And here it comes...
 
The endless discussion on who waited or didn't wait for who.

I believe it would be "who waited for whom." One refers to the subject, one to the object.

I thank you, good sir.

I would add a more substantive comment, but I won't watch the stage until tonight.

Not even sure what you are talking about to be honest?

It was polite of multiple contenders to biff on the same corner?

Quintana should have turned around and road back to Contador when AC went down.

Is the etiquette different if the delay is a crash caused by oneself as opposed to a "mechanical" or a crash caused by an outside source?

A bit. But the main issue is if they were really racing when the problem occurred.

The basic concept is that it is very poor from to attack because of a mechanical. This also applies far less to those looking for a stage than GC contenders.

Unless there is no real issue at all. As is the case here. ;)

That's what I remember it being. Once the 99ers were here though it morphed into the idea that everyone should more or less stop and wait for that rider to catch up.

Are those the same 99ers who claimed that no one could either win 2 major Jerseys in one Tour and win 2 Grand Tours in the same year because things were totally different now when guys like me would point out that Lance never accomplished either? After all it was a long time since the last time either had been accomplished! <end sarcasm>.

Why Stomachs of Anger suck:

Taaremeaa (what was I thinking?) - zero points, nada, nothing.

Gilbert

Van Garteren didn't live up to expectations for sure.

Cunego (what was I thinking?)

Van den Broeck, not his fault he biffed.

And at least Tony Martin won a stage, but overall that couldn't redeem this squad.

Next year I'll probably put all my eggs in Cad Evans basket.
