Thanks CK!

After suffering through the NBCsn feed with the massive amounts of commercials and blabbering of Bob and Phil, I paid the $4.99 for a month of Peacock. Plus I can now catch up with Ray Donovan ; )

Yeah, JA started this Tour off on a good note. Now if we could only bring the early Tour crashes down by a (say) factor of 3.

Sagan was on the ground for quite a while. Any word on how he's doing?

French police are looking for the suspect that was holding the sign. It was a woman.

I read an opinion on Bike Forums that the French should enact a law that anyone interfering with a race pay 3X the damages. Also that fellow spectators who tackle and pull back those who interfere be protected by law. I think itshould go further. Those who do not do their best to corral that spectator be considered accessories.

Edit:  Discovery: when  we go to a new page, we lose that 3 acre formatting!  I'm back to eliminate the returns to make my post readable.

Stage 2 was huge in so many ways.

Stage 2 was huge in so many ways.
Not the least of which is Nairo Quintana leading Carl Sagan in the race for the green jersey.  (2 points to none.)    After 2 stages where Sagan was supposed to be distancing the sprinters.

And seriously - did Sagan suffer injuries ysterday?

Back to the riders. Clearly just there to be seen. Didn't do the "sea parting" thing, as is expected. Just selfish, stupid, and generally effed up in so many ways.

Simon Gerrans has a voice best suited for torture.

Van der Poel. CyclingNews today has a write-up on his yellow bike. Talks of how he missed his dream of winning Stage 1 in honor of his grandfather. To make up for it, all he had to do was take the full 18 points at the two final climbs of Mûr-de-Bretagne and finish with a gap.

In honor of his grandfather, the bike wears the message "Allez PouPou. 14 Tours, 7 stage wins, 3 second and 5 third steps. Yellow was not meant to be till now. Allez Mathieu."

Well that was ugly. Another $100,000 in bike gear headed for the dumpster today and 50 grand for Tegaderm.
