nah i'll think he will continue until the rest day. Perfect time to go out. Use some mountains as training for MTBI think yesterday was the swan song. Today he will lose the jersey and probably abandon the race after the stage although there is still the possibility the he goes into the second week.
One thing is for sure, this Tour was already a big success for him and he honoured the yellow jersey like few.
They're simply not getting that he's not a full time road rider - and rides other disciplines. It's not as if it was a surprise either - he's been planning to go the Olympics for the last 3-4 years.Good to see him sticking to his plan. Ironically, the folks bagging on him for leaving the tour are probably the same ones (roadies) who bagged on him for racing balls to the wall at TA.
Ewan had also planned to focus on the Tour before he decided to do the Giro, yet that didn't stop people from moaning when he left early. The two cases are fairly equivalent.They're simply not getting that he's not a full time road rider - and rides other disciplines.

I’d like a lot of things too. Reality is that he has been planning and looking forward to the OG for a long time now. With that in mind it’s the only sensible thing for him to do.Let's hope he gets a chance to beat Pidcock after the last MTB demonstration, the brit is a beast. The green jersey was really an option for MVDP, the risk is to lose everything, but that's part of the sport! Would also have liked to see him taking part to some sprints now that Merlier left the team.
I definitely wasn’t one of those moaners cause I think they should make that decision for themselves. However, in Mathieu’s case the OG only come a around once every 4 years. GT’s are every year.Ewan had also planned to focus on the Tour before he decided to do the Giro, yet that didn't stop people from moaning when he left early. The two cases are fairly equivalent.
Which is what I like about him. He won’t lose any sleep over the moaners. By this time next year nobody will even remember what they were making such a big fuss about now.Not that VDP cares at all that people cry about it. He doesn't seem to be impressed with any outside influences regardless
Only if you believe that those labels are solely based in reference to comments made on the CN forum. Take a look at comments made outside of CN, on other (social-media) platforms. Moaners and whiners galore.Gotta love how we're back at the point where anyone disagreeing is whining, moaning or crying.
