Morkov needs to do roughly 34km in 40mins.
A win would be great if they didn't have any win. When the team already has 3 stage wins (WVA himself 2) a sealed green and pole position for the yellow and 2 important team mates out, risk is not worthy.
That clearly wont happenMorkov needs to do roughly 34km in 40mins.
All that work by BEX and Groenewegen disappears as soon as his leadout drops off
He abandoned Tour of Slovenia with covid. He was super strong last year, in the mountains too, much less so this year but that doesn't mean he's not allowed to respond to questions in interviews.Compared with last year's Tour he's been nowhere. I don't really blame him as a 23 year old who started with only one other rider for help on the flat, but it's still not the best time to be throwing stones.
Mørkøv might just make it.
He should just have quit in the feed zone. I hope ASO send him a bill.
That would be adding insult to injury!
"You fought behind a whole day after having over-heated the other day. Now, pay up!"
Kudos to him for trying, of course, but when you get dropped that early with no help, you're just killing yourself. He'll pay for it tomorrow though, so perhaps it's fair if ASO don't charge him.
I think it's generally fair of ASO to not charge riders who are forced to abandon/ are OTL.
I just don't like people who shows up far too late to parties, ok!
Sometimes the Tour cuts a little slack, the way it did for Paul Sherwen. Maybe they'll do it for Morkov?
