map links still broken

To whoever decided to number the rest day stages as if they were stages, instead of calling them something like rest-1 and rest-2, thus throwing off the naming of the rest of the pages by 1 (after the first rest day) and 2 (after the second rest day), I shake my head in disbelief. What were you thinking???

Not only is it confusing to the users, but it's confused you guys so much that here we are at the end of the Tour and the map links are still broken!

For example, let's look at Stage 19. Of course, first add 2 (since stage 19 is after Rest day #2) to produce stage-21: :rolleyes:

www.cyclingnews.com/races/96th-tour-de-france-gt/stages/stage-21

Now, scroll down to look at the profile. Too small? No problem, click on it to see the bigger version. Oops. It takes you the stage-19 map, which of course is the Stage 17 map:

www.cyclingnews.com/races/96th-tour-de-france-gt/stages/stage-19/map

No problem, just edit the url in your browser, changing the 19 to a 21 and hit Enter. Everyone should know to do that. :rolleyes:

...which is why there were 'See full-size map and profile.' links added as a temporary work around to the affected pages last Wednesday in the original thread opened on this topic.
