What was up with van Vleuten’s front wheel? That was one of the weirdest crashes I’ve ever seen. Tubeless spooge all over the place.

Premature ejection for the rider for sure…

Musing about the DP win for Matagi, I noticed that the Corgis have gone to the sweating son. Appropriate really, since he’s clearly the best groomer….

Is it normal for a pro like Simon Clarke to do a ride like this a few days (Wednesday) before a huge race?

Yes, at least years ago. I can remember Hinault, LeMond and Argentin doing similar. Ullrich another before the Sydney Olympics.

I saw on FB Davo had been training them behind the moto in Canberra last weekend.

What do we think of the 4 of 5 knuckleheads behind Evenepoel in the last couple of kms? Fmd!
Did they care so much about not gifting a place to the others by leading out that they wouldn't have a serious crack at it? Isn't the number one rule of a successful breakaway to NOT fark around so much near the end that the chasing bunch catches ya? Crikey!
