Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!
From the last section regarding the time limit in the rules and regulations posted yesterday (I missed it at first too):Anyone remember what the typical points penalty is for missing the time cut in a large group...
I was going to say that to your comment about it. Watch him go back to 0 and win still. Was it just since the race was so hard? I didn’t expect it to be a concern with the downhills.Matthews only has 113 points, so I guess Cavendish could still take green even if he loses all his points today (or tomorrow).
EDIT: The grupetto made the time limit today.
The danger is that the grupetto is OOT, but reinstated, and that he loses all his points. In that case, it's likely both Matthews and Colbrelli would be in a group inside the time limit.He wasn't near the first in trouble yesterday, which is the main way to finish OOT.
Also clever to help other sprinters, so they help catch breakaways and lead out Cav
I think the break will take two of those.With this number of flat stages remaining and a sprint field that at this point would be considered poor at the Vuelta a Burgos, Cav is going to wrap up the stage record before they even get to Paris. He’s going to win six stages.
Who just lost two riders of their train, so will need more of the rest to be fresh for the finale, and they got what they came for.
He was like 1:30 inside the time cut today. That is quite a struggle. Maybe if there was another hard mountain stage tomorrow it would be over.It's just insane that in the year of 2021 I feel like there is a decent chance that Mark f*cking Cavendish will have the most successful Tour of his career. I really thought he would massively struggle to get over the Alps.
