I guess it's just a question of viewers. Presumably even the final of the women's race will attract fewer viewers than the start of the men's race.On Danish TV they're talking about how the men and women have to share the coverage; with the women starting crazy early, so they can be done before the men start, because they're showing full-coverage of the men's race.
However, is that necessary? Surely they can show the finale - and preferably a bit more than just 30 Ks - of the women's race, while the men are in the early phases of their race. Of course if there's a route-issue then it's a different talk.
There's a fine line between sliver and silver.Great race, but Grace, you broke me by giving me hope. If I'd just known Deignan was going to win comfortably I might have reconciled to it better, but as that gap kept coming down I just had that sliver of hope we might get a better result.
No, I'm in England having to watch on a potato streami take it this is live on Eurosport today?
FFS why isn't there someone to warn the riders.Ouch. Road furniture crash, McCarthy and GVA down hard. No warning, no flag etc, just a low road sign in the middle of the road.
one of the most obviously dangerous types of road obstacles, low and in the middle of the road, completely invisible to anyone riding in a close peloton. Inexcusable that it wasn’t guarded by someone with a big flagFFS why isn't there someone to warn the riders.
Damn it. I hope his season isn't over. Expected him to do good today and the coming weeks.
