I think having a beard was a good idea.
 
This run in was so dangerous....more so than others if that's possible? The constant road expansion from 1 lane to 2 lanes then opening to 4+ lanes contributed to some seriously stupid pack movement. GC riders were forced to work back up and fortunately Kuss came through relatively unscathed. They could easily have controlled the wider areas to 2 lanes to maintain a higher, consistent tempo and saved a few bodies.

In his interview Groves said the course wasn't bad, the riders were. Said it happens when everyone wants to win.
