    Football. Footballer gets tackled and needs immediate medical attention. Can’t continue for the rest of the match. Cycling. Cyclist crashes. Full of road-rash and dislocated shoulder. Doctor pops it back in and he completes a 188km race. Legend.

      @VELOCITY FPV but you cant get away from the fact, that soccer players act like primadonnas, even when they just get pushed. i know its part of the game, but its a disgusting act, and a joke


      it's not about the pain, it's about gaining an advantage, it's part of the sport and a huge margin of winning sadly. If cyclist got free kicks after a crash they'd also be milking crashes

    Don't understand why Wout wasn't told to wait for primoz. A stage win is more important than winning the tour? Plus his engine and tt ability would've been a massive help to bring the gap down.

      @Dante Intx i wouldn't call it like that. WVA is one of the best sprinters/TT-specialists in the world. I think the other 6 riders of jumbo visma should do their job for primoz roglic :3

      Jumbo Visma told in a press conference that WVA is allowed in the first week to do his own thing. He isn't there to help primoz roglic - he is allowed to go for stage wins and so he does

      @Leo D'Arcy what is your problem? Did you do the editing? They generally produce much better highlights packages than this. I was surprised as to how amateur it was which reflects badly on their brand. I don't imagine they'd be too happy with it either. Not sure why this makes you so offended. Resorting to insults is pretty pathetic imo which ironically reflects on your own intelligence.

    Tour de France... 10 feet wide for the sheep roads, race organization is a disaster.

  • Nikolaus Schallhart
    Nikolaus Schallhart

    Can anybody please help me to understand this? Today was stage 3 of the Tour de France 2021. The stage was designed to be a sprinters stage and because it was only stage 3 there still was a huge peloton with all the sprinters in it. Additionally, there was neither a prologue nor a ttt prior to this stage which would possibly have settled general classification till the mountain stages. Therefore, even the GC contenders would try to sprint for bonus seconds. All this information made it clear, that there would be a furious pace in the last 10 km and literally everybody in this big peloton would try to be as far at the front of the race as possible… And then you look at the last 10 km of the stage…WTF! On 80% of this last 10 km the road was even too narrow for 2 cars passing each other at normal speed and for sure too narrow for a whole peloton sprinting. There were no “run-off areas” like parking lots or something similar, roadsides containing grass or gravel and the penultimate km was fenced with the old dangerous barricades with their stands protrude into the street (still!!! in 2021!!!). To say severe crashes were expectable is quite an understatement. I’m just curious: Are there any reasonable rules of how the layout of the finale of a sprint stage should look like? And if yes, does the UCI care if these rules are adhered? Does the UCI really think it does a suffivcient job on riders safety when prohibiting “super tuck” and “puppy paws” because these positions are dangerous? Give me a break….

      @Nikolaus Schallhart I fully agree with the general problem. Both the fans and the UCI are at fault for that

    • Nikolaus Schallhart
      Nikolaus Schallhart

      @Tobias Korch Westphal Well, not at the finish line, you are right about that. But on the other hand, that does not change much about the general problem, I think.

      GC contenders do not try to sprint for bonus seconds on these types of stages.

    Glad they banned the super tuck and the aero position to prevend crashes!

    Ewan half-wheeled Merlier along the barriers, hit his wheel and took down Sagan. Desperation move.

    • okimy

      @M M In the broadcast there was an overhead shot, but not in this video, that's what I meant. But anyway, the important thing is that Ewan is okay (relatively) and will race again, and that no one got a penalty undeservedly.

    • M M
      M M

      @okimy There is an overhead shot. Merlier didn't slow, he stood up to sprint and because Ewan's wheel was overlapped, he got taken out. It's his own fault. As a sprinter you have to protect your own front wheel.

    • okimy

      It wasn't really anyone's fault in this case. They didn't show the overhead shot so you can't see it as easily, but what happend was basically: Merlier wanted to go (to the left of his leadout man), but he (I think it's Philipsen) was still sprinting all out and a bit further left than Merlier expected. So he had to stop pedalling for a split second as he went left. Ewan also went left to follow him, but didn't anticipate that Merlier would wait a split second, so just hit his back wheel instead of being in the draft, as he expected Merlier to be faster. That's pretty much a racing incident, Sagan was just collateral damage, if you want to say so. The only one to criticize might be the people responsible for the course, but this isn't as clear a case as some in the past. Turn the video speed down to 0,5 and you can see it at 2:49

      Sagan gave him a little nudge therefore causing him to half wheel and clip the wheel.
