The graphics towards the end that showed the first 10 or so in the standings...followed by a list of 10......wait for it....open water swimmers  (with wrong flags, and at least two names being in the

Good to see Josip Rumac entered. Our first GT rider in a while.   I saw him couple of times, riding around my hometown.

Indeed, races should only be held in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, all almost covid free thanks to their self-disciplines. Let's just scrap races in this mafia driven country , I'm boycotting them

And then the stage went back up to possibly 180km, then riders were standing around in the rain on the roads waiting for the bus of their teams to turn around and pick them up for a 100km stage and now it seems to be 112km from godknowswhere to probably the original finish location.

 

What an epic mess. Also Wilco Kelderman's luck: finally he has a big leader's jersey and his one glorious day to show it is washed away in a sea of rain and chaos :lol:

wait! that's not godknowswhere at all...:finger:

 

they're starting from the legendary (small) town of Abbiategrasso (which literally means "have fat" :yikes: :lol:), slightly less than 20km down the road from where I live (I'm literally on the south western border of the city of Milan)...

and the first part of the stage (until Vigevano) is the same road I'm used to cover all weeks to go to the small village where my parents were born (and where now my mom's grave is)...

 

so, once again...it's not godknowswhere...I know very well where they are now...:evil: :d

 

 

by the way, according to the latest news, they're supposed to start exactly while I'm writing this post (clearly they are going to ride until the original finish line for about 120 kms)...

I didn't mean to offend the place where they start, I meant that the start location seems to have changed 87 times today so I meant it like "Who knows where they'll start" :p Apparently by now it's sort of decided then, excellent!

I know...I was just joking about the fact that I know those places very well, being the "lands of my life"...;)

Which is awesome. At least I'd find it awesome, I remember how excited I was when Olympia's Tour (an U23 race) had a stage finish in my little home town (and a year later even a stage finish, a whole time trial and a start!), roughly 15 years ago :d 

 

Jukka Vastaranta won the sprint, I see Matti Breschel, Niki Terpstra, Thomas Dekker (lol), mountain king Kenny van Hummel, 2016 sudden surprise Sergey Firsanov and a year later among others one of my all-time favourites, Robert Gesink in the results, cool :d

Lol I thought it was because of weather but it seems this is not the cause. So now some teams can protest and force the organizers to change a stage the day before or on the same day because they don't like it or it's too long according to them:facepalm:
