Le tour de France - 2017


#725

I think it might be attacking whilst yellow jersey is at BBQ


#726

Another day, another stage win for my fantasy team. Easy.


#727

Losing 22 seconds over 400m suggests that maybe it would have been quicker to hop out of the saddle and run it.


#728

well he has been known to


#729

No it doesnt


#730

How fast do you think they were riding up that last bit?

If I was as fit as Froome, I’d could run 400m in just over a minute, probably.


#731

Didn’t watch but in a big kick they can go up even the biggest gradients at 20km/h+
And he wouldn’t be able to run 400m in a minute on that sort of slope


#732

I genuinely doubt you could run 400m up that gradient in under 2 minutes tbh, and especially not after ~200km on your bike.


#733

I might not have been 100% serious

(20kmph means that 400m would take you 72 seconds)


#734

:grinning: it took Bardet 70+ seconds to cover the last 400m, no chance a fatigued runner is going to come close


#735

In cleats :joy:


#736

Taking a water bottle whilst in the no feed zone. Apparently Bardet does the same, but not penalised


#737

bardet took a bottle from a spectator, but just to pour over his head


#738

Still not allowed


#739

Much like Bouhanni’s punch and Demare’s irregular sprint, I’m 100% certain that the lack of punishment has nothing to do with Bardet’s nationality


#740

The point was whether Froome could have run it quicker than 92+ seconds.


#741

no, he couldn’t’ve


#742

guys, stop making le tour boring


#743

Good stage that. Id be so pissed off I was kwiato or vas, putting those shifts in then seeing froome lose 25 seconds in 3 metres.

Aru was so happy to be in yellow in his interview: lovely to see.

George Bennett having the race of his life.


#744

I quite admire them for the complete ‘its our fucking tour, fuck off foreigners we make the rules and ner ner ner ner ner’ attitude, least they dont ever pretend in any way to be neutral.
