Doesn't make any sense. It was a downhill crash, last spot you'd be using mechanical assistance. But yeah, anything that spins is suspect, LOL.

Is that the secret to Nibali's incredible downhill speed?

That's what I needed when I raced. I, to misquote Mohammad Ali, could "sting (climb) like a bee but (descended) like a butterfly".

looking forward to the vuelta - these tdf's where everyone is racing for 2nd and 3rd are distinctly unsatisfying. Declaring sky as a super strong team is just bleh.... liked froome's downhill attack and thats about it. The Ventoux $4it show was a cruel disappointment for what should have been a big showdown. Just never felt the race took shape. Wanted Aru to do something special - but that fizzled. Hats off to Froome - just super suspicious of this kind of dominance.

The only *good* thing about the Tour this year was that Froome built the foundation of his win on stages when it wasn't expected, specifically his attack on the descent and his ride w/ Sagan on a flat stage in the crosswinds. he was willing to throw the playbook out when opportunities arose.

But overall, that race was just a big bowl of "Meh....."
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!
