If we're talking about fiddling with rules, some quick thoughts:

1) Ultimately, I'm fine with any explicit set of rules that are clear, coherent, and ruthlessly enforced. By the way, the UCI does...

I shall look forward to October, not as an opportunity to make up for those questionable decisions, but for the chance to make more of them.

Winner time of 52m30s would time cut Ewan. I went in to do the math just now and saw Sam Bennett 16s behind Ewan. Wow. Does Sagan still have a chance at green?

It looks flat so Bennett should pocket whatever points the break doesn't take. Bora needs a rest. Several stages next week look better for Sagn v Bennett. I expect to see Sagan try to get away but...

I missed the first little bit and how Tejay dropped from the break. Was there a turn?

Somehow, he managed to do that on his own. I didn't pick and curse him. I resisted the temptation.
