He disgraced himself publicly. I cannot imagine what his sponsors think and I hardly imagine a reasonable Diretor hiring him and paying for his real value.I don't like sitting on my sofa watching these guys on TV & then lecturing or moralizing them when they have a meltdown or whatnot.
It's not like he punched anyone or disgraced himself publicly. This is between him & his team & we have no idea what the dynamic is there between them (nor can we speculate about potential repercussions until they actually happen).
Checking if his Uber was still coming to take him to the nearest tavern maybe.I also thought the brief image of him on the phone before climbing into the car was weird. I mean, I know phone use is so ubiquitous now that folks get on their phone in every moment. But it gave the appearance of being nonchalant as he withdrew from the race. And what would he being saying at that point? "Hi hon, decided to leave work early today so expect me home for dinner"?
If this is true, DSs need to be fired for incompetence.According to new information Movistar forbid Lopez to close the gap (probably when Mas and others got away). Of course it's part of tactics to do the 1-2 attacks and let others chase, they probably didn't count on him and others losing so many minutes. Sucks for him as he definitely had the legs to finish on the podium. He must've felt like they abandoned him, but then again so did Ineos with Bernal. Crap luck, still abandoning is a bit of an overreaction. finishing top 10 is still a good result to have.
True, although I guess at the time they thought the attack it will make Bernal and others chase and for Lopez to stay on the wheels and not follow Mas. For Lopez it was a clear sign they preferred Mas on the podium and protected, being a Spanish team and all.If this is true, DSs need to be fired for incompetence.
Also if this is true, I'll lobby for complaining about Movistar tactics memes to be a bannable offence.
That's not the point.True, although I guess at the time they thought the attack it will make Bernal and others chase and for Lopez to stay on the wheels and not follow Mas. For Lopez it was a clear sign they preferred Mas on the podium and protected, being a Spanish team and all.
Yeah, if someone in the teamcar really made that call hes beyond saving...That's not the point.
It's not between Mas and Lopez.
I'ts between Lopez on the podium or off the podium. Mas didn't benefit at all today. He gained * all, tried all, and won ** all.
