I agree that he is a smart rider, but smart people sometimes do dumb things. He crashed on stage 17 and he should have cycled the downhill conservatively. There was no way he was going to win the...

Volta a Catalunya

I never saw this before. In today's stage 5 they go through a 5.2 km tunnel, exiting about 5 km before the finish. All we see are helicopter shots of mountains and there is no information about what...

Glad to see Alberto go out with a great win. Why was Aru so far back, did he have an incident or did he pay for working so hard on earlier stage?

Disgusting that the GC contenders did not wait for him. I only saw highlights and it appeared that Nibali was the aggressor, but headlines say it was Movistar. I am disgusted with all of them.

He finished 23rd out of 190 riders, so he is well above average, and he time trials well uphill. But I agree that he would dominate grand tours if he were a better time trialer on the flats.

Not the fault of the Eurosport announcers, but the Spanish director who neglected the leaders until the final 100 m. Who was Kirby's partner for the final two stages? It wasn't Backstedt.
