If there's cross winds all day today, Carapaz and Vingegaard are really gonna miss Luke Rowe and The Panzerwagon

Nah, Declerq will jump on the front just now, and all his shoulders will negate any winds

De Panzerwagen got his diesel engine shot out in Stage 1. He's been more Volksiewagen lately till he unfortunate exit yesterday. Hope he heals up quickly

Must admit, the commentators were bloody annoying. Ranting on on how Podjacar had cracked and that Jonas was riding into yellow

the commentators on SS are extremely annoying, the aussie always falling over his words and the other one STILL cant pronounce Pogacar correctly, nevermind the fact that he seemingly cracked etc

Just saw Peter Sagan is out of the tour ... 😟

My tour dreams of him winning a stage are officially over! 🥲 what a pity, but his knee said that it won’t take him to Paris! So I guess you have to listen or risk further injury. My ultimate stage finish would of been Cav and Sagan in Paris fighting  it out! That would of been an epic way to end the 2021 edition.

Sagan says he banged his knee on his handlebar and hurt it.....

 

I've actually done that and it hurts like hell! Not sprinting at the Tour de France mind you.

Even walking is painful, never mind 53x 13 for a few hours through the french countryside....🙈

Was this always a thing? It seems knee injuries have become really common among the sprinters?

Clearly a lie. In a clash between Sagan's knee and a pair of handlebars, there is only one winner. He must just be a bit tired.

Agreed. Gerrans (the aussie) just repeats exactly what Ant says when he gets asked a question:

Ant: "Simon, given that this group is 5 minutes ahead and it is raining, will they be able to bridge over from the peleton?"

Gerrans: "Well yes exactly, its raining, and they are 5 minutes ahead, so it remains to be seen if they can bridge over from the peleton"

Agree. Also vey biased towards the Brits / British based teams.

I thought I was the only one annoyed by their double teaming. We really need a Rob Warner + Robbie Hunter commentary combo here
