had the same impression!The crash looked kindof weird. Like Covi goes down first and G crashes clearly cause of beeing in his wheel, but all if not some of the others seemed to be crashing independant of that (or atleast crashed too early for it beeing cause of that). Idk maybe something slippy on the surface?
TGH dropped out of the race due to poor bike handling skills. Which is an important part of cycling. Just because someone falls a few metres in front of you doesn't automatically mean you have to fall too. Better that robots don't always win...What a sh*tshow this Giro has been so far. Hardly any exciting racing, 11 stages in, and GC contenders (and others) taken out left, right and center by covid and crashes. With the weather likely continuing to be wet, this destruction derby is not set to stop any time soon.
It's because, out of habit, riders in the heat of the moment brake as hard as they would have with rim brakes then? Which is too hard braking with disc's.Because of the braking power its very easy to lock the wheel, wich on wet roads will cause you to slide out.
