Yeah. I don't know what the moto driver was thinking there. He fell asleep and was going backwards. A couple of seconds gained for Roglic there, that's for sure. Still I don't think it'll matter in the end. I expect Roglic to be better than Kwiatkowski on Malhao, although the Pole seems to be in good shape so you never know.Zinoviev Letter said:I would prefer Roglic to win GC and obviously he didn't make the moto drive like that, but Kwiatkowski has every right to be very annoyed. A five, ten, fifteen second gap could in theory be overcome by a good Ardennes rider on the steep hill finish. 20 seconds plus, almost certainly not. Roglic would still be favourite, but being given a leg up from favourite to near certain winner is no small thing.Orbit501 said:I wonder how long that police moto man had switched off for? Roglic already being paced by him when we saw it.del1962 said:
Having said that, not Roglic's fault and he was always likely to put in a top 3 ride on this stage anyway to be fair. I think Castroveijo would rightly have cause for complaint though if Roglic had won the stage.
He has been a bit of a lucky boy with the motos. When he attacked Martin yesterday, he also got a very helpful slipstream, leading to Dan gesticulating at the motorbike to get lost. He'd still be in the lead now anyway, of course.
