slartiblartfast said:Completely different situation. When Evans had his puncture in the Vuelta he was with the lead group of GC contenders who then collectively went on the attack. On Saturday he was one of the ones having to do the chasing to get back to the lead group. Are you suggesting he was supposed to wait for Nibali and Basso and pace them back to Vino's group?
Not really no. Cuddles claims he was attacked by Piti when he had his mechanical and threw his toys out of the pram.
Cuddles after he made it back to the Vino/Garzelli group could have sat up with Vino and waited/eased off the pace. Instead he went for it. He could have used his clout at WC to bring the Milram riders into line, but he didn't.
Cuddles is a hypocrite, ethics only apply when nasty things are being done to him, not when he is doing nasty things to others.
Lets hope for Cuddles sake that he doesn't have anymore falls or mechanicals, and that no one dares to accelarate. I am sure that if he does we will hear all about it from him and his fanboys about how unfair it all is and victimised he is.
