Froome and Aru insist barge was 'genuine mistake — In Italy

Tour de France 2017 Stage 9

The show goes on pretty quickly. "I would be straight after him".

"Everyone is wanting to hear my side so hear it is", Nunes wrote on Twitter. What's proper, what's right? Last year, he kept plugging away and rode to second overall, 4:05 slower than Froome. "So I think it will hit me tomorrow and in a few days time". This Tour is now without some of its better riders, and it's far from decided. It is a competitive bike race.

"I'm very pleased with the team and how they are supporting me". That's enough to rally a nation. We are told that mountaintop finishes create conservative racing, with stalemates until the final climb; that the way forward for cycling is to finish at sea level, and the racing will be more aggressive from further out.

"In this case, there's nothing to do other than get back to the bike and trying to reach the finish line".

Bardet isn't cowering at the challenge.

But the savage stage that included seven categorised climbs, including the three steepest of the entire race, had taken its toll. He lost nearly four hours.

In other words, even for someone so heavily vested in the outcome, the inclusion of the Mont du Chat was not unreasonable.

"The images of Richie's crash were just absolutely horrific", he said. The peloton lay decimated in its wake. Nairo Quintana, Colombia, Movistar, 2:13; 9. But for the moment it's still pretty raw. He was hauled away in ambulance, and doctors later confirmed fractures to his pelvis and clavicle. Port was one of the race favorites and was within a minute of leader Chris Froome.

With fast men Peter Sagan, Arnaud Demare and Mark Cavendish all out of the race, Matthews has been presented with a golden opportunity.

To add to the off-bike worries, Sky found itself in the centre of a row over their time-trial skin suits at the Grand Depart in Germany, while team principal Dave Brailsford has been snubbing the media since his opening news conference, though Froome and his teammates have been cooperative. Even if sometimes crashes are not linked to the risk which a rider takes, but more to the bad luck or fate. It didn't wait to see if Richie Porte could continue. When did he attack? Dan Martin had the guts to call out the organizers on Sunday. The sport has changed significantly since then. I won the first stage and wore the yellow jersey last week, one of the highlights of my career.

Riders can use the Unwritten Rulebook for semi-nefarious purposes too. Sky's Ian Stannard crashed in the leadup to Mont Ventoux, falling behind Simon Gerrans.

Froome was enraged two years ago when he felt Aru's Italian compatriot Vincenzo Nibali had done likewise on another Tour stage.

"I feel the best strategy is to be consistent every day and achieve solid performances". The Tour resumes Tuesday with the 10th stage, a 110.6-mile ride from Perigueux to Bergerac. Always has been, just ask poor Christophe. "Resurfacing has made it smoother. and very slippery". It's hard to watch Contador's decline at this year's race.

"But I just remember I locked the back wheel up, and that was it really". Some of these unwritten rules exist as a method of self-preservation.

At least he's still in one piece, though. Leaving it unwritten makes it no less absurd.
