Just started today's stage and they flashed their Covid rules. If two riders from the same team test positive within 7 days the entire team is sent home. That's huge and could really impact the tour

wait'll ya see the Peyreysourde. It looks like every other mountain stage with fans lining the roads, etc. Nice to see something looking "normal", but probably not advisable.

Just watched it. Props to the 75% that are masked up. Seriously, very impressed. But those that don't or have it pulled down so they can yell at the riders  tOfficial 2020 Tour Dr France Thread.. - Page 2 294152859

I mean the risk is probably extremely low and I generally don't gaf if you are non-mask guy. But fuck, on the odd chance it does happen, you can really fuck up a whole team.

Roglic looks like the guy to beat. I assume he was prob the fav going in. He had no trouble with that climb and his team was strong.

I know. Lots of potential for havoc. Luckily, everyone made it through clean it looked like.

Well-deserved rest day tomorrow.

Christian Prudhomme (race director) tests positive. Haven't heard about any cyclists yet. Just tuned in from my run. Flat day, maybe the last day for sprinters before Paris.

Good day for a long breakaway though.

All riders cleared. 4 team staffers sent home.

The 166 remaining Tour de France riders have been cleared to continue racing ahead of Tuesday’s Stage 10 after undergoing COVID-19 tests, but the race director is going home.


Tour organizers said that all the riders’ tests returned negative but announced that race director Christian Prudhomme tested positive along with four staff members from four different teams who have been dropped from the race bubble.


The four staff who tested positive work for Cofidis, AG2R La Mondiale, defending champion Egan Bernal's Inos Grenadiers and Mitchelton Scott, meaning those four squads were under the threat of being excluded.

yeah was watching this morning.

Like we've said, he's missing a step this year. Was happy for Bennett, though. A lot of emotion on the podium when they were interviewing him. It's easy to lose track of what a stage win can mean to a rider.

caught today's stage.. a bit of controversy on the finish.

(spoiler alert, Nordic)






Sagan was coming up to Van Aert's right on the finish.. he was caught between Van Aert and the barrier. Sagan leaned in with his shoulder and head and sort of pushed his way through. It was unclear if his line ever changed, but not a smart move by Sagan. Could've been dangerous. Van Aert was in contention but that disrupted his sprint.

some words and hand gestures clearly exchanged as they crossed.

I've always thought Sagan to be a good sportsman. Maybe it was his frustration coming through. Either way, he was relegated to the end of that group. I'd say he was pretty lucky - could've been a worse penalty than that.

Yep.

The Tour starts today. Wouldn't be surprised if there are 2-3 GC guys within a minute of each other on next Saturday's 36 K mountain TT.

These last 8-9 stages will be brutal days in the saddle.

some real battling going on out there today.

(spoiler alert Nordic):





Gotta believe that Cosnerfroy won't be wearing the polka dots this evening. He's off the back with only one climb to go.

I know.. Look at those profiles. Shocked

Like I said the other day.. the Tour basically began Friday. Two cat 1 climbs and an HC finish today.

Sagan cutting into Bennett's green jersey a bit but the window is closing (or has closed) on him wearing it into Paris.

Now THAT is what GC guys are supposed to do on the Columbier.

How about Sepp Kuss?

back in the saddle for stage 16.

another day in the Alps. Still think Roglic is in control of the race but I still think, barring anything insane, it'll come down to Saturday's mountain TT.

Bernal is out of the GC contention.. gotta wonder if he maybe dialed it back yesterday in hopes of getting a stage win at some point?
