MOK was watching that head to head today downstairs while i was working upstairs - he ran up to insist i put the tv on in my office and watch the final battle!
As for the fairness in the 'chaingate' incident - I just don't get the whole TDF spirit i suppose - as far as i am concerned , if it's an international sporting race then everyone should just try as hard as poss to win and if a rider loses their chain then so be it.
Though i appreciate this is not good behaviour in this event.
how weird is it that a sport that has one of the worst records of any sport for drug abuse ie. cheating - gets all pedantic about riders not behaving in a 'gentlemanly' wayin the case of a perfectly straightforward case of mechanical failure (and/or rider error)
Seems ridiculous to me.
If you were a top runner, would you stop for another runner in a 10k who's shoe fell off in the last 500m ?
