We had a thread for last year’s big bike race. Stage 4 of this year’s event just completed and, well, wow. Race officials initially gave World Champion (and Epic Douchebag Model) Peter Sagan a 30 second GC penalty for his role in a crash that seems to have ended Mark Cavendish’s participation, but has since been disqualified entirely. Battle lines seem fairly set at this point with most opinions either in the “Ridiculously unfair” or “Totally justified” camps. Let me preface this by saying I hate Sagan’s stupid face and don’t like it when he’s on TV for my wife to make googley eyes. I tend to fall in line with this video’s take. I think the punishment is uncalled for and probably focuses on some damning still shots that don’t tell the whole story. https://cf-e2.streamablevideo.com/v...-G3PrvMU06B7O1hcUrJD7f5DQueG7XneRpmZmrl1KBc0= Coincidentally, if you look at the Stage 3 finish, Sagan takes a much more black and white shot at a competitor that didn’t lead to a crash. I can’t find the overhead video of it here, but he steers into a rider in red and leads with his shoulder. The other rider looks at him and backs off. What say ye?
