Blowing your nose, or just taking your hands off the bike for any reason, at 60kph on a TT bike is just shockingly dumb.....

And who can't clear both nostrils at the same time, anyway?

Was probably taking a puff from his inhaler.

Too soon?

In all sincerity, I feel really bad for him.  I beyond loath Sky/Ineos, Brailsford and their entire MO, but that's no way to lose the Tour.

Femur, elbow, ribs.

Sneezed and broke ribs?  I think he is building his case for that inhaler

Apparently that sneeze was premeditated; that he signaled to the following Wout Poel beforehand. Also that this was done in gusting winds and that there were houses along the side of the road. Perfect setup for wild side gusts.

Saw on another forum a claim that Sambuterol (sp) causes sneezes.

Hell of a consolation prize. But not worth it.

On Dumoulin...this weekend's MRI scan revealed that what they thought was a tiny piece of metal in knee was in fact some road gravel. It has been removed this weekend. But he's had multiple types of knee issues last weeks so we will see...

I am revisiting my idea that the Tour will be a GC processional, mostly because I don't think Thomas has the form he had last year...but Ineos can still address that by locking down the field after a strong TTT.

The sad reality is that there is no strong contender for the Tour this year...maybe it will actually be Bernal.
